Extracting much job satisfaction.
Ian Logan has always wanted to work his way up the career ladder, and it is thanks to a leading local recruitment consultancy that he has seen his career go from strength to strength.
Despite being made redundant in September 2001, after 20 years as a production supervisor with a worldwide manufacturer, Ian quickly found new employment after registering his CV with the Cramlington office of Westray Recruitment Consultants.
Recruitment manager Sandra Douglas instantly recognised Ian's potential and, within two weeks of him registering with Westray, put him forward for a temporary position as a quality assurance analyst at ACS Dobfar in Cambois, which specialises in the production of penicillin.
Following three successful months as a temp for Ian, a permanent position arose at the factory as a day shift co-ordinator in the extraction department, and he was delighted when he was offered the job.
He said: "I am really grateful for all of Sandra's help. She managed to place me with a leading manufacturer in a job which has taken me further than I expected.
"I never thought I would get a permanent job again, but I am delighted my skills and experience have been recognised by ACS Dobfar.
"I am looking forward to the future, which is looking a lot brighter than it did two years ago.
"When I first started looking for a recruitment consultancy in the Yellow Pages, I was delighted to find Westray had a local branch in my area.
"This was a great advantage for me as I live in North Seaton and wanted to use a consultancy with knowledge of companies in my local area, which Westray has."
Sandra said: "When Ian came to Westray I was really impressed with his experience and skills.
"I knew he would fit in well at ACS Dobfar and had no qualms about recommending him for a position there.
"I wasn't in the least bit surprised when he told me he had secured a permanent position.
"He really was an excellent candidate with the ideal skills and experience for a company like ACS Dobfar."
