WORCESTERSHIRE technology company Postcode Anywhere’s inaugural graduate day at Worcester Rugby Club was a great success.

Twenty-two candidates attended the event including graduates from Aston, Birmingham, Keele and Worcester universities. Although many of the graduates studied for degrees at universities throughout the West Midlands, most of them live and were educated in Worcestershire.

Adam Laidler, of the People Expert who ran the day, said: “The event was not just about putting the candidates through their paces. It was more focussed on providing an insight into the culture of Postcode Anywhere to see if they possessed the right attitudes and mind-set to fit in.”

Councillor Marc Baylis, deputy leader of Worcester City Council and the cabinet member with responsibility for economic prosperity, said: “It’s very encouraging for us as a city to hear that there are businesses thriving and expanding against the backdrop of a difficult economic climate.

“Many graduates are naturally feeling a little daunted by the lack of opportunities available to them currently and this event, apart from being very enjoyable and informative, sent out some very positive and motivating messages to the delegates who attended.”
