There are a variety of options for new graduates, including:

We also provide a Recruiter Directory of those employers who have previously recruited with us - to give you an idea of the types of companies in the region recruiting graduates.

Graduate Recruitment Schemes - Take a look at our guide to graduate schemes and our FREE graduate scheme Directory for a list of options here in South West England.

Internships / Placements - Graduate internships and placements have become increasingly popular in recent years. When well-planned and supported, they are a great way to:
  • Get hands on experience
  • Apply and develop a range of skills
  • Try out different career options
  • Build skills, experience and employability
  • Assume real responsibility in the workplace

We advertise lots of paid internships here on Gradsouthwest. You'll find them listed alongside our graduate jobs. In addition, there are a number of graduate internship and placement schemes operating through universities and other bodies. In the south west, we recommend:

  • Cornwall College's Unlocking Potential Programme
  • University of Exeter's Graduate Business Partnership (GBP) Programme
  • University of Gloucestershire Graduate Challenge
Internships have been hotly debated in recent times. We believe that graduate talent should be valued and that you should be paid for the work you do. This is why we only advertise internships that are paid at national minimum wage or more.
