Our Client Base
Our client base is unlike our competitors. We have all kinds of regular recruiters using us to find graduates. Some are the "traditional milk round" recruiters, but many are not. Here are some of the characteristics of our client base:
- Times Top 100 graduate recruiters - they tend to advertise on our website in the recruiter profile section.
- Blue chip recruiters - these companies may not be in the Times Top 100 but they recruit many graduates.
- Large recruiters - some clients simply do not advertise and prefer to use us.
- SMEs - this stands for small and medium enterprises and we literally have hundreds who use us to fill one or two roles. Often these recruiters offer high levels of involvement and responsibility and just as good salaries as larger employers.
- Ethical employers - we are exploring opportunities with employers who have an excellent corporate social responsibility (CSR) records.
- All industry sectors - we have helped recruiters from practically every industry sector imaginable which is too many to list here!
- Booming areas - Our client base reflects the economy in many ways. We navigate around sectors that are in downturn and seek opportunities in growing sectors.
- National - despite being based in the South we have helped graduates find work all over the UK.
All vacancies require a degree. Recruiters also consider other skills and competencies. Work experience is always desirable and UCAS points are still important to some recruiters but not all.
