Liverpool based Inenco Direct, a rapidly growing B2B energy broker specialising in SME Energy Procurement; recruits University of Liverpool Mathematics graduate Ciaren McShane and Bagnor University Finance graduate Xinyuan Lv.
Trading since 1993, Inenco Direct has always looked to lead through innovation and quality and, as a result, has become one of the premier energy brokers in the country. With 20 years’ experience in the sector, they specialise in helping SMEs with their energy procurement.
Director Jeff Whittingham, faced with the problem of finding a graduate with the specific analytical skills needed to undertake a 6-month role, decided to enlist some support. He contacted ‘Graduate to Merseyside’ to help navigate through the challenging graduate recruitment market.
‘Graduate to Merseyside’ Project Manager, Paul Cullinan, set about sourcing graduates with the necessary skills needed by Inenco Direct. Within three weeks graduates were identified, interviews arranged and the post was filled.
Delighted with the quality of the service provided by Paul, Jeff appointed University of Liverpool Mathematics graduate, Ciaren McShane. What’s more, so impressed was Jeff with the candidates put forward, he also offered a position to Finance graduate Xinyuan Lv within the company.
Jeff lauds the service provided by Graduate to Merseyside and the impact the graduates have had:
“Both Ciaren and Xinyuan have fully integrated into the business and become permanent members of staff. We are currently in business planning mode and I’m sure we wouldn’t have got through this without the support of these two guys – the whole service has been very successful for us.”
The graduates are also extremely pleased:
“I have already recommended the service to several of my friends who are still at University. When first contacting the service Paul helped me improve my CV. I applied for four jobs with my updated CV and received an interview for each of these. The staff at ‘Graduate to Merseyside’ are very helpful and approachable should you have any issues during an application process.
“I have settled into the job at Inenco Direct very quickly, developing good relationships with the Management Team. Whenever I have a question or I am unsure about something, there is always someone there to help me. I am given a large degree of independence to carry out my work using my own initiative. I am really enjoying my role and would recommend working for Inenco Direct and ‘Graduate to Merseyside’ to all my friends!“
“It is extremely difficult for international students to find a job and Paul and “Graduate to Merseyside” are helping students to find the perfect job role for them to use their skills and knowledge.
“Inenco Direct is an extremely impressive company. I want to thank Jeff and the Management Team there for offering me such a great opportunity, despite the restrictions of my English language skills. My colleagues were very supportive in helping me get up to speed with my new job. My Managers gave me responsibility quickly, which helped me to develop and start making a useful contribution to the company straight away. I enjoy this job very much and think Inenco Direct is a great place to work.“
Inenco Direct’s experience demonstrates how much easier the recruitment process can be and the impact quality graduates can have upon a company when using the Graduate to Merseyside service. Indeed, so impressed was Jeff that Inenco Direct are currently using the service again to source more graduates for their company!
