Liverpool based Volcanic, the UK’s leading supplier of specialist recruitment websites and job boards, recruits University of Lancaster English Literature with Creative writing graduate Joe Crawford as a Marketing Executive.

Volcanic is the UK’s leading supplier of specialist recruitment websites and job boards. With offices in Stockport and Central London they have recently expanded into Liverpool with a new office in the Liverpool Science Park. Looking to take advantage of the vibrant creative digital scene and skills within the city region, they needed to recruit a number of people to support their rapid growth.


Matt Comber, Head of Client Services, sought support from the local Universities in finding the latest emerging talent as Volcanic has always looked to utilise the up to date skills that students and graduates possess. He soon found Graduate to Merseyside online and spoke to Stefan Melgaard about Volcanic’s expansion and subsequent requirements.


Matt was keen to find somebody enthused by social media with a complete focus on growth, able to build unique creative, informative content and distribute it to a defined audience. In essence the role required quality over quantity, producing evergreen content that lasts. Stefan immediately went about sourcing appropriate candidates through his various channels and within a fortnight was able to source a number of suitable candidates for Matt to speak to.


From the interviews Joe Crawford, a University of Lancaster English Literature with Creative Writing graduate with experience working as a Journalist/Sales, Creative Producer, Social Media Manager and SEO/Content writer, impressed Matt so much with his eye for creative content that he offered him a position straight away!


Joe has been with Volcanic for over a month now and has made significant improvement to the company’s Social Media channels and Blog content. His duties have also included branching out Volcanic’s PR reach, organising their London office launch party, and building relationships with recruitment experts.


So impressed by the quality of the graduates available, Matt also recruited a further Marketing Executive, Raveen Panesar, who starts full time after her Marketing Masters finishes this Summer!


Matt is ecstatic with the personal and professional service from Graduate to Merseyside and Joe’s impact within the company:


“Joe jumped straight into the deep end in his first week, and has worked hard swimming with the pros. His potential was never going to be reached in his last job, and it’s thanks to the tenacity of Graduate to Merseyside that he is finally able to expand with Volcanic.”


Joe is enjoying his new role and is thankful to Graduate to Merseyside for their support:


“When I got the call from Stefan, I knew I could trust his judgement. I have relied heavily on Graduate to Merseyside since I graduated, and I have them to thank for the quality of my CV ever since I registered. Liverpool is booming, and new graduates need GTM more than ever!”


If, like Volcanic, your company is growing and is looking to take advantage of the latest skills the region’s graduates have to offer, why not contact Graduate to Merseyside today.
