Paul's Story - “Securing work before I moved was my main priority”

Paul’s experience lay within transport, logistics & driver management as he had over 13 years experience as a Senior Transport planner in Dumfries, Scotland. Paul got in touch with Riada applying for a Transport Planner job based in Maghera.

Paul’s wife was originally from Ballymena and was wanting to be closer to her hometown. Paul was keen to secure employment in Northern Ireland specifying that time was of the essence with the family intending to move in 2-3 weeks time. With no local professional network, he needed Riada’s network and expertise to find the right position for him that matched his expectations. Riada’s strong relationships with local companies, industry specific knowledge and growing network of business across Northern Ireland was able to deliver.

Paul had a window of 5 days when he was in Northern Ireland and available for interview. Riada was able to secure him an interview for a Transport Planner role. The team are delighted that Paul did extremely well in the interview and secured employment with a leading transport & trucking client just over 2 weeks after he got in touch with our team. His family have since completed a move at the end of August 2018, where they have bought a house and are settling in well to life in Northern Ireland.

“Thanks to Gary & the rest of the Riada team. I am delighted! Time has moved so fast but securing work was my main priority before I came across from Scotland and to find a job like this is a bonus! Thanks again for everything and hopefully hear from you soon."

Regards, Paul.
