Apprenticeships, Awards, young people    No Comments

It was a proud moment for us when we were recognised for our work with apprentices by winning the Apprentice Employer of the Year award last week at the Nottingham Post Business awards. We first started offering apprenticeships in 2002 and since then more than 20 people have successfully progressed through our  schemes.

 Mark Slade, our Managing Partner, said:  “This is such a proud moment for me, and for the firm as a whole. Growing our own team is part of who we are and why we continue to grow and progress as a firm. It’s not about ticking boxes or hitting targets; it’s about offering work-based learning to people who can make a difference.”

 “And make a difference they certainly do. We have people who have completed their apprenticeships and have gone on to more senior roles here at Fidler & Pepper. So, when we say this award is a team effort, we really mean it.”

Wendy Walker, our Conveyancing Operations Manager said: “We’re so proud of the amazing group of apprentices we have the pleasure to work with every single day. It’s so rewarding to watch local, young people follow a fantastic career path.”

One of our apprentices Lucy Cowe, a recent Apprentice of the Year winner, said: “An apprenticeship is perfect for me and I love working here. The award is brilliant news and well deserved.”

Recruiting, training and developing apprentices is at the heart of our ‘grow our own’ people development strategy and we are proud of the people we have working for us and how much they have developed. We will continue to support our staff and provide training opportunities as this supports our great people and makes business sense.

Apprenticeships, Awards, conveyancer, Conveyancing    No Comments

Wendy Walker is one of our inspirational employees and is often described as going above and beyond to help drive Fidler & Pepper forward. The great news is that her hard work has resulted in her being shortlisted for a prestigious award.

Wendy, who has worked at fidler & Pepper for more than 36 years, is a finalist in the Female Employee of the Year category of the Chamber East Midlands’ Enterprising Women Awards.

Whilst Wendy’s main role is to supervise our large and growing conveyancing team, she also takes a lead in day-to-day management of the firm, managing work volumes, personnel and firm wide projects.

Mark Slade – Fidler & Pepper’s Managing Partner, said: “Wendy is one of a kind. Her work ethic and dedicated approach enables the firm to reach its ambitious targets and goals. She is a wonderful role model to all of the firm, and fully deserves to be a finalist.”

The East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire) Enterprising Women awards “celebrate and showcase the successes of women in business that have taken place in the East Midlands business community over the past year”.

Corey Else, who has been at Fidler & Pepper for three years, started out as an apprentice. He said: “I really feel supported by Wendy, who helps me set a clear path of what I can do next. I’m now working towards a professional qualification as a Conveyancing Technician.”

Her colleague Sophie Wise, added: “I really enjoyed my apprenticeship and I’m now a trainee Conveyancing Assistant. I’m pleased to be progressing with the Conveyancing team and Wendy has definitely helped me to see how I can keep moving on in the future.”

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner on March 2, a date that was chosen as it is close to International Women’s Day, which is on March 8.

We’ll keep our fingers crossed and wish Wendy lots of luck on awards night!
