I am delighted to announce the formation of the new CILEx Kent Branch which will be based in Canterbury. Please contact us for a membership form and join us for the wonderful opportunities our branch has to offer!
The committee members of the new Kent Branch are the following:
Chair: Eve Dullabh (Law Training Centre)
Treasurer: Claire Blundell (Kent County Council)
Secretary: Jennifer Draper (Boys and Maughan, Margate)
Events co-ordinator: Tilly Pandya (Pocock’s Solicitors, Whitstable)
Social media officer: Richard Durrant (Boys and Maughan, Canterbury)
Marketing officer – Peter Styles (Hardmans Solicitors, Deal)
As members of the CILEx branch, you will have at your disposal a network of support that ranges from local colleagues to staff, employment and training opportunities. The branch will also provide a closer link between its members and CILEx. It will also act as a facilitator in relation to events aimed at creating networking opportunities amongst professionals. We will be having our first event at the end of February, where we will formally launch the Kent Branch, with free drinks provided.
We also intend to organise CPD events and training sessions designed to address our members’ needs. This will include additional revision sessions for those who are currently studying towards their Level 3 and Level 6 CILEx qualifications.
Last but not least, we are in the process of developing a partnership with a number of firms whereas they will inform us and the members of our branch first in relation to employment opportunities prior to advertising them. This will include any vacation or work experience placements for those who wish to enrich their CV.
If you are interested in joining the Kent Branch kindly email firstname.lastname@example.org in order to provide you with a membership form. Thank you for your support!
