Our 2015 Highlights

06 January 2016

2015 was a momentous year for Gradsouthwest with the management buy-out of the service in June 2015 ensuring the continuation of this well respected service for graduates and employers.  Initially founded in 2001 by SW 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.

Over the summer of 2015 we launched this blog to enable us to share our experience with both graduates looking for jobs and employers wanting to recruit.  We hope you find it useful.  Our most popular post was “Why graduate training schemes are seen as the gold standard. And why you should re-think.”  Click on the link to read it if you missed it first time.

September 2015 saw the redevelopment of the platform meaning that our tried and tested service to match great graduates with great jobs got better:

Better for candidates
Great jobs for recent graduates plus:
– Job browsing open to all
– Use social media to register
Upload your CV to get in front of recruiters
– Apply online with one-click applications
– Manage your applications online

Better for recruiters
Unlimited access to graduate talent plus:
– Higher visibility for your vacancy
– More candidates
– New CV database – browse before you buy
– Alerts when new talent registers
– Streamlined Post a Job and payment options

Our closely targeted approach focuses on quality and relevance – and it works!  On average each vacancy receives 6 quality applications.
