Legal technology innovator Peppermint Technology is delighted to support the development of the UK’s young talent by hiring four apprentices under the Microsoft-supported Apprenticeship Scheme.

The apprentices will fulfil roles in Peppermint’s development and support departments where they will gain exposure to Peppermint’s products and business. As part of the programme, each apprentice will receive one year’s training investment from Microsoft to gain relevant qualifications that are equivalent to Level 3 and 4 City & Guilds.

In a time when many businesses are struggling, Peppermint is breaking the mould and enjoying considerable success in establishing itself as the new market leader in the crowded legal technology market. Following more than two years in development, Peppermint’s Legal Service Platform was launched earlier this year. In February 2012 the first client, DLA Piper-backed Riverview Law, went live and operational, followed by PI specialist Tandem Law. With many more in the pipeline, Peppermint is set to be one of the decade’s big success stories.

Peppermint’s CEO, Arlene Adams says, “I am delighted Peppermint is able to offer four young talented individuals a chance to build a career. Young people today face enormous pressures and cost when trying to establish themselves in the work environment and this apprenticeship scheme offers them a great opportunity. Peppermint’s success to date is largely down to its people, many of which are from the Nottingham area. It’s important we continue to invest in the community and nurture the fresh new talent it has to offer. The apprentices offer a different perspective to our traditional thinking and I believe this will really help Peppermint deliver a better experience to customers.”

How to make a case to the unconverted

Jonathan Whittle

The prospect of change is a daunting one, whether you’re a global firm or a small one. You might think that your firm’s working practices are fine, or that there’s no value in altering the way you do things because of the disruption it would cause. You might even see the benefits of using a different methodology, but still refuse to put the effort in to implement it – and you wouldn’t be alone. From our research in the 2016 report, The Riddle of Perception, we know that 73% of lawyers believe that adapting to change is not where their strength lies. However, it’s no longer optional.
