AWB Charlesworth appoints new trainee solicitor

AWB Charlesworth Solicitors has appointed Anna Robinson as a new trainee solicitor.

Robinson (pictured), a first-class law degree graduate, joined AWB Charlesworth in May 2017 as a secretary in the residential property department, having previously worked in the criminal, family and litigation departments of other firms.

She completed her legal practice course at Leeds Beckett University last year and is beginning her training contract in the Skipton office of AWB Charlesworth.

Commenting on her appointment, Robinson said “I am very excited to be starting my training contract with the property team at AWB Charlesworth. I feel very fortunate to be training at a firm that truly invests in its people.”

AWB Charlesworth has offices in Skipton, Keighley, Bingley and Bradford.

The firm recently raised more than £420 for the Manorlands Hospice through the Aire-Valley professional networking group Women@Work, which it runs with NatWest Bank.

More than 30 local businesswomen met for an informal breakfast networking event held at Manorlands last month.

The group heard from Molly Ralphson, fundraiser at Manorlands, about the work of the charity and the importance of donations. The group was also joined by Deana Morgan of Deana Morgan Dance Services, who gave an inspirational talk about her business and career journey.
