“I finally felt that I was on the right path when I started receiving invitations to interviews. Then I got a call from Pitman Training telling me that they had been approached by a Legal Conveyancing firm looking for an Administrator’s position within their legal department and asked me if I was happy for them to recommend me for the job. That was on a Tuesday and I started working the following Monday.” - Barbara
