The Small Graduate Recruiters' club offers a series of training courses and events throughout the year to support businesses looking to take on, or improve, how they hire small numbers of graduates.
Our events are particularly useful if your business – large or small - is looking to recruit between 1 and 40 graduates per year (either into a job or onto a more structured graduate scheme) and you want to ‘DIY’ your graduate recruitment rather than pay agency fees. We offer tailored training and resources on how to find, employ and develop graduates.
"The sessions were engaging and really informative"
“Great ideas to use to support other SME businesses”
"I have come away with at least five action points for myself that will have an impact on what we do in the business."
“Good event, wish I had brought our directors who think the whole recruitment thing is easy!”
We kicked off the club in September 2017 with a small but perfectly-formed launch at The Chimney House in Sheffield, where we lifted the lid on all things graduate recruitment and retention in the Yorkshire region.
From an overview of the graduate labour market to learning and development activities you can run with all staff in your business, the sessions were based around the broad themes of graduate attraction, selection and retention, with a sprinkling of useful legal/HR information and a guide to working directly with Universities. In usual GC style, we offered plenty of helpful takeaways for attendees to use in their businesses the very next day - from salary benchmarking to recruitment and retention tips/templates.
