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.
