The legal profession wasn’t always what inspired Gillian. She worked on a number of magazines after gaining her Masters in Journalism and was heading for a career in broadcasting. But while working her way up at the BBC, in its Rights, Legal and Business Affairs team, she uncovered that law really piqued her interest.
After a brief time working in the in-house legal services team for Northumbria University, Gillian joined the commercial team at Muckle where her insider knowledge of the public sector is put to good use advising on regulatory procedures and requirements.
Gillian also advises on a range of commercial legal areas, particularly data protection where she supports organisations with drafting privacy and data protection policies and agreements, data mapping, implementing best practice and training inhouse legal teams.
Having formally started her training contract in the Construction team in 2020, she is currently working within our Corporate team – her second seat.
Multi-talented Gillian has also taught English professionally, has been a chalet host on the Alps, bakes, skis, jogs, spins, dances and does yoga. We wonder, is there anything Gillian can’t do?
