It’s been a lively time in the BEC offices over the past weeks as we have welcomed Liam Miller into the fold. Liam has been taking part in the Creating Careers in Cumbria scheme, which sees unemployed young people placed with local businesses in a bid to round out their skill set and improve prospects of employment.
Liam, who gradated from St Mary’s University in London with a first-class degree in theology has been struggling to find work since returning home to be closer to family in Parton.
He joined the team following four days of team building, leadership and development activities to build confidence and teach essential employment skills with the Outward Bound Trust. Liam has rotated around multiple departments to understand how BEC works and to maximize his experience – getting stuck in with finance, project management and even attending the renowned EDIE sustainability conference in Birmingham.
Creating Careers in Cumbria is led by Morgan Sindall and Copeland Borough Council.
It’s been a real joy for the team to spend time with Liam and we have been very impressed with what he has brought to the organization. Needless to say ….we were very proud at his scheme graduation on Thursday 15th November. WELL DONE LIAM.
