Matt Roche (Business & Marketing Studies, 2007)

Matt studied Marketing and graduated in 2007. He thoroughly enjoyed his experience at the university. Indeed it was his interest in marketing that led him to work in the online field.

"I found that the course structure and facilities at Leeds Met allowed me to develop in the way I wanted at all times and although I never really saw university as vitally important in grand scheme of employment, I do think that the experience I had has helped me incredibly both on a business and personal level."

Matt is now the co-owner of ICS-digital LLP. The company was formed in 2009 and is co-owned by Independent Content Services Ltd. The business now employs a large number of UK and international staff; many of whom have been supplied directly from the Leeds Met Job Shop.

While studying he used the Job Shop on many occasions to find part-time work whenever possible. “Unlike a standard recruitment company, the Leeds Met approach is not to just place people anywhere they can to make money, but more to find the right jobs for the students so that both employer and student gets value"
