Graduate recruitment: developing the talent of today to create the leaders of tomorrow
By getting to know your company, your culture and exactly how it is that you currently recruit, we are able to help you to not only attract and hire graduates, but help to retain them as well.
Whether you are looking for help with managing your graduate campaigns, or just need a platform for prospect graduate employees to apply through – we are the number one choice.
With roughly 1.5 million students graduating with bachelor degrees every year, most of whom will graduate around May; it can be very difficult for companies to manage the flood of CVs that come in for permanent positions and graduate scheme vacancies – this can lead to a lot of time spent phone screening, CV searching and rejection email sending.
The biggest challenge in this situation is that many graduates do not have a very detailed career or experience history, and with many graduates having a very specific skill set such as archaeology or development for example, it can be difficult to highlight those suitable from what is likely to be a very generic CV. With this in mind, a ‘suitable’ graduate is often selected by their final grade in their chosen subject as to whether or not to invite them in for interview.
The Vacancy Filler Recruitment Platform takes these difficulties into consideration; a number of features, both standard and ‘add-on’, help to minimise the amount of time it takes to sift through the applications by highlighting the key skills you are looking for, this information is saved with each individual application direct on our cloud-based platform, so you can access it from anywhere with an internet connection.
Additional features such as integrated skills-based testing will allow you to assess a candidate’s ability on a particular set of subjects that you are free to define, again keeping scores with the application. Again, Video Interviewing is available
in our software, so you can get a better view of the candidate and how they present themselves whilst answering a set of questions that you deem to be important.
At any point during or following a campaign, you will be able to access real-time reports showing the source that most of your graduate applicants applied through; this is great for knowing whether to invest more in advertising on LinkedIn, Facebook, Job Boards or maybe even your careers page – You will also have the ability to report on equality and diversity, time to hire and cost of hire.
