Recruiting IT or Engineering Graduates? Salary Matters!
Posted on Friday, August 3, 2018 by Gradsouthwest Team — No comments
IT and engineering graduates are in demand. Big demand. So as a recruiter, you need to work extra hard to attract them to your business.
Various studies put their average graduate starting salaries between £20 - £35K so a salary of anything less is going to make recruitment difficult - even if you're a big well known brand. For all other positions, we advise recruiters to sell their offer with training and other perks but for IT and Engineering, salary trumps all. So, take a look at other adverts and match or increase your offer. You can always start low and up the salary mid campaign if you need to - at Gradsouthwest, we understand the dilemma and are always happy to revise your advert and report on its performance.
