Gatehouse Chambers. After leaving Exeter in 1998 I undertook Bar School part time while working part time in London as a receptionist. In 2002 I obtained a pupillage at Hardwicke Building, following which I was offered a tenancy. I have practiced there (although we changed our name to Gatehouse Chambers in 2021) ever since and specialise in personal injury and professional negligence work.

Severn Trent Plc. Well, just after leaving the University, I got busy with childcare as I was pregnant whilst I was on the course, which was a rare case I guess 🙂 But at the same time, I was applying for different jobs and few months later I was offered a position of Assistant Manager at The Watches of Switzerland in Plymouth. I worked with them for 10 months before I finally got my dream job of working for Severn Trent (Top FTSE companies) on Graduate Leadership Program.
