Become the best version of yourself

Welcome to CheekyLittleCareers! My aim is to help aspiring and qualified lawyers build extraordinary lives. Whether you’re looking for career success and fulfilment without burning out, gearing up for an internal promotion or want to learn a new business skill, hoping to bag your first legal job, or thinking about making a lateral move and not sure where to start, my blog is just for you.

Here you’ll find straight-talking careers and well-being advice based on my lived experiences, including being the first in my family to go to university, working as a magic circle corporate lawyer, and then ultimately escaping law to pursue a career in journalism followed by legal recruitment. I’ll also bring you regular inspirational posts from guest contributors and video interviews with leading legal industry figures.

Career Development

Learning Hub

Learning shouldn’t stop as soon as you’ve qualified as a lawyer. If you want your legal career to stay in the fast lane it’s vitally important to invest in opportunities for self-development. Click below for blogs to help enhance those all important business and life skills, including commercial awareness.


Events & Courses

I want to make learning fun and interactive. I’ve pulled together an ongoing schedule of live virtual events, webinars and courses hosted by me and third parties. These include fireside chats, panel debates, Q&As, and group coaching sessions to educate, inspire and entertain you.


Success without compromise

A genuinely holistic approach that puts wellness at the heart of everyday life is vitally important to me. Though working as lawyer can be mentally stimulating and rewarding, a legal career is notorious for being a hotbed for stress, poor mental health and burnout.

CheekyLittleCareers puts the spotlight firmly on well-being, empowering my followers to flourish at work and find career success without compromising mental and / or physical well-being.

I’m committed to posting content that offers my followers inspiration and knowhow on how to practice self-care and make sustainable choices at work and play.
