Derek – January 2012

Derek – Dedicated, Determined and Down Right Charming Although Derek’s CV depicts 36 years of experience as an aircraft engineer, during registration he made it clear that he would consider any type of work, temporary or permanent. We were able to test Derek’s determination and placed him with a client in the food industry, a role completely outside of anything he would have ever experienced in his career. Testimony to Derek’s attitude, flexibility and reliability, we were delighted to inform him recently that our client wished to make him a permanent member of their team. Thank you Derek, you really did mean it when you said – offer me any type of assignment so that I can earn a wage!

About the author

I look after the marketing for Octopus – from the job adverts you see to the events we put on throughout the year.

I love being in the middle of the office, soaking up the lively dynamic atmosphere. The team at Octopus really care about our job searchers and clients and do everything they can to understand everyone’s needs and make intelligent and productive job matches. Their drive and fun loving spirit inspire me every day!
