Schoolboy becomes boss of recruitment group

Schoolboy becomes boss of recruitment group

A ten-year-old schoolboy from Nantwich has swapped the classroom for the boardroom to run a group of recruitment companies based in Crewe.
 
Dominic Marshall took charge of Absolute Recruitment for a day to oversee the running of the company, which manages nearly 500 permanent and temporary placements each week in areas such as logistics, agriculture, administration, catering, finance and manufacturing across the UK.
 
He took the hotseat of his parents’ firm as part of its 10th birthday celebrations and quickly made himself at home, letting the 12-strong team know exactly what he expected from them during the day, including mum and dad Jessica and Dan Marshall.
 
The pupil from Wistaston Church Lane Primary School was itching to say “you’re fired” just like BBC TV’s The Apprentice star Lord Sugar, but thankfully nobody was sent home.
 
“It was great fun and I’d love to do it again,” said Dominic. “I loved the authority and having my mum and dad doing jobs for me.
 
“I’m not sure I could do it all the time as I’d miss all my friends at school.”
 
Dominic becoming the boss for a day was part of the firm’s birthday celebrations, which include 10 events over 10 days. Other activities that the company has planned include playing office 10 pin bowling, a visit from players at Crewe Alexandra and honouring 10 members of its temporary workforce.
 
Jessica said that Dominic was born just weeks before the business was established in 2002 and it seemed fitting that he should take the helm of the company as part of the celebrations.
 
“Dominic was born into the trade and his debut as the head of Absolute Recruitment was an impressive one,” said Jessica.
 
“He did a brilliant job on the day, keeping tabs on how the team were getting on with interviewing candidates, assessing CVs, filling vacancies and advertising the positions we have available.”
 
“Based on his performance, Dominic has a great future ahead of him in recruitment and our business will be in safe hands.”
