Stu­dents boost com­pany’s re­cruit­ment drive

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Col­lege stu­dents used their dig­i­tal know-how to cre­ate a re­cruit­ment video for one of the town’s largest em­ploy­ers.

Ash­field Health­care Com­mu­ni­ca­tions asked three stu­dents from the col­lege to help them cre­ate a video to at­tract the best tal­ent from the med­i­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tions sec­tor and ed­u­cate those out­side the in­dus­try.

Af­ter con­tact­ing the com­pany as part of a dig­i­tal com­mu­ni­ca­tions pro­ject, stu­dents worked with staff to un­der­stand the roles the com­pany re­cruits for, be­fore pre­sent­ing their ideas.

Tracey El­lis, the com­pany’s HR Re­cruiter, said: “The stu­dents had a real in­ter­est in sci­ence and brought a fresh per­spec­tive and cre­ative ideas to our re­cruit­ment drive. [The video] will pro­vide a plat­form for us to en­gage with stu­dents to raise our pro­file as a pro­gres­sive em­ployer, and to help spread the word about our ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties to younger au­di­ences, the next gen­er­a­tion of health­care com­mu­ni­ca­tions pro­fes­sion­als.”

Stu­dent Tom Wil­lis, said the ex­pe­ri­ence had been ‘in­valu­able’, adding: “Work­ing with such a pres­ti­gious com­pany will look fan­tas­tic on my CV.”
