Recruiment Specialists

Developing tomorrow’s leaders

Our graduate recruitment service answers a specific client challenge: that of finding appropriately-talented individuals in an increasingly demanding technical and cultural environment where a shortage of skills is the biggest barrier to progress.

Our solution to this challenge is two-fold: we can either create and manage volume intake programmes for new generations of talent, or help you to create high-performing employees by identifying candidates with the attitude and potential that will enable them to be become high performers through role-specific training programmes.

In the latter case we can source graduates with a relevant Bachelors, Masters or PhD, an appropriate year’s industrial or technical placement with a relevant thesis and the ambition and qualities that make them right for your business.

We provide a first-class graduate on-boarding service with superb candidate care that reflects well on our clients’ brands, and can source the best graduates across the UK, Europe, Asia and the US.

By sourcing the most talented individuals and consulting with clients on how to support their development, we are speeding up the time to competency of a whole new generation of engineers.  Our success in this area means that some of our graduate hires have already become clients in their own right.

Building a graduate network

Whether it’s for volume graduate intake programmes or a highly focused search for specialist potential, there is a strong and defined methodology behind our graduate recruitment service.

We build pipelines of talent within credible centres of excellence. We have built mutually beneficial partnerships with course leaders and career advice centres at reputable universities and the elite Formula Student educational motorsport competition, and our tactical marketing reach includes career portals, open days, handouts and more.

We can attend assessment centres and are skilled at identifying potential, character fit and attitude.

Our volume recruitment service provides huge time and hassle-saving from our clients’ HR departments as we can ensure they see only the most relevant candidates from a pool of many applicants.

We have supported a number of clients with volume graduate intake and can conduct benchmarking reports where we assess a client’s employer brand in comparison to the wider market.

Business areas we source Graduates for include (but are not limited to) the below: 

  • Engineering and Technical
  • Project and Programme
  • Sales and Business Development
  • Marketing
  • Information Technology (IT)

Get started

David’s advice, experience and knowledge were a great help and gave me confidence when I was still new to the market, and his calls to make sure everything was going okay were a nice touch. If I was considering a career change I would definitely call him first!

Quality Engineer

Paris found me my first graduate position and took care of everything for me. She rang before my start date to ensure I had all I needed, on my first day to wish me luck, and at the end of my first week. She’s a pleasure to work with and really cares.

Materials Engineer

Simon was instrumental in helping me gain a placement at Infiniti-Red Bull Racing. He is naturally approachable and professional and working with him greatly increased my chances of success. He continues to check in even after his main task has been completed. I would recommend anybody work with him.

Infiniti Performance Engineering Academy Winner

David helped me get my first job within the Electronics Industry right after I graduated from university. He also helped me negotiate for my second job. In both instances he was proactive in providing feedback, immediately responded to queries and could easily comprehend my professional and career expectations.

Electronics Engineering Graduate

He was very helpful and professional during the whole process, he provided all the assistance that I needed in a timely manner and he managed to get the best deal for me and for my new company.
