Suzannah has ambitions to become a solicitor

Sometimes to reach your objective you have to go back and try a different route.


Suzannah Fairchild was honest with herself and quit a law degree course because it wasn’t right for her.


She enrolled on a course at Doncaster College and then landed herself a plum job at a prestigious, local law firm.


"I want to be a Solicitor one day so this is the first step of the legal ladder for me," Suzannah said.


"I loved it, it taught me lots of useful skills for the future."


In 2010 she completed a very successful two-week placement at HRS Law in Doncaster where she assisted a solicitor in the police station and in the courtroom. She was then offered the position of Legal Secretary and was able to take up that post when her course finished in July.


Kendra Culley, Course Leader for ILEX Level 2 Administration and Secretarial, said, "Suzannah has been an excellent student and came to us in September with ambitions of gaining employment within the legal sector.


"She has completed her placement with HSR Law and shown 100% commitment to this.


"I am delighted that she has secured a position with this prestigious local legal practice and it is well deserved. We wish Suzannah every success for the future."
