Team News 

This month we are pretty quiet in terms of the comings and goings of team members but we do have some very exciting news!

F-LEX are hiring in Manchster!

Yes, we are on the look out for a new F-LEX Associate to join our Commercial Development Scheme in the Manchester office.

The CDS is a program for future lawyers, with or without a training contract, who are looking to hone their commercial skills before they start their legal careers. As an Associate, you will receive unparalleled commercial exposure to all aspects of a successful Legal Tech Start Up. You’ll be supporting our growth across the UK and shaping the future direction of the company, whilst gaining fantastic practical experience to build your CV and prepare you for a future career in law.

The F-LEX Book Club

This month we have an absolute cracker. Our October book of the month is Matthew Syed’s, Rebel Ideas: The Power of Diverse Thinking.

As those of you battling away with applications know, diversity is one of the hot topics in the legal sphere. This intelligent, entertaining and illuminating series of case studies is an excellent examination of the topic.

Providing both general arguments of the importance of diversity and the causal link between diversity and success and a series of individual applications, this book will help you finally nail that diversity question.

Many of you may already have read it but if not be sure to grab a copy and let us know what you think.

Alternatively, if you know somebody that would benefit from this, pass this message on to them!
