Thames Valley based recruitment software developers 2LS Limited have been nominated in the Best Micro Enterprise category at the 2012 National Council for Work Experience Awards. The Reading-based business, makers of recruitment database GRIP, is one of only four Reading based companies be nominated for an award.
Offering a local student the opportunity to noticeably impact and be involved in every aspect of a company is something that only a micro business can offer says 2LS Managing Director Neil Thompson, who recalls similar experiences early in his career. I learned
a great deal from my internship, so I see this as a chance to give something back."
The student in question, 22 year old Akshay Koregaonkar, has worked for 2LS during his vacations from the University of Reading and, with Thompsons guidance, has developed an iPhone and Android based version of the applicant tracking system, named GRIP Mobile.
Thompson concludes "Helping, guiding and supporting Akshay as he develops an entirely new recruitment tool for our business has been an excellent symbiosis, as well as most personally and professionally gratifying."
