Hiring A Graduate

BRINGING A GRADUATE INTO YOUR BUSINESS

Hiring a Graduate can be a challenging process. You’re competing for engaged, intelligent candidates and it can be a time-intensive process to attract, source and train them into the business. As a strong Graduate grows and develops however, the investment can pay real dividends. 

Potential Graduate positions expand beyond secretarial or PA responsibilities. For example, we’ve had great success placing Graduates into researcher roles, marketing assistant positions, as well as a number of junior executive placements across professional services firms. 

THE GRADUATE RECRUITMENT PROCESS

It’s essential to be flexible and adaptable to the evolving ambitions of young Graduates. For this reason we’ll work closely with you to develop innovative advertising strategies and tailored recruitment processes, all designed to gain maximum results. 

Post phone screen we’ll conduct face-to-face interviews, posing highly targeted questions in line with the behaviours expected of the candidate. We’ll have also developed a number of situational, technical, critical thinking and general questions to paint as complete a picture as possible of your new employee. 

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A TYPICAL GRADUATE CANDIDATE

The skillset of a Graduate will of course depend on the available role. However ideally every successful Graduate will possess a few key character traits, namely enthusiasm, motivation and ambition. 

We will equally be looking for core qualities that are likely to work well within your company culture. Will they grow to be great future leaders? Are they likely to respond well to the style of your training programs? We’ll find out the answers and more throughout our rigorous assessment process.
