We’re are thrilled to welcome Matt Sellars to the team on a full-time basis in the role of Lead Developer.
Matt, who graduated from the University of Derby this year, joined Xposure in February as part of the Mansfield District Council ‘Graduates into Enterprise’ scheme which links recent graduates from Ashfield and Mansfield with local employers to undertake a fixed term placement. Funded by the European Regional Development Fund, the placements are available in a range of business sectors such as marketing, human resources and web design.
Following the completion of his placement, Matt had impressed Managing Director Nigel Lamb, leading Nigel to offer Matt a permanent full-time role on the team.
Managing Director of Xposure Nigel Lamb says: “The scheme was perfect for helping our business grow. We got a young, talented individual, and the grant gave us time to integrate Matt into the business and train him on becoming a real asset to the company”.
Matt would also recommend the programme: “Having completed a six-month placement at Xposure, I was delighted to be offered a permanent role as a Website Developer. This council run scheme is a great idea for graduates and businesses alike – giving graduates the crucial training and experience, but also giving the business an up-to-date knowledge base on an area of expertise” said Matt.
Cllr Kate Allsop, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration at Mansfield District Council said: “I’m delighted that Xposure have decided to offer Matt permanent employment as a result of ‘Graduates into Enterprise’. This is a great example of how successful graduate placements can be for both parties”.
Xposure is a Mansfield based company providing local b2b’s with a personal and expert marketing service. With an in-house team of designers, branding experts, digital marketers, public relations professionals and copywriters, Xposure are looking to continue their growth further with the addition of another graduate on placement.
“We are always looking to improve our service with technological developments and new ideas, we believe the addition of new graduates is integral for us to maintain our high standard. We now have another excellent employee on the team, and we’re looking for another one!” added Nigel.
