David Rowlands Platform Resourcing

David Rowlands – Managing Director & Founder

David started his working within website sales within the leisure sector across the UK. Although this gave David his first taste of managing a team of people, selling a physical product didn’t really give him what he was longing for, which was to help people. David then moved into recruitment and has since worked within a wide range of sectors. Over his during his career David has gained vital sector knowledge understanding how businesses operate and how best to support their recruitment campaigns. David set up Platform Resourcing with one thing in mind; to supply a superior level of customer service to candidates and clients. David is always keen to work with those who share his passion for people, and this is where the Platform mantra came from; ‘We find fantastic people amazing jobs and amazing companies fantastic people.  

Top Tip for Job Seekers –  In a competitive jobs market it’s important to stand out. Your CV needs to be punchy and easy to read. Drop the fancy graphics and make it stand out but still be professional. Engagement is the key, when a potential employer picks up your CV it should create an emotional connection to the job your applying for.

Top Tip for interviews – do your research on the company! Not just their website, but look for news articles and delve into the history of what they do. Also get a job spec of the role that you are applying for and read, highlight and consider how you fit into the role they are recruiting for. At the point of interview they aren’t there to catch you out, they want you to do well. 

Platform Power Fact – David is a Father of two (Lilah 11 and Jack 8). He has a passion for travel and sport especially Rugby Union and F1. Dave also loves running and walking and loves to explore. David’s proudest moment in business was being nominated for Welsh Business Start up of the year in 2020.   
Nat at Platform Resourcing

Natalie Poynton – Business Manager

Natalie spent the first few years of her working life in various Customer Service positions and administration, never quite feeling like she was used to the best of her ability. After a gap year travelling, Natalie returned to the UK temping through an agency, Natalie got on so well with the team, that they asked if she wanted to take the plunge into the world of recruitment and she have never regretted it since! After being in recruitment for 7 years, Natalie has realised how important it is to love your job and she feel lucky that she is able to still enjoy her role all of these years later. Natalie’s passion is people, and is a total people pleaser which used to be a flaw, but in recruitment, it is an essential! Natalie likes to feel confident and has a strong relationship and trust with both her candidates and clients. Some of them have become great friends and have inspired her throughout my career!

Top Tip for Job Seekers – Apply for a role that genuinely appeals to you, don’t apply for just anything online if you want to be taken seriously by the people opening your CV. Ensure you have the majority of the essential skills listed before sending your CV.

Top Tip for interviews – always accept a drink if offered, it shows confidence, shows the Interviewer you are not in a hurry to leave and gives you extra thinking time if you time your sips correctly when a question is asked!

Platform Power Fact – Nat travelled to Australia for a year. Outside of work, Nat describes herself as a social butterfly, she loves to be around my nearest and dearest, she loves her animals, holidays and anything that keeps her young!!

Top tip for job seekers
I have seen hundreds of CVs, and the ones that stand out to me are the clear and easy to read ones. You won’t want recruiters hunting through to see your achievements. Include a “key attributes” section underneath your about me to highlight your top achievements and knowledge which will support you in advancing yourself, and ask the recruiter for feedback and any suggested improvements. 
Top tip for interviews 
Remember an interview is a two way process, you have to ensure the role is right for you just as the hiring manager has to make sure you’re right for the role. Do your research, have a strong understanding of what the role entails and ask any questions on the role, the company or culture that you’d like to know before making your decision to join
Platform power fact 
Leanne is always keeping herself busy. Whether that be out socialising with friends and family, booking her next holiday or spending time with her partner and 2 cats.
