Kira Reece with Peter Medd,
Cygnet Law has invested in the workforce of the future with the recruitment of an apprentice business administrator.
Kira Louise Reece, 18, (on Dec 29), who lives in Brotton, joined the Redcar-based firm after leaving Northfield School and Sports College at Billingham.
She is gaining hands-on practical experience at Cygnet Law in West Dyke Road, while also continuing her education by attending Middlesbrough College, where she is studying NVQ level 2 in business administration, on a day release basis.
Her role at the firm involves general administration support, reception duties, data inputting and collating information.
Peter Medd, a Cygnet Law Director, said: “It is important that the legal sector attracts keen, committed young people in to the profession to ensure a future generation of appropriately skilled employees.
“An apprenticeship, which bridges the gap between school and business, is an ideal way of equipping a novice member of staff, in a role such as Kira’s, with the knowledge to help keep Cygnet Law operating in an effective and efficient manner for the benefit of its clients.”
“Kira is proving to be a diligent employee and we look forward to her progressing and developing within the business as she amasses both practical and theoretical experience
Kira said: “I opted for an apprenticeship because it is the best of both worlds as you get hands-on practical experience and the benefit of qualifications at the same time.”
“I am proud to have been recruited by Cygnet, which has a reputation throughout the Tees Valley as being a leader in its field.”
