After joining Henderson Loggie in 2022, Kendra Wyllie has now successfully completed her Modern Apprenticeship (MA) with our Business Recovery & Insolvency team. We sat down with her to find out more about her experience and why you might also consider joining us as a modern apprentice.
We are currently recruiting for another modern apprentice to be based in our Dundee office. You can find out more about the role and how to apply here.
What made you decide to pursue a Modern Apprenticeship?
I have always wanted to pursue a modern apprenticeship as it is a good way of learning on the job while gaining experience in a working environment. I have been able to build my knowledge and skill set and have gained a qualification without having to attend college or University. I’ve also not had to worry about studying for exams or student debts.
Could you share some highlights from your Modern Apprenticeship journey so far?
Henderson Loggie have been able to provide me with support and training which ultimately helped me complete my apprenticeship. While completing my apprenticeship I have had the opportunity to take on my own case, attend client meetings, speak with clients over the phone and organise events.
What skills have you developed throughout your Modern Apprenticeship?
Not only have I built up a basic understanding of insolvency, but I have also been able to develop many different skills, such as problem-solving, communication, teamwork, and time management. Getting the opportunity to develop these skills at an early stage in my career will be hugely beneficial for the future.
What advice would you give to someone considering a Modern Apprenticeship at Henderson Loggie?
It’s hard work, but if you are motivated, organised and looking to work in a fast-paced working environment, then a modern apprenticeship at Henderson Loggie could be a great way for you to kick-start your career.
The firm will give you plenty of support to help you progress through your apprenticeship and move on to the next chapter. Everyone here has been extremely kind and always willing to help, and I would definitely recommend working here!
What’s the best thing about working in the Business Recovery & Insolvency department?
The best thing is that no two days are the same. We have many different types of cases all of which have different backgrounds and outcomes, and it keeps you on your toes. The Business Recovery & Insolvency team are also very knowledgeable and have a lot of experience in this line of work and are always more than happy to share this with you and answer any questions that you have.
What’s next for you now that you have completed your Modern Apprenticeship?
Now that I have completed my Modern Apprenticeship, I am excited to continue working with the Business Recovery & Insolvency department as an administrator, while also completing a graduate apprenticeship in Business Management.
