Find your Co-op job


Getting started

After finishing university, I went to work in a call centre, but I knew I wanted to use my Law degree and I was eager to get some real legal experience. Eventually, I got a job as a Legal Assistant at Co-op Legal Services. Co-op has always had a great reputation in Manchester, was really excited to get my foot in the door of such a prestigious firm.

I started out as an assistant in probate operations, and I learned a lot during my time there. So, when I got the opportunity to become a Case Manager, I was keen to apply and take on more responsibility. I’d seen plenty of other colleagues climb the ladder at Co-op, so I knew internal progression was a big possibility. The time I spent as a Legal Assistant gave me a great foundation build on, and my colleagues and managers have been supportive throughout. I hope I can pursue a long career at Co-op.

New opportunities

I started at Co-op almost 2 years ago, right after finishing my undergraduate law degree. Before I got the job as a Legal Assistant, I wasn’t sure if a career in law was for me. I was worried I wouldn’t find it interesting, but I still applied for the role. As soon as I started working in Co-op Legal Services, I realised that law doesn’t have to be boring and repetitive.

At Co-op, no two days are the same, and it’s so fulfilling to help people who need support.

Not only do I work for a company that cares about its employees and clients, but also the environment and our communities.  

Recently, I was given the opportunity to interview for a Case Manager position in the Probate Department, and I was thrilled when I was offered the role. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a lot of work, but I’ve never been so eager to learn and be challenged by my role. I couldn’t be happier about my career.
