The cream of the North West’s business graduates are being sought by Daisy
Due to recent expansions, Lancashire-based Daisy has reintroduced its successful graduate management scheme for bright young talent, fresh from university.
Daisy’s two-year scheme gives graduates the opportunity to spend a three month period working within each department, starting with a front line role and moving on to more managerial roles.
Stefni Oliver, Operations Director said: “There has never been a better time to join Daisy. The past few months have seen major changes within the company which floated on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) back in July this year.
“The lucky individuals who join us on the graduate management programme will be working alongside some of the best business brains in the North West and as the company continues to go from strength to strength the trainees can sure of a bright future.
“We are proud to be bucking the trend of economic doom and gloom by offering career opportunities to young professionals who may be finding it hard to gain employment at a time when many businesses are cutting back.
“It is our intention to roll out this programme year on year in a bid to capture some of the best young talent in the area and keep it here.”
Katy Haigh started at daisy as a graduate management trainee back in 2003 and is one of the company’s best success stories.
Daisy has enjoyed much success in recent years. Growing to be a £20m turnover company in its fourth year of trading, it was named the fastest growing technology company by the Sunday Times in its Tech Track in 2005. And in 2007 CEO Riley was named Bank of Scotland Corporate Entrepreneur of the Year, winning £5m for the business.
It was following this award success in 2007 that daisy founder Matthew Riley was introduced to and mentored by businessman Sir Philip Green, and that relationship played a key role in the company’s flotation.
The newly combined business will be a strong SME player in the UK telecoms market, with Daisy Group PLC being a leading provider of integrated voice and data services to the communications market.
