Six law students from Bondholder University of Derby have been recruited by one of the largest law firms in the East Midlands, fellow Bondholder Flint Bishop.

Adina Martin, Davinder Kooner and Mzwandile Mabhena have been recruited as paralegals as part of the debt recovery team, while Sian Batcheler, Sarah Jordan and Imagin Shore have been recruited for the file management project.

Not only does Flint Bishop have large, well-known, household clients the level of expertise in the business, as a whole, was very impressive. My first few days have been great and I’m very keen to get stuck into the role and look forward to working with the team over the coming months
— Adina Martin, University of Derby Law Graduate and Paralegal at Flint Bishop

With a number of client wins and several new projects at the Derby head office, the firm partnered with the University to hire six new graduates to fulfil both the debt recovery and large scale file management project.

The University has some exceptional young people, so when these positions became available I instinctively decided to pass it over to the University in the hope of helping graduates looking for work
