Opportunities for graduates to work in the South West

Our Director, Dr Deborah Watson gave the Keynote Regional Overview at the recent University of Plymouth South West Opportunities panel, with other speakers from local businesses like Rowe IT, Make UK, Maritime SW, Hays Recruitment and Elixel.

We actively work with University partners to encourage their students to consider building their careers here in the South West - and the majority want to do so, they just need to be made aware of the opportunities available to them.

The mismatch between employers’ assumptions and the behaviours of graduates continues. Graduates are no way as mobile as is often assumed. The majority of graduates stay in the region in which they grew up or studied.

For employers looking to recruit graduates your key targets are literally on your doorstep - or at least in your own region.

That's why recruiting with Gradsouthwest provides an immediate link to the graduates most likely to want to work for you.


IRL Careers Fairs return

We are pleased to have been able to start attending Careers Fairs in person again. Although virtual fairs were a great option during Covid, there's nothing quite like actually meeting people in real life.

We were in Plymouth in February, and are already booked for the University of Bristol Get Hired 2022 event in May and will be adding more to the list as they are released by the Universities.

If you want us to promote you at a Fair we are attending - then all you need is a live advert with us.

KTP for businesses

Taking part in a KTP can help you to develop your business. You can get academic expertise that you don’t have in-house. This can improve your business processes and performance, helping you to become more competitive and productive.

A KTP is part-funded by a grant. A typical KTP project delivers a package of support valued at around £80,000 per year.

KTP pays 67% of project costs for small and medium-sized enterprises and 50% for large businesses. Businesses will need to contribute the remaining cost of the project.

And if you get funding - we can help you recruit!
