Timms Solicitors Expands Talent Management Programmes

Timms Solicitors have appointed three trainee solicitors as part of the latest stage of the firm’s innovative talent management ‘Pathway’ Programme.

Molly Evans, who worked at Timms as a Paralegal, and University of Derby graduates Connor Ball-Wood and Michael Radze-Constable have all recently started their two-year training contracts.

Supported by a training manager, they will gain valuable work experience across different areas of law at Timms including Family/Care, Wills and Probate, Commercial Property, Residential Conveyancing, Personal Injury and Employment.

After successfully completing their structured training programme and professional skills course, they will qualify as solicitors and apply for their practising certificate.

Fiona Moffat is Managing Partner at Timms Solicitors which has offices in Derby’s Cathedral Quarter, Burton, Swadlincote and Ashby.

She explained that the Trainee Solicitor Pathway Programme joined existing Associate and Partner programmes which had been established to support future leaders at the firm.

“Having seen the benefit of training contracts in the past, our HR Manager Gemma Lynch and Training Principal Adrian Rose developed a structured programme under the umbrella of our unique Pathway Programme.

“As a firm with a solid reputation for serving our local communities in an approachable and professional manner, we continue to grow and develop into new areas.

“The firm needs strong and determined people at all levels and our aim through the talent management programmes is therefore to attract, nurture and develop talented individuals through a structured and bespoke approach.”

Molly Evans joined Timms’ in 2021 in the Conveyancing team after completing her Undergraduate Law Degree at Keele University and then the Legal Practice Course and Masters Degree at Birmingham City University. Her first seat is within the Wills and Probate team in Derby and Burton. Molly’s progression from Paralegal to Trainee Solicitor reinforces the firm’s commitment to developing both internal and external candidates.

Connor Ball-Wood obtained his law Degree from the University of Derby in 2019 before going on to complete the LPC Part-time at the University of Derby in 2021. Whilst studying for the LPC, Connor worked in various legal roles, providing him with experience in a number of different areas of law. His first seat is with the Conveyancing teams in Derby and Burton.

Michael Radze-Constable completed his LLB and LPC at the University of Derby between 2017 and2021. He is currently in his first seat in Public Family Law focusing on Child Care at Timms’ Derby Office under the supervision of Solicitor Dee Khunkhuna.
