Thank you to all the companies we’ve worked with in 2013!


Well it has been a busy year for the Graduate to Merseyside team, launching a brand new website and jobs board, hosting 2 successful events at the Liverpool Innovation Park, sponsoring the Sefton Economic Forum and just recently placing our 400th graduate! With the local economy growing we are fortunate to have worked with some amazing companies across Merseyside and have recruited graduates for some really interesting roles.

Working across Merseyside…


In Liverpool we have helped a large number of companies including sourcing: IT related graduates for
Diamond Apple, Glow New Media and Draw & Code, marketing and administrative support for companies such as YOMA, Wilson Henry Accountants and Quantum of Value as well as other varied roles for Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, Brand Choice and Brainboxes.

Across the Wirral we’ve recruited for companies such as Adviser Plus (HR), Sovex (Marketing with Language skills), Livepoint UK (IT), LT Print Group (Graphic Design) and Salons Direct (Social Media).

With close links with St. Helens Chamber, we have helped companies such as Rainford Precision, Knauf Insulation, Lockie and Chalon Components with engineering, marketing and IT positions.

Having sponsored the Sefton Economic Forum this year, we have also helped a number of Sefton based companies including NSJR Chartered Architects, DataCare Solutions and Castle Leisure.

Finally, in Knowsley we have assisted a number of companies including Cybertill, Liberty Gas Group and are currently helping Expert Site Assist again for another trainee engineer role.

Developing long term relationships...

One of the main strengths of the Graduate to Merseyside service is the personalised expert service that companies receive. This professional attitude has led to companies coming back to us for their recruitment needs. Such companies include Goldsmith Williams Solicitors and Verus Law Costs LLP who have recruited 5 graduates each in 2013! Rayware Group have also recruited a further 4 graduates in 2013 to support their Marketing and Sales activities to make up a total of 8 graduates they have recruited through us since September 2012.

Wider impact...

Whilst our specialist service is aimed at SMEs, we've also helped larger organisations find the perfect graduate. This year we have helped Unilever fill 3 specialised Chemistry related roles in their Research & Development division in Port Sunlight. We have also helped Shop Direct find a Business Modelling Analyst and Deutsche Bank recruited one of our graduates for a prestigious graduate internship in their Asset & Wealth Management division.

Once again, we would like say thank you for the all the companies that we have worked with in 2013 and wish them the best of luck for 2014.
