Working together after studying together

Home » Working together after studying together


Since meeting on a nesma course in 2014, Charlie Grabham, operations director at Solutions Recruitment, and Aimee Muirhead, marketing director at Narrative Integrated Communications, have continued to develop their professional relationship, creating a partnership between their two businesses.

Having studied together for a DMI Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing at the nesma study centre in Gosforth, Aimee and the team at Narrative are now working to provide PR and digital marketing support for Charlie and Solutions Recruitment.

Aimee explains:

“Not only was nesma a convenient highly recommended place to study, it was a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded individuals working in the industry who were students there too. I’ve kept in touch with several of the people on my course and it’s great to be working with Charlie more closely, using the knowledge we gained after we met doing our DMI course a few years ago, to build a partnership between our employers.

“We now work alongside Charlie to maximise on promotion for Solutions Recruitment, creating engaging content for the organisation’s website and social media pages, sharing company news with regional and sector press.”

Charlie added:

“It’s great to be working together using the knowledge we gained after we met on the DMI course. The digital qualification has been extremely valuable and I would recommend it to anyone – not just for the thorough understanding I gained in search engines and analytics, but for the connections I made, which have proved to be extremely beneficial.”
