As a Chartered Surveyor I have been dealing with the law on a daily basis since I started working. I have my own business in the Midlands dealing with residential property and act as an expert in valuation and boundary matters.
As a project manager and subsequently a bid manager for an IT company, I became involved in negotiating the finer detail in contracts. In 2010, I was appointed as contract manager for a major elections project which was delivered in 2012. I decided that I wanted to improve my knowledge on contract law and started to look for suitable courses and a colleague who is a solicitor suggested CILEx.
I’m a Commercial Manager within a private sector listed company. A large part of my current role is around the creation, negotiation and amendment of new and existing contracts. I then work closely with our in house legal team. I’ve always had a keen interest in law and so when I was given the opportunity to expand my knowledge the CILEx route seemed like a good choice.
