Choose your Leeds JLD Committee for 2024
Samantha Woolley

. I feel that I have a wealth of relevant experience which would be advantageous and beneficial to the committee, as well as to the members of Leeds Junior Lawyers Division. I wish to apply to one of the above positions as I feel my current skillset could be utilised in liaising between both the Leeds Junior Lawyers Division and either Leeds Law Society or the National Junior Lawyers Division.


I currently sit on the board of trustees for a Wakefield based charity, which I find provides me with useful current experience of building and fostering relationships, a skill I feel would be required of a successful applicant. I liaise with local businesses, both through this role as trustee, as well as from a personal fundraising position, and so feel this experience would assist me in transitioning easily into a role within the committee.


Over the last 10 years I have supported several different charities, through various different fundraising events, some of which I have solely organised. I would bring to the role this prior experience, knowledge and connections, which have previously proven instrumental in the organisation of several successful large scale charity events. I would welcome the opportunity to work alongside the Events and Charity officers, providing assistance and support if required.


I feel that my attendance at various JLD events over the last couple of years has provided me with an insight into the hard work, dedication and planning that goes into what the committee achieve at each of their events. My experience of the current committee members presents a picture of a warm and welcoming team, which is one that I would welcome the opportunity to join and work alongside.
