Despite 2020 having been one of the hardest years for the recruitment industry so far, we’re proud to have achieved some fantastic results and improved since last year on many areas across the business.
Helping to support our client’s businesses when they needed us the most and seeing many job-seekers secure a role during a difficult year has been inspiring and rewarding for us all at Give a Grad a Go.

Throughout 2020 and the lockdown period, we placed 361 candidates at 164 businesses across 15 sectors, including many rapidly expanding tech sectors.
Out of the total 15 sectors we hired across, 9 of these were tech sectors, solidifying the high need for technical roles.
We also saw a growing need for tech-based roles within a range of non-tech sectors, with 30% of our tech roles filled within non-tech-focused businesses.
As more companies embraced remote working, we saw many of our clients’ roles become fully remote, and with 25 out of the 108 universities, and our candidates graduating from being located overseas, our international talent pool suited this transition into remote working.
Our recent launch in Australia earlier this year also helped to solidify and grow our international reach and see candidates placed in fantastic roles across Australia.
