Another Agent Academy success story, Ellie found herself out of sorts when she finished university in 2017. Even though she had a 2:1 in Marketing with Media and Communications from Liverpool Hope University, she felt that she lacked the skills she needed to find her dream job.
She found herself picking up gainful employment, working at the construction supplies retailer Tradepoint, but she knew that throwing bricks around wasn’t the career she dreamed of.
After hearing about the programme from a friend, Ellie applied to join Agent Academy and was one of the lucky few to be selected to join that year’s programme. She was able to utilise her degree and combine that with the real-world experience she gained at the Academy to bolster her CV and try again for that dream job.
After sitting in a number of job interviews that didn’t go as well as she hoped, Ellie’s attention to detail, determination and resilience caught the eye of Zoe, our Agent Academy director, who was delighted to offer Ellie the role of programme assistant, starting towards the end of 2018.
It goes without saying that Ellie is delighted to be working with the Academy team, and now has the chance to encourage and inspire other young people to find their dream job. In her spare time, Ellie loves expressing her creativity through drawing, and is often found at one of Liverpool’s popular bars, sampling the odd gin or two.
