Local Business Teams with Bournemouth and Poole College

Mary Spinocchia, Managing Director ILC Communications

ILC Communications is an established, innovative Training, Development  & Consultancy Organisation, passionate about driving people to achieve their full potential in their prospective careers and in growing their businesses.

Their work also encompasses advice and consultancy in the area of Human Resources as well as Employment issues.

This aim, not only applies to their International corporate/Lawyer clients, who undertake a range of Commercial Legal English programmes but also to some delighted local businesses who have embarked on  Management/HR workshops, as part of a Leadership and Management Government funded incentive.

ILC Communications have recently teamed up with Bournemouth and Poole College in order to offer placements and work experience to future graduates.

In March of this year ILCC’s Managing Director, Mary Spinocchia, contacted the Bournemouth & Poole College with the intention of offering work placements to local students.

Following an initial meeting with Chrissi Kenton, at Bournemouth and Poole College, Mary Spinocchia was introduced to several candidates, who were subsequently interviewed and offered work placement within the firm.

ILC Communications recruited Katie Finn, who is pursuing a Foundation Degree in Tourism and Events Management and Mel Bulbul, who is on a Foundation Degree in Business and Management.

These courses are run at the Bournemouth and Poole College in conjunction with Bournemouth University. This is an opportunity for the students to assume dual identity and benefit from both the college facilities as well as the university facilities at both the Lansdowne and Wallisdown Campus.

ILC Communications “This has been a tremendous opportunity for us to contribute to the wider community, Mel and Katie have shown commendable dedication and professionalism to ILC Communications and we are delighted to have had them on board and to be able to offer them permanent placements, on a two day basis, while they continue with their academic careers to complete their degrees.

We would encourage every business to explore this opportunity.”

Bournemouth & Poole College commented that “The College is always looking for relevant organisations who can work with our students as we want to ensure that they have the best possible experience during their stay with us. We are delighted that ILC have been able to work with students this year on a small event project and also offer a very rewarding work placement for another student.

There are many ways organisations can work with us and including work placement, guest speaking, mentoring and running small events. Working with industry is a very valuable experience for our students as it gives them realistic, hands on view of how companies and organisations work and also gives them a valuable reference on their CV”
