Keen to expand his IT interests, Liam has now 'mapped out a role for himself' according to the firm, which supplies high-tech equipment to the metal industry.
Liam undertook a frustrating two-year job search after leaving school. Despite embarking on an IT apprenticeship and successfully adding several computing qualifications to his list of achievements his confidence was knocked when, on most occasions, he failed to get a response to at least 20 job applications a week.
However with help from Ingeus he created an impressive CV, directed his efforts at IT roles and was recommended to Spectrographic, a small company looking for somebody to take on administrative duties, but who could also grasp the technical complexities of the business. Nearly two years on and Liam now helps to set up and demonstrate the company's specialist equipment and deals with customers' queries, as well as the all-important admin work.
"It's very rare that I do the same thing each day," says Liam, who has recently been able to buy his first car. "We're a small team so we all pitch in and I get the chance to do a bit of everything. It's great, I've learnt so much and really enjoy the technical side of things."
Nicci Chippendale runs Spectrographic and was so impressed with Ingeus clients after Liam's appointment that she returned to recruit a further member of the team three months later.
"Liam was a really good find, he picks things up very quickly and is keen to try new tasks," said Nicci. "He deals directly with customers now and is getting more and more skilled with the technical aspects of what we do.
"Liam's carved out a unique role, he's really made himself invaluable and it's thanks to Ingeus that we found two such talented, reliable members of the team."
