As part of our commitment to the next generation of legal and IT talent, we have joined the Liverpool Youth Contract. The Youth Contract, an apprenticeship scheme organised by Liverpool City Council and NowSkills, offers young people on Merseyside, aged 16 and 17, who are not already in employment, education or training a chance to gain valuable experience in the workplace.
We’ll be taking on a new apprentice next month, but our membership of the scheme has already brought benefits to one staff member at our Liverpool City Centre offices. Adam Hill, one of our archiving clerks, has taken advantage of an apprenticeship position within our IT department and is now broadening his IT skills and furthering his career here at Canter Levin & Berg.
Speaking about the firm’s decision to join the Liverpool Youth Contract, Canter Levin & Berg’s HR Officer, Hayley Roberts said:
“The apprenticeship scheme is yet another example of our commitment to the talented young people here on Merseyside and to provide them with opportunities for learning within the environment of a successful law firm, such as ourselves.
The apprentices we take on will be given challenging and rewarding tasks within the business, giving them an excellent chance to gain new skills. It is also worth pointing at that, as part of the Liverpool Youth Contract, any apprentices we take on will be paid at well above the National Minimum wage for apprentices.
Membership of the Liverpool Youth Contract complements our status as an Investor in People, and I am looking forward to welcoming our latest apprentice within the next few weeks.”
