Larry contacted Employability Services shortly after graduating from Bristol University with a BSc Mathematics (1stClass Honours). Despite this excellent academic achievement, Larry was seeking help with regards to gaining some work experience, in order to improve his prospects of finding paid employment.
Employability Services were successful in sourcing a placement for Larry within Morrison’s Manufacturing, where he was given the opportunity to work with senior management on a variety of projects and to spend time within many different departments of the organisation.
Larry particularly lacked confidence with regards to interviews, but with the support of Employability Services and his placement manager, Nick Fisher (People Advisor at Morrison’s and himself a former Employability participant) Larry’s confidence grew.
Larry has recently secured a permanent, full-time role as a Credit Risk Analyst with Advantage Finance Limited and he attributes his success to the interview skills training and the experience he received whilst on placement.
Amanda Thomas, Employability Services Support Officer says, “It has been a pleasure working with Larry and I am delighted that he has secured paid employment. It was very rewarding to see Larry’s confidence grow within the workplace. I wish him every success for the future!”
