About us

We are Gradsouthwest, the graduate jobs board for the south west.  

We value the skills graduates bring to both to employers and the wider economy. To retain graduate skills, we work with businesses, universities, colleges to showcase the fantastic career opportunities available across Cornwall, Devon, Bristol, Somerset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Dorset. 

Initially founded in 2001 by south west university careers departments, the service is now run by a small group of experienced graduates and still enjoys the support of universities in the south west peninsula.

We retain our strong campus links which enables us to match graduates with businesses quickly, simply and effectively. Over the years we've successfully recruited for thousands of companies and we pride ourselves on our excellent customer service. We always go the extra mile to find quality candidates.
