New Chair for Manchester Trainee Solicitors Group
The Manchester Trainee Solicitors Group has appointed Slater and Gordon Solicitor Charlotte Brinsley to be their new chairperson.
Charlotte will chair the 21 person committee in co-ordinating the various networking, sporting and educational events as well as the Christmas and Summer balls. In addition to this her new role means that she will be responsible for guiding 500 members of the Manchester Trainee Solicitors Group through the start of their professional career.
Charlotte said, “It’s the ethos of Slater and Gordon Lawyers and what they stand for in helping people that has inspired me to really make a difference and provide opportunities for trainee Solicitors in Manchester.”
This is an amazing achievement for Charlotte who went head to head against a trainee from rival Solicitors George Davies to become the new chair of the Manchester Trainees Solicitors Group. It’s a well-deserved appointment as she has been highly proactive in organising plenty of fundraising and social events.
Charlotte has always been interested in organising events and fundraisers in the legal community. She has organised various events for Barnardo’s, the highlight being leading the staff of Manchester in their victory over London staff in Store Wars where we took over Bernardo’s Piccadilly branch for a day.
She has organised Christmas socials, managed the poppy appeal initiative involving members of our firm fundraising on Market Street in Manchester and worked with our own trainee Solicitors as the National Rep arranging training for them with independent organisations.
Her passion for trainees was further demonstrated as she was elected onto the Manchester Trainee Solicitors Committee and looked after the interests of 200 trainees and paralegals in small and medium sized law firms. She organised various educational events across Manchester with inspirational speakers from the Law Society and other firms, and also organised networking events, cupcake decorating, cocktail master class, and various socials.
Charlotte is a Family Law Solicitor at Slater and Gordon Lawyers in Manchester.
