The BIG Partnership

Liverpool based The BIG Partnership, one of the UK's largest public relations and digital marketing companies; recruits University of Liverpool graduates Laurance Laidler (Business Studies) and Aaron Hand (English Language).

The BIG Partnership

The University of Liverpool’s Graduate to Merseyside service has hit another major milestone, placing its 500th graduate into employment.


The BIG Partnership, one of the UK’s largest full service public relations and digital marketing companies, recruited a new account executive to its city centre office using the service. The lucky graduate was Laurence Laidler, a University of Liverpool Business Studies graduate.


So impressed with the quality of the graduates the company also offered Aaron Hand, an English Language graduate, a three-month internship.


Sharon Mars, managing director of The BIG Partnership in Liverpool, said: “Our business has grown considerably in the last few months making recruitment of high quality, ambitious employees a priority. The calibre of applicants we received through the Graduate to Merseyside service was fantastic. We set out to augment our senior team with one additional account executive and were so impressed that we subsequently decided to also offer Aaron an internship to further support his career development.”


Laurence said: “Securing work after university is a daunting task and I’m grateful for the support from Graduate to Merseyside. I feel really proud to have secured a role with one of the UK’s largest PR agencies. I have already learned and experienced a great deal about the industry in the short time I’ve been at The BIG Partnership and I’m hugely excited about my future with the company.”


Graduate to Merseyside, supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), provides a free high quality graduate recruitment service for businesses across Merseyside. It has a proven track record assisting businesses in a variety of sectors and industries filling a broad range of roles and functions. It supports graduates from the local universities as well as those returning to the region.


Steve Wood who manages Graduate to Merseyside reflects on the impact the service has had:


“Our 500th graduate placed is a result of the excellent work the team has done building this service and its reputation.  However, we don’t work in isolation and I would like to thank our partners in the business support community, specifically Invest Wirral, Knowsley Council, Liverpool City Region LEP, Liverpool Vision, St Helens Chamber and Wirral Chamber for their support. This reinforces our commitment to retaining graduate talent in the region as well as our continued support for businesses.”
