A LAW firm in Bury has promoted a senior member of staff to their conveyancing team.

Bosses at Clough & Willis say they have promoted long-term employee Caroline Rimmer.

Caroline, who joined Clough & Willis in 1990, is now a conveyancing assistant for the department.

Over the past three decades she has held various support and fee earning roles. After she had her son in 2007, Caroline stepped back and worked part-time.

But she has decided that now is the time for her to resume her career and focus on fee earning and growing her technical knowledge.

Caroline will be working alongside the seven-strong property team, including Lorraine Stratton-Webb who heads up the department. She will be assisting in all areas of residential conveyancing.

Lorraine said: “Caroline is hugely respected within the firm. She knows the business inside out and her promotion is thoroughly deserved.”

Caroline added: "I’ve spent my working life at Clough & Willis and I’ve never wanted to work anywhere else. I’m incredibly grateful to the senior team for giving me this opportunity."
