An apprentice at Fidler & Pepper Solicitors has been shortlisted for an award.

Sophie Wise has made it to the finals of the first Johnston Press North Midlands and South Yorkshire Apprenticeship of the Year awards, being held on Tuesday, May 16 at the Showroom Workstation in Sheffield.

Sophie, who works in the conveyancing department, said: “It’s exciting news to be told that you have been shortlisted for an award like this.

“I love being an apprentice at Fidler & Pepper. You learn a lot from people and by doing the job and you feel like you can ask anybody anything.

“It would be great to win of course but it’s just brilliant that the work of apprentices is being recognised.”

Zena Wardle, from headline sponsor Polypipe, said "I felt privileged to be a part of the judging panel. I was astounded by the number of entrants and also the high standards and enthusiasm displayed.

"Each and every apprentice is a credit to themselves, their employers and their families and I commend them all."
