May: visas, holidays and summer jobs

This month graduate recruitment has been under the Government spotlight with the release of a Home Office commissioned report that has found that the UK's graduate visa scheme is not being widely abused and should remain in place. For those of you that recruit international students the retention of this route (which allows international students to stay in the UK for 2-3 years after graduation) is critical - so hopefully this is good news and the Government takes on board it's own advice.

Many undergraduates are now completing the last of exams and finishing off coursework for the summer holidays. Don't forget we offer free summer job adverts (roles <12 weeks) - so if you don't have your summer intern yet - advertise now!

And if your role is longer term, if you want to hire from the Class of 2024 you need to have your adverts live before they are all snapped up!
