Livepoint UK

 

Livepoint UK is an elite team of professionals who help develop software solutions that deliver results. In addition to creating beautiful and highly functional websites that integrate with business systems they can also build social networks, e-commerce sites, project management tools and SaaS applications.

 

Managing Director, Adam Sykes, contacted Graduate to Merseyside looking to recruit a PHP Developer for their growing company and to assist with the numerous projects they were managing.  The successful candidate not only needed to possess specialist PHP and other technical skills but excellent communication skills for dealing with clients.

 

Project Manager, Jane Forster, was able to quickly source University of Liverpool Computer Science Masters graduate, Tom Gray, who not only had built websites using PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, HTML and CSS but also had extensive experience resolving client issues in his part-time Customer Service role. Receiving Tom’s application on Thursday, Adam interviewed him on Friday and was so impressed that he asked him to start on Monday!

 

Tom has hit the ground running and has already completed a project, building an integrated photo gallery for a local bar and restaurant.  Tom is now working with the development team on a web app to help a national food testing company manage the recruitment and involvement of their test panellists.

 

Adam couldn’t be any happier with the service he received from Graduate to Merseyside noting:

 

“It only took a couple of emails, a phone call and an interview and we had a very valuable member of our team.  We had struggled to get the right skilled employees in the past; we had tried a number of professional recruitment companies, this time it just worked.  Plus, the funding available was an added bonus.”

 

In his new role, Tom is equally delighted with the service provided by Graduate to Merseyside:

 

“The online application process was very straightforward and easy to use and opened the door for me to many local businesses I would otherwise have been unaware of. I am very pleased to have been offered the role and I am enjoying using, developing and building on the skills I have learnt during my time at University.”

 

The image of graduates being wet behind the ears is quickly becoming redundant as they now more than ever understand the requirements of the working world. As shown by Livepoint UK’s experience in recruiting Tom, graduates can not only possess technical skills from their degrees but also softer skills from work experience they have gained around their studies.

 

If you feel that your business could also benefit from a graduate please contact us.
