Ceri Reilly - CEL Solicitors

Ceri is a qualified associate member of CIPD with over 6 years’ experience in managerial roles within the legal industry.

She joined CEL in 2018 managing the first response team, but shortly transitioned into a HR role. Over the last 2 years Ceri has gradually taken over all HR aspects of the firm and built her role from the ground up before becoming HR manager.

Day to day, Ceri deals with all staff management, coaching and development, employee relations and wellbeing, as well as the management of the office. Charity work is important to Ceri so she regularly organises events for the firm to take part in to raise money for great causes.

She states her proudest moment at CEL is simply working for CEL. She feels proud to work for a firm with such inspiring values, and is proud to have been a part of and seen the growth from 15 to 40+ staff and to be a part of something that’s changing people’s lives whether that be clients or career opportunities for staff.

Ceri believes a work life balance is key for a happy life so in her own time she enjoys spending time with her family and dog Hugo and loves to have a gin with girls. She has a passion for interior design and her hobbies include watching Keeping up with the Kardashians.
