I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for the support of the amazing staff at Blackburn College

“I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for the support of the amazing staff at Blackburn College. The course was really engaging, and the tutors were inspiring and really helped me to achieve my goals. During the course I took part in a careers academy which opened my eyes to the possibilities that lay before me and helped me to see that there is a big world out there.

I was lucky enough to undertake an internship with RBS Bank while I was at College and that is what sparked my interest in the legal aspect of banking.

After leaving College I went to The Manchester Metropolitan University where I undertook the LLB Bachelor of Law and have gone on to study for the LPC and LLM combined Law at BPP Law School.

I have worked for Halifax as a Customer Service Advisor, during this time I was given mentorship to help my career development.

I’m now working for Lloyds Banking Group, which owns Halifax, working between Halifax and London in commercial banking as a Legal Administrator. My long-term goal is to become a senior Lawyer.”
