New Funding to Help Businesses Recruit
Posted on Friday, November 8, 2019 by Gradsouthwest Team — No comments
Gradsouthwest has partnered with Bath Spa University, the University of Bath, Bath College and the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership to provide employment services to South West businesses and graduates.
Funded by the Office for Students, the GradTalent Development Agency seeks to increase the retention of home-grown talent* by linking graduates with graduate opportunities offered by employers in the south west.
The funding allows us to offer eligible employers:
- Specialised matching of local graduates to vacancies with local employers
- Individualised graduate recruitment and selection tailoring to specific needs
- Post-placement support to both the employer and graduate, designed to optimise on-boarding and ongoing development
- Advice and guidance to assist businesses employing graduates with a disability
- Additional assistance available for SME businesses navigating through the recruitment process
The funding is available to SMEs in Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and the West of England *Bristol & Bath areas) that haven't used Gradsouthwest in the last 2 years.
