CQR Security

Wirral based CQR Security, a major manufacturer of fire and security products; recruits Manchester Met University Business and Public Management graduate Hayley Rooney.


Major manufacturers of fire and security products, CQR Fire and Security assemble and market an extensive range of security cables, alarm boxes, sensors and other devices from their HQ in Moreton.


Among their core business strategies has been a trail blazing approach to export, which has led to CQR gaining market share across the EU, Middle East, Asia and Australia.  This approach took shape in the early 1990s when CQR mastered the idiosyncrasies of export documentation, legislation, finance and exchange rates, and have since added a rich understanding of culture and practice in international markets. It’s this learning curve that recent graduate recruit Hayley Rooney will climb rapidly during her first 12 months in post.


Personnel Manager, Keith Smith, was delighted to find Hayley though the Graduate to Merseyside service: “We like to recruit younger people with academic backgrounds to complement our more established personnel, as it gives a new perspective on the business. The subject of their degree is less important than the transferable skills they may acquire – and in Hayley’s case we got someone with excellent presentation skills – part of the ‘X-Factor’ of international sales.”


Hayley was delighted to find a job she is relishing: “Graduate to Merseyside have found me a job that gives me responsibility and accountability, and they supported me throughout the recruitment process. They were a great intermediary and took a lot of the worry out of the process.”


Keith Smith adds: “Graduate to Merseyside provides integrity and cost-effectiveness – rare qualities in recruitment.  In Hayley they have found us someone with confidence and ambition along with an eagerness to learn. When she moves on from learning the ropes, we expect there’ll be a bright future for her in international sales.”
