I founded MiddletonMurray in 2002 having spent the previous years in corporate positions. It evolved from a small Recruitment Consultancy into what is now a multi- award winning Training and Recruitment Company, with a focus on getting young people into their first job and supporting businesses to create apprenticeship programmes. With 14 offices nationally and 1 in USA; we recruit young people onto our pre-apprenticeship programme before placing them into their first job. We then deliver their apprenticeship in a variety of frameworks. We place 100's of people per month including school and college leavers, grads and professionals and our success is due to wide engagement with employers and effective careers preparation programmes. We have a particular focus on the creation of new jobs by tapping into the 'hidden jobs market' and are the largest provider of 16-18 year old Apprentices in the UK.
14th-20th May marked Mental Health Awareness Week, a cause close to my heart – and to the heart of my business, MiddletonMurray. I think it is so important to encourage a culture where we speak openly about our wellbeing all year-round.
