Talent searching? How we can help you find talent 🔎
Wondering how to hire the best talent in the UK?
Here are six ways we can help your business find talent…
One of the first and most important ways we help clients to source talent is to fully understand a business’s hiring needs and long-term and short-term goals.
From the outset, you will be assigned an Account Manager, who will be an expert in your industry. The recruitment specialist will meet with you and check in regularly to get to know in depth the needs of the business, which of our services will be the best fit and understand exactly the type of candidate/s you are looking for to grow your team.
If you’re a start-up looking to make your first hire, you might be interested in our ‘temp-to-perm’ hiring solutions whereby candidates have a short 1-6 month trial period, or if you’re a large company looking to make multiple hires, you might consider recruiting contractors, or we can organise assessment days for you. Take a look at more of the different services we provide.
We know that every company is unique, with different aims, different corporate culture and different requirements, so this is a crucial stage for us to help you hire talent that will best help you achieve these.

Our efficient hiring process ensures that every candidate is screened by at least two specialist recruiters, to ensure we are only putting forward the very best for your role.
We get to know our candidates and understand useful aspects that are not visible on their graduate CV, such as phone manor, personality and organisation and availability, meaning we can get a clear idea as to whether they are the right fit for your company.
We know that sometimes employers need to hire candidates quickly, to replace an existing position or to meet sudden demand.
Our database of candidates paired with our expert recruitment consultants; means you’ll receive a shortlist of well-vetted candidates usually within 48 hours.
Our average time to fill a job role is at 17 working days (almost half of the industry average) – so you can trust us to find talent, whatever your deadline.
We know the graduate jobs market inside out, so as part of our bespoke service at Give a Grad a Go we’ve created a range of useful material designed to inform update and, advise our clients.
