Testimonies from our staff

"I started working for Cornwall Legal as a Legal Secretary in the Commercial and Employment Team.  Since then I was promoted to a Legal Assistant in the Social Care sector on a secondment opportunity.  Recently I have secured a permanent position as a Senior Legal Assistant in the same team.

I could not have done this without the support and encouragement of my managers and collegues alike and feel totally privileged to work in an environment where the time is taken to grow talent from within".

Jade Beland - Senior Legal Assistant

"After being in the Children and Adults Team for 14 and a half years as a Legal Secretary, I decided it was finally the right time to take up a new challenge!  I was anxious about applying for the LA position but after discussion with other members of the team was encouraged and supported to apply.  Although it was scary, I’m very glad I made the move as I am very much enjoying my new post!"

Sarah Jane Billington - Legal Assistant

“I initially joined Cornwall Legal as an apprentice.  I was shortly promoted to the position of legal secretary and have recently been seconded to a legal assistant. Since starting in my new role I have had the opportunity to learn a completely new area of law and have been supported by both colleagues and managers to expand my knowledge and experience. I hope to continue working towards a legal officer role and a long career with Cornwall Legal.”
