"We look for highly capable new maths/stats graduates with analytical skills, a research mindset and ambition. We can trust that our consultant and the GRB team can provide us these candidates - as they have done so often in the past. It's obvious that our consultant is very careful in selecting those candidates most suitable for us, and I value her dedication and straight talking. I really appreciate that I'm told how it is, good or bad and that's different to other recruiters I've worked with."

FTSE 250 Healthcare Firm
Following a successful graduate recruitment exercise last year, the GRB team were mobilised once again due to a last minute increase in headcount for a FTSE250 healthcare firm. Eleven top graduates were urgently required in a short time frame. Here's how GRB met this challenge against the clock.
On the 10th July our client instructed the GRB team to recruit eleven recent graduates with a 2:1 in a Science or Engineering related degree from a top 10 UK University. Successful applicants would join a two year rotational graduate management scheme joining the firm in Derby, Swindon or Manchester on 22nd September. Candidates also needed to show strong A Levels and display a strong skill set including: Strong leadership potential through extra-curricular activity, positions of responsibility and work experience Excellent communication skills. Analytical, inquisitive, problem solving individuals who are willing to challenge using innovative thinking. Flexible and adaptable To fit in with the company culture candidates needed a personality that demonstrated energy, enthusiasm, initiative and resourcefulness. It was desirable that they had fluency in a European language, particularly Italian, and a driving licence.
Once the full brief was taken, three resourcers immediately began carefully searching our candidate pool and identified 48 graduates. After telescreening by four consultants we scheduled 39 candidates over five Assessment Days with the client between 30th July to 6th August. We handled all the administration, preparation of candidates and communication throughout the process.
Following the Assessment Days eleven graduates received job offers on 10th September. We were aware candidates were having interviews with other firms and had a reserve pool of talent. We contacted all eleven candidates and had seven immediate acceptances. The remaining four informed us they had other offers and decided to decline. This presented no problem to the team who turned to the reserve talent pool and in the next seven days arranged interviews, managed communication between both parties and succeed in securing four job offers guaranteeing we met our original objective of eleven starters on September 22nd.
