Shortlisted - CEO of the Year and Employer of the Year

McEwan Fraser Legal are delighted to announce that they were shortlisted for not one, but two, awards at the Scottish Business Awards. We were contenders for CEO of the Year and Employer of the Year, competing against some of Scotland most successful companies including Skyscanner, BrewDog and Barrhead Travel. This award recognises Scotland’s outstanding employers which have created jobs and great working environments in which employees can thrive and achieve excellence.

The award ceremony itself took place on Thursday 12th November at the Edinburgh EICC. The impressive venue was filled with over 2100 attendees, the largest dinner in Scottish history, something we very much enjoyed being part of. Our table was positioned right in front of the stage meaning we had front row seats for Oscar-winning actor, director and humanitarian, George Clooney who was the keynote speaker, as well as Sir Chris Hoy and Chris Evans.

This annual award gathers together Scottish businesses from every sector to celebrate and share individual successes – great opportunity to not only complete with Scotland’s best, but also to networking with them!

The event of course was all in aid of charity and a staggering £500,000 was raised for charities including the Social Bite Fund and human rights organisation Not On Our Watch.

Although we did not win either award on the night we are still incredibly proud to have been shortlisted, and what a fantastic night!

Training just the job to build skills

Every Thursday DGM Training Consultants places an advert for staff in the Evening News and gets an immediate response.

"We get at least five or six calls every Thursday and Friday as the result of a relatively small ad," says company recruitment and marketing officer Veronica McNeill.

"Our business is about connecting employers who have current office junior vacancies to suitable young adults. Once successful in finding employment, we then work with the employee to support them through the a Scottish vocational qualification.

"It's a system which works extremely well for us' says Veronica. DGM Training Consultants has more than 20 years experience in the training industry and is accredited to deliver vocational qualifications in management, business administration, customer services and providing financial services. When someone responds to the ad, I'll have a chat with them about qualifications and experience before arranging a short interview here at the office and hopefully placing them in work.

"We have a good working partnership with Skills Development Scotland and are able to offer funded training to employees aged 16 to 19. We have also recently been successful in securing funded places for adults aged 20-plus for management and providing financial services and 20 to 24-year olds in business admin and customer service."

One of the firms DGM helps is McEwan Fraser Legal. "We have found DGM Training to be very professional in aiding us with recruitment and training of our young apprentices, which has indeed resulted in the Scottish minister for employment visiting us," says Karen Dodds of the firm.

Modern apprenticeships (MA) encourages learning and provides an alternative way to gain a qualification. They are an efficient method of training as all qualifications are workbased and assessed in the workplace. The employee produces a portfolio of evidence providing proof of good practice in work situations. They are required to demonstrate their skills, knowledge and behaviour in a variety of different areas. DGM assesses the evidence against a set of national standards of competence.

So, where does this all lead and who benefits? Well, the employee gains an MA qualification, which is nationally recognised, increasing their confidence and career prospects. The employer gains a valuable member of staff who not only knows what to do in the workplace, but has a sound underlying knowledge and understanding of the business, funded through SDS.

"It's a fantastic job watching young adults grow in confidence and become a valuable asset to their employers. We also see many of the people who come to us following a natural progression," says Veronica.

"The business administration MA level 2 is a good example of this where people working in junior administrative roles develop their skills in IT Systems, office equipment, working with colleagues and customers and often then move on to the business administration level 3 qualification. This is aimed more at experienced employees in administration and secretarial positions.

"Our providing financial services qualifications are suitable for people working in a financial services environment who require technical, core and cross-sector competences.

"The companies we deal with can vary from a small legal office or medical practice up to larger organisations such as McEwan Fraser Legal and Standard Life," says Veronica. "Our adverts in the Evening News reach an equally wide range of people and what we aim to provide is the same thorough training and valuable experience through the MZ programme, which benefits everyone involved."

Skills Development Scotland

Launching the Awards, Minister for Learning and Skills Alasdair Allan said: "Every young person deserves the best chance and the right choice for them. A modern apprenticeship today is very different to the modern apprenticeship of the past. It is just one of the many routes for 16 to 25 year olds to continue their learning and skills development to prepare themselves for the industries of the future.

"These awards recognise the impact that the Modern Apprenticeship programme has, both on the life chances of the individual apprentice and the positive contribution to their employer and the wider economy. I am therefore delighted to launch these awards and look forward to hearing all about the contenders in the weeks and months ahead."

The Awards celebrate the significant contribution apprentices, employers and partners have made to the development of the Modern Apprenticeship programme and Scotland's economy.

One such company is Edinburgh legal property firm McEwan Fraser who took on two apprentices in 2010 and recently took on two more. Practice manager Karen Dodds is clear about the benefits the apprentices have brought their fast-growing business. "We have invested in them and their training and are delighted with their contribution to our company." she said.

Karen urged more employers to open their doors to people and offer apprenticeships. "We did and we have been delighted with the hard work and commitment of this group of apprentices," she said.

The 2011 Award categories have been revised to reflect the changing face of apprenticeships and now include young construction and production apprentice of the year, young service apprentice of the year, adult apprentice of the year, and advanced apprentice of the year.

Employer awards include categories for businesses with fewer than 50 workers, for companies with up to 250 and over 250 employees. There is a partnership award for groups who can show their commitment to apprentices.

A new Best Business Newcomer award will be given to a company - from any sector - which has shown a commitment to Modern Apprentice training.

The Awards ceremony is planned for Wednesday 7 December at Glasgow Science Centre.

Edinburgh Evening News

McEwan Fraser Legal shows value of modern apprenticeships.

MSP Alasdair Allan visits

'Doing things Differently' has proved a major success for a young solicitors and estate agents firm in Edinburgh after they used the Step Forward Scotland initiative to employ four bright Edinburgh teenagers in their firm. The programme has proved so successful for the firm and the teenagers that SMP, Alasdair Allan, will be visiting them to meet and congratulate the four who now all play an important role in the success of the business.

The company wanted to give young people the chance to enter the world of work and gain new and valuable skills, while also gaining formal qualifications. The four young employees, aged between 17 and 20, all work in key areas of the business in our post production and photography department, our property department and reception. All gaining experience working with creative software, schedule layout, Home Reports and publishing, marketing, reception, administration and customer services.

The first two teenagers who joined the firm on the scheme in August last year, have now successfully completed their SVQ Level 3 in Business Administration and Young Apprenticeships. The other two teenagers are still currently on the scheme and working towards their formal qualifications and permanent appointment, later this year.

The firm, who opened its doors in the middle of a recession and a slow housing market, are changing the way people buy and sell property, having bucked the trend by its innovative and proactive approach to business. McEwan Fraser Legal is now the fastest growing solicitors and estate agents in Scotland, having taken on 28 people in the last 12 months. Ivan Ralph, Senior Partner commented "Our motto is 'Doing things Differently'. We also take this approach to our staff and giving young people the opportunity to gain experience and qualifications. They are able to input their ideas into the business and play a key role in the success of our business all fits into our company's ethos."

Step Forward Scotland is a new initiative from the Scottish Government, the European Social Fund and Skills Development Scotland that is committed to helping Scottish businesses and young people aged between 16 and 19, who are just out of school or college. McEwan Fraser Legal has worked in close partnership with the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce's Edinburgh Jobs Fund to create sustainable employment for these four young people. The Edinburgh Jobs Fund is a programme to help individuals into employment and improve their chances on the career ladder through experience and training. The programme offers paid work placements for individuals living in Edinburgh who want to work with local companies.

The young candidates were introduced to the company by training providers Recruitment Training Limited and DGM Training. "I was most impressed by the calibre of candidates the training providers put forward. The people we interviewed were well prepared - from their CV's to how they responded during their interviews which I think is due to the input of the training providers," said Mrs Karen Dodds, Practice and Business Development Manager for the firm.

The four young apprentices, Sarah Hackland (19) from Granton, Kerri Kivlin (20) from Meadowbank, Lewis Cation (17) from Corstorphine and Melissa Brown (18) also from Corstorphine all said that people in their age group find it very difficult to get a job.

"The Young Apprentice scheme has made a big impact on my life. Before I joined McEwan Fraser Legal on the scheme, I was unemployed with a HNC Business from Jewel and Esk College. Today, I am permanently employed in a successful company with experience in various aspects of a solicitors and estate agency practice. I now also hold a SVQ Level 3 in Business Administration," said Kerri Kivlin.

McEwan Fraser Legal proudly supporting Children's Hospice Association Scotland

Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) is a charity that provides the only hospice services in Scotland for children and young people with
life-shortening conditions.

CHAS offers care in two children’s hospices, Rachel House in Kinross and Robin House in Balloch. The hospices support the whole family by offering short planned breaks, emergency support, end of life care and a range of bereavement services.

CHAS also provides a home care service, called CHAS at Home, staffed from both hospices and with dedicated teams based in Aberdeen and Inverness. The service offers care to families in their own homes when they need it most.

CHAS supports over 300 families, as well as a significant number of families who receive bereavement support. The services are funded mainly through the generosity of the many supporters who help raise £9 million needed each year to provide these vital hospice services.

McEwan Fraser Legal sponsors Equestrian Team

Following their recent showjumping success at Kingsbarn Equestrian Centre, St.Columba's is delighted to have been sponsored by MFL.

The competition, in which the team finished an impressive second, was a qualifier for the NSEA Championships, held each winter at Addington Manor Equestrian Centre in Buckinghamshire.

The qualified team consisted of the captain Jessica Lee, Niamh Allen, Molly Bower and Olivia Finch. These girls in addition to the other competitors (Emma Findley, Kirsten Findley, Amy Gillespie and Anna Galloway) who have all represented St.Columba's, received personalised hoodies from Darren Lee (Regional Manager) from MFL. These will be worn to ALL school competitions and training sessions, which are held regularly at Ingliston Equestrian Centre in Bishopton, Renfrewshire.

The NSEA (National Schools Equestrian Association) championships are a prestigious event that all British schools are eligible for. The event at Kingsbarn was the only Scottish qualifier, meaning competitors travelled from all over the country, clearly demonstrating the ability of the school team.
