Why hire graduates?

Your talent will be your most
valuable asset.

So, why recruit graduates?

We recognise the many benefits of employing graduates, so will always endeavour to show you the value they can add to businesses.

Our own team is largely made up of university graduates, and each of our internal graduate employees speak to 100s of candidates every week. Graduates are driven, adaptable, and have no issue being autonomous. What they can offer you is invaluable.

As the leading UK recruiting agency for graduates, we have access to the best talent. Read on for more reasons why you should consider hiring new graduates to become your future leaders.


Return on investment

Graduate hires have a high return on investment. We hire new employees cost-effectively and consistently 2 times quicker than the industry average.



Graduates’ lesser experience is a bonus, not a hindrance. They’ll easily adapt to your way of working. Let us help you understand how to hire graduates for your requirements.


On a budget?

With less experience, graduates’ starting salaries will be more cost-effective. Trust an experienced graduate recruiting agency like ours to help you hire on a budget.


New perspectives

Positive change is crucial. Hiring graduates opens up the opportunity for a different generation’s eyes to see your business, suggest ideas, and improve old practices you didn’t even realise were outdated!



Having just finished at least 3 years of independent studying, it’s no surprise that grads consistently display drive, initiative, and autonomy. The onboarding process is easier, and they’ll start adding value to your company quickly.


Growth for all

As graduate recruitment specialists, we’re used to hearing discussions of ‘career development’ and ‘progression’. We can find candidates that are excited about not only growing your company but also growing at your company.

  • Whilst we can’t speak on the effectiveness of other graduate recruitment firms, the success of our own recruitment service is evident. Having successfully placed over 4000 candidates in 1000+ companies worldwide, we’re certain our recruitment methodology works.

    Our winning employee recruitment strategy is a product of over a decade worth of experience navigating the graduate jobs market.

    Alongside efficiency, we also pride ourselves on being a quality employee recruitment agency. We understand that successfully employing graduates involves matching candidates to businesses based on wider company culture, alongside skills and qualifications. Ensuring that potential graduate hires fit into your work environment is key to finding candidates whose aligning qualities result in high retention rates.

    In short, we’ve got the recruiting tools to find candidates of quality, quickly. Hire better people now.

  • We understand that employers are often hesitant to enlist the help of an external employee recruitment agency due to costs. At Give a Grad a Go, the cost of hiring a graduate via our managed recruitment services is ascertained by taking a percentage-fee of the job salary. Given that grad starting salaries tend to be lower, due to the junior nature of the role, our graduate hiring agency fees remain low. As such, recruiting grads is a great way to expand teams whilst on a budget.

    To be clear, our recruitment fee is only taken once the employee recruitment and selection process is over and the successful candidate has been placed. In short, we charge no upfront costs. If you’re keen to recruit graduates using our recruitment support, our client services team will arrange an employee recruitment plan and fee that works best for your business. Hire a graduate today!

    If our managed recruitment services do not fit into your hiring budget, we also offer job posting services that enable you to recruit grads by directly posting on our jobs board. Alternatively, if your budget is directed towards enhancing your employer brand, our branding services can help you boost your EVP at a low rate and hire grads with ease.

    Whatever your budget, our professional recruiting agency can offer you a service that makes employing a graduate an inexpensive feat.

  • Good recruitment relies on knowing where to look and knowing who to approach. We know that university students are some of the most valuable business assets in the country. Universities are full of sharp, driven, intelligent people, eager to get their careers started. So, if you recruit students, you’re bringing energy and attitude into your business that can have a direct impact on productivity.

    They also add fresh perspectives to your business. This may mean reassessing certain operations, diversifying your culture, or imbuing your office with refreshing attitudes. Experience must always be paired and contrasted with new professionals: this is how the best organisations operate.

    University students tend to be exploring career options in their final years of university. At Give a Grad a Go, we have close partnerships with universities across the country, helping students work out what direction they could take after their studies.

    If you’re looking for a UK hiring agency to help you with fresh graduate hiring, get in touch today. We have a database of enthusiastic students and talented graduates, with a range of backgrounds, qualifications, and skills.
