Melanie Forrester

Senior Talent Development Advisor

My role is to work with our Emerging Talent Manager, to support our trainee solicitors and legal apprentices from recruitment right through to qualification.


I love working with our trainees and apprentices. Watching the next generation of lawyers develop under our care is truly inspiring. I appreciate the opportunity I have to make their working lives better, even if just in a small way. I like the fact that no day is ever the same and that I am constantly learning.


I am organised and handle pressure calmly and confidently.  I draw upon my in-depth knowledge of the firm to arrive at creative solutions. 


One of the best pieces of praise I have received is: “It’s a delight to work with such a positive person who has a great sense of humour; her bright cheery attitude is much appreciated by all who work with her”.
