Hannah Longman joined Lawtrades back in March to head up our community team. Hailing from Liverpool, Hannah previously worked in community and event management across hospitality and tourism industries. Let’s get to know her a little better!
Can you share 2 interesting facts about yourself?
My great great Grandad was part of the team who painted the Titanic (eek). I’ve also lived in 4 different European countries (UK, Belgium, Germany, and Spain) with varying degrees of language success.
How do you spend your weekends?
I like paddleboarding, going to the beach (benefits of living in the Canary Islands - ☀️all year round!), and watching my team (Liverpool) play in the Premier League.
What is the most unconventional job you have ever had?
I once worked as an unofficial interpreter for a Spanish radio station when Barcelona traveled to Liverpool for a European Champions League Soccer game. I didn't get paid but I did receive lots of swag and it makes for a great story.
Why did you choose to join Lawtrades?
When you talk with anyone from the Lawtrades team, you see the passion for the company shine through. The opportunity to be part of something that is making such a positive impact in the legal profession was unmissable. Lawtrades has the drive, ambition, and the (amazing) team to go far which is super exciting.
What are your primary responsibilities?
I am responsible for building our community of legal professionals and organizing an educational and interactive events calendar.
What are you most looking forward to in this position?
I love getting to know our GC's and talent network - such a lovely bunch of people and being part of something that is making a difference in our industry.
Where can you help the most in this position?
By understanding what our community wants and making sure that we can offer events and content that keep us top of mind!
