School Leaver Programme - Progression Routes

For those individuals who are looking to gain employment within a legal environment and then continue to progress through the firm, there are several routes that can be taken.

All successful schools leavers will begin their working career with Forbes as an Office Assistant and may then look to progress in the following way:

Office Assistant → Trainee Secretary → Secretary → Office Manager


Office Assistant → Trainee Legal Clerk → Paralegal → FILEX/Trainee Solicitor

Needless to say, these are long term goals and can take time to achieve however they are possible with a lot of hard work and determination on your part.
