Liverpool based Connect Internet Solutions, award winning web specialists, providing web design, web hosting, dedicated and shared hosting and disaster recovery; recruit Liverpool Hope University Creative Computing graduate Charlie Rourke.
Administration Manager, Beth James, works alongside a 20+ strong team of developers and technicians, and spotted a win-win opportunity following a meeting with Graduate to Merseyside. Recruiting a graduate for a three month placement would provide the company with additional support to make further progress in this highly competitive market, while giving the graduate unbeatable practical experience.
The graduate, Charlie Rourke, approached Graduate to Merseyside and was amazed by how friendly, dynamic and responsive the unique SME/graduate matching service was. Graduate to Merseyside Project Manager, Jane Forster, then matched Charlie’s skills and ambition to the role at Connect Internet Solutions.
Connect have been delighted with the start Charlie has made, having made an immediate impact by developing website project plans, managing and prioritizing tasks and liaising between clients and developers.
Beth James praises the opportunities the service provides employers and graduates:
“Charlie has come to us with a great set of fresh skills and lots of enthusiasm; exactly what we were looking for. She is able to learn and grow in the industry at the same time as providing us with an up-to-the-minute skill set that is helping us to provide an excellent service to our clients. We feel strongly that in these times, giving somebody a help on to the career ladder is more important than ever.”
Charlie is equally enthused:
“My degree involved website development and design, so working within a web company I am learning a considerable amount each day in a subject which interests me. I now have a clear idea of how the company works, the process of creating a website and what technologies are being used in the industry today.”
Charlie’s is yet another example of the numerous ways the Graduate to Merseyside service can provide a quick and flexible solution for both employers and graduates.
