South West Graduate Scheme Directory

New Gradsouthwest South West Graduate Scheme Directory Published!

First published last year, and with over 200 entries, the directory highlights the great variety and choice open to graduates in a bid to retain their skills in the region.

Entries in the Directory are free of charge and the publication is widely circulated to University Careers Services and Business Support Networks.

Director of Gradsouthwest, Dr Deborah Watson, said “The south west has a proliferation of large big name companies but many graduates don’t realise this, and some discount them because they believe it will mean a move to London. By showcasing the local and regional opportunities available we hope to increase awareness and ultimately, encourage the retention of graduate talent which benefits the regional economy”.

If you run a graduate scheme and would like to advertise vacancies or be included in, the Directory, pleasecontact us!

Package changes and new prices from 1st October 2018

Last year we improved our packages to reflect your feedback, adding more enhanced reach and social media promotion.This year we have added a Graduate Scheme Package for those running longer recruitment campaigns.

We understand that budgets are tight (ours are too), so this year we are holding the prices on all our enhanced packages, and only increasing the baseline cost of adverts to reflect our increased costs.

We hope you think this is a fair balance, and we think we are still good value for money. From 1st October 2018 a standard advert will cost £100 ex VAT and a featured advert £140 ex VAT.

Please visit our website forfull package costs and content.

Testimonials Wanted!

One of the best parts of our job is hearing from satisfied recruiters and your new recruits.

We usually hear about this when you are placing your next advert. We're currently updating our testimonials section so areasking all those who have complimented our service recently to put pen to paper and provide a short testimonial.

It's good for us - and it gets your company a little extra exposure with our graduate candidates. Thank you!

Venturefest South West

Talks are in progress about another Venturefest South West event in early 2019.

The 2016 Venturefest South West was a huge success, showcasing the cutting-edge innovation and entrepreneurship coming out of Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. More than 600 delegates attended this inaugural event at Sandy Park and our Director, Dr Deborah Watson spoke at the event.

The organisers are now exploring options for an event in early 2019. They are consulting with relevant organisations and individuals and would greatly appreciate you taking a few minutes to complete the short survey attached and give them your thoughts on a future event.
