Reece Ashmore, Trainee Employment Solicitor
Reece graduated with a First Class Honours in Law (LLB Hons) at the University of Strathclyde in May 2018. During his studies, he developed a keen interest in employment law, which is highlighted by his choice of dissertation topic: the employment status classification issues faced by Uber, for which he achieved a mark of 80%.
He also completed the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice in Law at the University of Strathclyde in March 2019.
Before starting his traineeship, Reece has been employed in a number of roles across a variety of different sectors, obtaining valuable skills and gaining exposure to different working practices and cultures – from working as a lifeguard and swimming instructor to being employed as a COVID Testing Operative.
Outside of work, one of Reece’s favourite hobbies is running. In October 2016, he completed the Glasgow Half Marathon, raising over £2,000 for Cancer Research UK. In the last couple of years, he has continued his fundraising efforts, raising over £1,300 for Movember UK by attempting to grow a moustache and running 60km during the month of November.
