Jackson Lees Group bolsters management team with launch of new career framework

As 2019 came to a close, award-winning law firm Jackson Lees Group launched a brand new career framework, appointing three Associate Directors and 13 Associates across the business.

This framework is a huge step forward for the business in its ongoing commitment to the development of its people and future leaders. The structure applies consistently throughout the business, across both legal and operational teams, and recognises the skills, attitude and leadership capability of the future leaders, all of whom continue to embody the group’s core value of Making a Positive Difference.

Alex Jones, Jo Lee and Nicola Brook have stepped into their new roles as Associate Directors in their respective departments Clinical Negligence, Court of Protection, and Inquests & Inquiries.

These three female Solicitors underwent a selection process and were promoted based on their commitment to Making A Positive Difference to their clients and colleagues, together with their attitude, motivation and leadership potential.

As part of the selection process, the applicants built a business plan around their personal ‘why’ – their motivation within their work – and developed their approach to commerciality and culture. They were then asked to present to the CEO Brian Cullen, COO Joanna Kingston-Davies, and Managing Director Esther Leach.

In addition to the three Associate Directors appointments, 13 Associates have also been appointed under the new framework. The Associates were recruited based on a similar set of criteria, all focused around their potential for leadership, their attitude, their commitment to continually growing the business, and their engagement with the Group’s culture.

The process was driven by Head of Culture and Engagement, and all applicants were supported with targeted training and one-to-ones, meaning all had the chance to be mentored through the journey.

In line with their further commitment to the development of their people, Jackson Lees Group are rolling out this opportunity annually.

Brian Cullen, CEO of Jackson Lees Group, said: “We are fully committed to the development of all of our people, both now and in the future.  Our new cohort of Associate Directors and Associates have all demonstrated real potential to step up, through both their cultural alignment and commercial delivery. 

“We are particularly proud to see individuals appointed from such a variety of departments and roles across the business, whether legal or operational, in keeping with our desire to recognise leadership aptitude at any and every level and not simply on technical ability or experience alone.  We are excited to be a part of the next chapter in their careers.”

Joanna Kingston-Davies, COO of Jackson Lees Group, said: “We will now be working closely with our new Associate Directors and Associates, who are all on our future leaders development programme, on their wider involvement within the business. 

“Some of the ideas that have come from them as part of the appointment process are fantastic and we are keen to empower them to implement some of the concepts they have so articulately presented. We are already looking forward to receiving some outstanding applications next year!”

Broudie Jackson Canter and Jackson Lees are part of the award-winning Jackson Lees Group. The group provides full-service legal solutions to personal and commercial clients and has over 280 employees across six offices in Merseyside and Manchester.
