Corporate Commercial team inspire next generation

09 November 2017

Ellisons’ Managing Partner, Seamus Clifford, and Solicitor, David Heller, visited Thomas Lord Audley School on Friday 4th November, to meet with students in an interview situation. 

The school had 142 year-11 students participate in the day, with each of them participating in an interview to help prepare them for life after school. Seamus and David were very pleased to be able to help the students overcome any interview fears they may have had and help the school in this worthwhile project.
