Best foot forward for Higgs' Business Walkers

A group of Higgs solicitors were on the move last week to help deliver a workshop to secondary school students as part of a ‘Business Walks’ event organised by BPS Birmingham Future.

Associate Katie Willems and trainees Jordan Hollingsworth, Shana Quinn and Emma Williams delivered a session focussing on the roles performed by legal and business support departments in a successful law firm. The event also included workshops with Aecom and Aston University and was organised by BPS Birmingham Future working with the National Careers Service (Inspiration Agenda).

"Business Walks is an excellent initiative from BPS Birmingham Future" comments Katie Willems, a Solicitor in Higgs' Corporate team, who is also Deputy Chair of BPS Birmingham Future’s Engage Committee.

"It was extremely rewarding to work with the students, giving them an insight into what life is like in the legal profession."

Business Walks is an opportunity for students in secondary schools in the greater Birmingham area to visit a number of workplaces in the Birmingham Professional Services sector and explore career opportunities across the professions.

The one-day event is designed to inspire and motivate students who wouldn’t ordinarily have access to those working in the BPS sector, helping to proactively raise students’ aspirations .
