None of this would have been possible without McArthur Dean

Hayley Blacklett

When I started at McArthur Dean on a Traineeship, I was very self-conscious and shy. Being on the Autistic Spectrum I found new tasks difficult.  However, McArthur Dean were extremely helpful and offered lots of support and guidance. I was offered a position at Mason Baggott and Garton Solicitors in Scunthorpe in the Conveyancing Department on a Traineeship doing basic administration for 13 weeks. Over the course of the Traineeship, McArthur Dean were always on hand to support me with anything I needed and guided me through the 13 week programme. After completing the Traineeship, I was then offered a job by Mason Baggott and Garton and progressed on to an Apprenticeship in Administration Level 2, again through McArthur Dean. During this time, McArthur Dean helped me to gain knowledge of all general administration tasks and communication skills, which helped me to develop still further in my new role.

My confidence has improved tremendously since I started my time with McArthur Dean and I have much more self-belief that I can do things and have a successful career. Having completed my Apprenticeship at Mason Baggott and Garton, I am now a Trainee Legal Executive and a member of the Charted Institute of Legal Executive law school. I hope to be a fully qualified Legal Executive in the coming years. None of this would have been possible without McArthur Dean and I would not be the person I am today with the confidence I have today if it hadn’t have been for them.
