Candidate Success Stories

Gary — Yeovil branch

Gary had worked in the catering business for several years, but made a conscious decision to change his career path.

He was training to become an electrician but required practical experience while he was studying. Gary visited our Yoevil branch and applied for a Trainee Electrician job. However, the role wasn't suitable because of the distance Gary would have had to travel every day.

The outcome:

Instead of casting Gary aside, our recruitment experts got to work to find him a job with local companies. We talked to an organisation that was searching for an Electrician's Mate and informed them about Gary's situation. They promptly hired Gary to help him start his new career. 

Jeni — Dorchester branch

Jeni relocated to the UK from Portugal and quickly found a job at a local cafe. However, she was seeking an opportunity that made use of her Economics and Business Degree and multilingual skills. 

Our recruitment consultants were impressed with Jeni's energy and enthusiasm, and her ability to speak English, Russian and Portuguese. So, our team set about finding her a new career path. 

The outcome:

We introduced Jeni to a company in Bournemouth who were seeking 'raw talent' and a multi-lingual candidate. After passing several competency tests, they offered Jeni a place in their world-class Sales and Marketing programme. 

Tina — Yeovil branch

We Tina had worked in the hospitality and retail sectors all her working life but had taken a year out of employment to look after her children.

She wanted a part-time role in order to continue looking after her children and expected to have to work in the same industries.

The outcome:

After taking a closer look at her skills, we thought she would be ideal for a part-time lab assistant position at a local food manufacturer. Tina thought she wouldn't be suitable as the job involved mixing chemicals, sterilisation, steaming and record maintenance - tasks she had never done before.

However, after accepting the role, Tina called us after a few weeks explaining how it had been so much more interesting and rewarding than she expected.
