Vocational Opportunity for Higgs & Sons Trainee

A Black Country trainee solicitor is taking part in a Rotary exchange project with the Czech Republic and Slovakia next week, where she will take part in various vocational activities.

Jenny Tetlow, a graduate and second year trainee at Higgs & Sons, has been invited by Rotary International District 1210 to take part in the annual Vocational Study Exchange (VSE) during a two week trip travelling to different Rotary Clubs across the country.

The Rotary Club of Dudley is sponsoring Jenny to be part of the VSE team.

Club member Graham Dean, who is also chairman of the District VSE committee, said: “We are pleased to sponsor Jenny as part of the Rotary Club of Dudley’s wide ranging support of young people in Dudley.”

Jenny said: “I’m really excited to join the VSE Team on International Service which aims to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the world. We will be taking part in numerous vocational and cultural activities.

“Although the full programme has yet to be confirmed, I’m hoping to really get under the skin of the country and do whatever I can to help, in whatever capacity that might be.”

Rotary clubs carry out a wide range of international programmes and activities designed to reach out to people in need throughout the world, supporting programmes to: eradicate poverty, hunger and malnutrition; improve water supplies and sanitation; reduce child mortality; control diseases; achieve education for all.

Jenny joined Higgs & Sons following completion of her degree at the University of Birmingham and the LPC. During her third year, she lived and studied French law in Bordeaux where she was able to embrace the French culture and travel to various cities across Europe during her spare time – hopefully standing her in good stead for her trip to the Czech Republic.
