Former City lawyer-turned legal journalist-turned careers consultant and legal coach
Husnara Begum trained and qualified as a corporate lawyer at Linklaters. She left practice to pursue a career as a journalist and secured a role on The Lawyer magazine. During her lengthy tenure at the leading weekly title Husnara focused on writing careers-related content before eventually moving into legal recruitment. She set up her own consultancy in early 2013, initially focusing on recruitment and business skills training before extending her activities into career coaching.
In June 2020, Husnara teamed up with her brother, a City banker, to launch a careers and lifestyle website for business professionals. Husnara’s unusual blend of legal practice, journalism and fee earner recruitment has gifted her with insight into how lawyers think and operate.
