Speed of Delivery

Since 1997 we have been trusted by recruiters large and small to successfully project mange recruitment campaigns with a fast turnaround. Most of our projects are time critical and our business model is perfectly aligned to our client’s timelines.

Specialist Expertise

In over 20 years, our team of super-recruiters have become experts in the following industry sectors; IT, Finance, Banking, Marketing, Engineering, Consultancy, Operations, Analytical, PR, Market Research, Logistics, Sales, Recruitment, Retail and FMCG. When coupled with insights into student behaviour, attitudes and trends the results are extremely well executed recruitment campaigns for our clients.

Cost Effective

The true cost of a bad hire can be well over £30,000. GRB reduces this risk. Our candidates have the potential to transform your business meaning you get a fantastic return on investment for a relatively low outlay.

Quality Service

With great trust comes great responsibility and we make every effort to represent your company in a professional manner acting as a go between. We strongly encourage regular and honest communication with your account manager as we constantly push the benchmark higher every year. In addition, we can help with writing job ads, provide the latest market insights and help with salary bench-marking.

Talent Pool

The secret ingredient. The students and graduates on our CV Talent Pool represent the best in class the UK has to offer. We attract candidates predominantly from Russell Group Universities studying Science, Computing, Engineering, Maths, Business, Economics, Humanities and many more. To demonstrate this we profile some of our hand-picked candidates on our Rising Stars page. It’s hard to compare with other talent pools but our clients consistently commend us on the quality of the candidates we introduce compared to other suppliers.

Brand Exposure

Our in house marketing team partner with over 40 Universities exhibiting at Fresher Fairs, Career Fairs and other national recruitment events. Our popular website attracts 100,000 unique visits a month. Our reach through social media is unmatched with an industry leading Klout score – in other words we have influence with a very active and engaged social community of over 60,000 job seekers. We advertise and use the CV databases of carefully selected third party job sites for maximum exposure to reach all corners of the market. Last, but not least we have a team of student talent scouts referring students they think stand out in their peer group. Last year they referred over 20,000 candidates giving our clients unrivalled access before these students even entered the job market.

Technology

We call our candidate search engine TIGER which has been developed, improved and fine-tuned since 1997. We designed it from scratch so it gives our consultants rapid and accurate access to the best candidates from over 700,000 on our CV Talent Pool. Other agencies may use off the shelf packages but we decided to build our own and it has proven to be a cornerstone of our success in delivering talent fast.

Your Professional Development

All GRB clients are invited to join the Graduate Recruiters Network or GRN, an exclusive membership group established in 2009 allowing in house, graduate recruiters to share best practice and network with their peers. You will have the opportunity to attend up to four invitation-only, breakfast events in London each year. Previous speakers have included Heads of University Careers Services, thought leaders, practitioners and specialist researchers who give our members an edge in the competitive world of graduate recruitment. We currently have over 1,700 members.
