Jamie Mudle has now scooped a job with British fashion label, Finery


A 25-year-old who became the face of a million pound campaign to get him a job is finally celebrating.

Jamie Mudle, of Marston Road, Clayhall, underwent an extreme career coaching programme designed by recruitment company Totaljobs, and saw his face plastered across the city on billboards.

From body language coaching to CV advice and a mock interview grilling from The Apprentice’s Claude Littner, the former pub chef was pushed to his limits.

Now he has started his new job as a customer experience assistant and office support at British fashion label, Finery.

Jamie Mudle said: “What I’ve learnt through working with totaljobs is how it’s so important to think through your application, your responses to questions, and how you present yourself in the interview and afterwards, trying to identify how you can do better next time.

“I had a very clear idea of the kind of jobs I thought would work for me and never believed I could get a role working for a fashion brand.

“Once I met the Finery team I was so impressed by their passion for the brand – their enthusiasm was infectious and I wanted to get involved.

“The most important thing for me was to find an opportunity where I could really see myself thriving and growing with the role, and my position at the Finery offers just that – as a start-up in the early stages of growth, there’s huge potential for me to get involved.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
