AGENCY DRP HIRES THREE GRADUATE STARTERS
Creative experience agency drp has added three more creative professionals to the team at its head office site in Hartlebury. The hires are Liam Sargent as junior designer, Dan Spivey as production assistant and Jake Healey as production assistant, all of whom join the drp team after graduating.
Sargent recently graduated from the University of Worcester with a first-class honour in graphic design and multimedia. This is his first role in his career as a designer. Sargent says, “Being an entry level/junior designer, there’s not been a limitation been set on the projects I’m able to work on and I’ve been able to expand my skillset and knowledge vastly by taking part in all areas of the design process.”
Spivey first came to drp on work experience last year. As a production assistant in the drpvideo department, Spivey will spend time out with location crews, as well as audio editing and sound engineering. During university, Spivey did work experience at Ocean Studios in Ireland.
Also joining the production in drpvideo as production assistant is Jacob Healey, who recently graduated in audio and music technology at the University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol. This is Healey’s first technical services role post-university and, as an assistant, his role involves assisting the video team on projects.
Drp is continuously expanding the team, with 187 highly specialist professionals in three UK offices. The expansion is expected to continue to grow organically during 2017, seeing further growth in all areas of the business. Within the last four years, drp has seen a staff retention of 90%.
