BCL Legal is pleased to announce that it has appointed its first ever apprentice. Nichole Luckhurst — 18 — has joined the consultancy support administration team from college and she will now be working towards an NVQ Level Two & Three. She was recruited via the Apprentice Academy which is an organisation that delivers an apprenticeship and training development programme for office and business apprentices in Manchester.
This week, the firm has also welcomed back Victoria Moore who is returning to the BCL Legal fold after living and working in London for the past year. Victoria’s remit covers the in-house sector across the Midlands and will see her working with clients that she has supported in the past who include: Alliance Boots, National Grid and Molson Coors.
James Batt, managing director of BCL Legal, commented: “We know it’s tough for young people to get on the career ladder so working with the Apprentice Academy to find the right person to fill this role seemed like a great idea. We’re confident Nichole will be a solid asset to the team and it’s going to be exciting watching her skills set develop over the coming months.
James added: It’s also fantastic to welcome Victoria back. She’s a first class recruiter and I’m always pleased when people want to return to the firm as it show’s BCL Legal is a great place to work and we’re proud of that.”
On her new role, Nichole said: “This is my first full time role and the opportunity to be an apprentice at BCL Legal is something I’m grabbing with both hands. I’m on a steep learning curve but I’m relishing the challenge.”
