Benefits of having a graduate job in London
If you are looking for graduate jobs in London, then Tiger Recruitment can help you. Many graduates leaving university do not know what career path they would like to take and it is hard knowing which graduate recruitment agencies to register with.
We help many graduates find their first job, not just in the secretarial/administrational field, but also in other graduate jobs. N.B. Climbing the ladder to become a top Personal Assistant/Executive Assistant is also a recognised career path!
There are many jobs for graduates in London and there are many advantages to starting your graduate career here.
Firstly, many of the top international companies have offices in London. They run graduate schemes on a yearly basis in an effort to secure the best talent leaving the universities. If you have missed out on the graduate schemes, then do not worry because many of these organisations will still have jobs for graduates in London that they will advertise throughout the year.
Smaller and medium sized companies are less likely to run graduate schemes and will place their graduate jobs through graduate recruitment agencies or undertake their own in-house graduate job search. If you fall into the category where you are unsure of what you would like to do long-term then the best place to start is to register with a graduate recruitment company and they can discuss graduate jobs in London, and further afield, with you.
Aside from the number of graduate opportunities in London and the experience you will pick up at the start of your career, graduate jobs in London will tend to pay better than elsewhere in the UK. This is partly because of the cost of living, but also Employers compete with each other to attract the best candidates in their graduate recruitment London campaign.
The conversion from university into a graduate job
The more prepared you are before you leave University, the easier you’re graduate job search in London will be. This is why many graduates try and secure graduate jobs in London when the larger employers do their “milk round”.
Milk round, for those that do not know, happens every 12 months and is when large organisations descend on the top universities to hire top calibre graduates for their graduate vacancies.
It is well worth finding out more about the “milk round” and which employers come to your university campus and whether their graduate jobs will be of interest to you. If not, and perhaps you are unsure about your future career at this stage, then you might start your search for graduate jobs when you finish university.
Once you have made the decision to apply for graduate jobs in London, you then have two choices: Apply to companies directly or apply to graduate jobs directly, advertised by graduate recruitment agencies or directly by employers.
You will need to keep an eye on job boards and register with a graduate recruitment company who you feel is best suited to help you in your search. Tiger Recruitment is hired by companies of all sizes to help them source top graduates for their graduate jobs in London, nationally and internationally.
