So what makes a thirty something year old mother of two make the decision to walk away from an upwardly mobile career in Estate Agency into an entry level <a href=”https://www.dezrezlegal.co.uk” target=”_blank”>Conveyancing</a> position?
Moment of madness or possibly an early mid life crisis you may think? but no the answer is simply, a rare opportunity.
The offer on the table was a conveyancing assistant position with a comprehensive training plan and the opportunity to work for an upwardly mobile company that nurtured its staff up the career ladder; needless to say I grabbed the opportunity with both hands as anyone within the industry knows such offers are too few and far between.
From day one I was pleasantly surprised to find myself surrounded by highly intelligent, driven women, one could be forgiven for assuming that the legal system is completely dominated by men but a CLC study suggests 69% of the workforce within <a href=”https://www.dezrezlegal.co.uk” target=”_blank”>Conveyancing</a> is in fact made up of women. Surprising and kind of empowering I think. This is not to say that <a href=”https://www.dezrezlegal.co.uk/about-us/” target=”_blank”>Dezrezlegal </a>is completely male free, we have four equally intelligent men to balance us out.
I have found the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. There is a visible show of respect for each other amongst the teams, no stuffy boss sat behind a closed door; in fact doors are left open to discuss any concerns or worries you may have, but what I think surprises me the most is the underlying will to motivate those around you to succeed. A number of colleagues have, are or are about to study for the Licensed <a href=”https://www.dezrezlegal.co.uk” target=”_blank”>Conveyancer</a> Status via the <a href=”https://www.conveyancer.org.uk/” target=”_blank”>CLC</a> and I have to say the support from the company and colleagues alike is refreshing with a healthy dose of competiveness thrown in for good measure.

Though I have to say that no matter how difficult a transaction gets, there is a real feeling of satisfaction when all the hard work pays off and our client gets the telephone call to say you can pick up or drop off their keys.
The company does seem to acknowledge the hard work of the teams and by way of appreciation, there has been a lot of thought put into injecting a little fun into working day, quizzes, BBQ s, mini Olympics, monthly social events to name but a few. To be honest, I think the injection of down time succeeds in aiding in a more productive, cohesive team who seem to enjoy spending as much time with each other out of work as they do in.
So you would be forgiven for thinking that it has all been plain sailing, to be honest I have had a couple of wobbles, the usual new job ‘what ifs’ you know ‘what if I made a mistake’ ? ‘What if I’m not up to it’? ‘What if I really am having an early mid life crisis’? That said, slowly but surely those worries have dissipated and I really think I may be getting somewhere, I’m enjoying the work, the teams are great and I am beginning to feel like I am making some progress. So fingers crossed.
