DAC Beachcroft rolls out apprenticeships to school leavers

After a successful pilot apprenticeship scheme, DAC Beachcroft is recruiting two legal apprentices for its Real Estate team, increasing the total number of legal apprentices at the firm to seven.

Five apprentices were taken on in September in the Claims Solutions business, and the Corporate Recovery and Insolvency team.

The two new vacancies are in Bristol and Leeds, and the firm is looking for school leaver candidates who have 280 UCAS points at A Level or equivalent to become legal apprentices on the property pathway of the Advanced Apprenticeship in Legal Services. The recruitment is being handled by Vision Apprentices while the knowledge and skills training will be delivered by CILEx Law School.

Therese Tyson, Diversity and Learning HR Manager at DAC Beachcroft, said: “We have been delighted with how easily the legal apprentices have fitted into the organisation and can see that they will be a valuable asset in the Real Estate department too.”

Morag Joyce, a Partner in the Real Estate team said: “Recruiting apprentices into the Real Estate team is an exciting development for us and I’m very pleased to see the fruition of the work DAC Beachcroft contributed to developing the legal apprenticeship route.The Real Estate apprentices will learn quickly how to work on live legal matters. Their training will be carefully planned and they will work in a supportive team environment, actively contributing to the DAC Beachcroft business.”
