Michael Platt - Case Study
Thursday, October 15, 2015
Michael Platt from Heald Green had worked as an HR Assistant for Citation Professional Solutions in Wilmslow, and then as a Business Development Manager for Manchester based web design company Virtuoso Media. When his role was discontinued, twenty year old Michael was unemployed for a short time, and he found the experience frustrating and dispiriting.
Michael had registered with Aspire Recruitment, the award-winning, not-for-profit, ethical agency based in Manchester, which has been matching businesses to individuals for over 10 years. He was contacted by Aspire regarding an HR Administrator role at the Manchester Growth Company.
The Manchester Growth Company supports the growth and prosperity of Greater Manchester through the provision of services that will raise Manchester’s profile, attract investment, help generate new businesses, support existing businesses to grow, and provide individuals with new skills and employment opportunities.
Michael was invited in to meet with Jamie Meredith and Loren von Sternberg at Aspire, and they explained the role to him, and prepared him for the interview. Michel was delighted when he was offered the position following the interview.
Michael said: “I feel much better now that I’m in a career I want to be in, and for a company I want to work for, as I feel that I’m working towards something. I think Aspire is one of the better agencies that I’ve come across, they are fantastic at what they do.”
