Acareer in law after factory job.

PAULA BROWN came to Pitman Training after she was made redundant from her job in a factory. Paula identified she had little computer or office skills and believed that she would struggle to re-build her career. After visiting Careers Wales for advice, she successfully applied for ReAct funding (a scheme set up by the Welsh Government with support from the European Social Fund to help individuals who are newly redundant).

Paula had always dreamt of working as a legal secretary. So Paula wanted to make the most of this opportunity and completed the Legal Secretarial Diploma.

Whilst at Pitman Training, Paula was offered some work experience within a law firm. They offered Paula a permanent secretarial position. Paula said: "Thanks to Pitman Training I now I have a whole new career."
