This commitment to early career development makes Milsted Langdon the perfect partner for the Somerset Education Business Partnership Awards’.
Jonathan Langdon, Co-founder and Chairman of Milsted Langdon explains further: ‘Milsted Langdon realises the benefits of providing high quality placement opportunities to young people. We are proud to support the next generation – there are many examples of colleagues who have been promoted through the ranks that have successfully developed through our placement and traineeship programmes.
