Give A Grad A Go

Proudly sponsoring The Give A Grad A Go Employer of the Year Award

Give A Grad A Go is the UK’s most recognised and successful multi-sector graduate recruitment agency.

Since 2009, we have supported the growth of over 500 businesses, and helped to develop thousands of graduates in the early stages of their careers.

Give A Grad A Go works with companies of all shapes and sizes, ranging from burgeoning startups, to global corporations. Saving businesses valuable time, money and resources, we introduce them to a larger network, speed up their new hiring cycles, and consistently streamline their early career recruitment processes.

Our network

We believe that graduates can add value to any business; whether you’re an early-stage startup or SME aiming for rapid growth, or part of an in-house team looking to recruit a pair of fresh eyes, and a new perspective.

We work with each of our candidates on a personal basis, getting to know their individual career objectives and goals. We make recommendations to them based on their criteria; then candidates are able to apply for specific roles on our job board.

With a vetted database of over 225,000 candidates, we can introduce businesses to the very best in graduate talent.

Testament to the quality of our database, 40% of our candidates graduated from a Top 20 university, and 84% of our database have a 1st, a 2.1 or a Master’s degree.

Hiring with speed and accuracy

We understand how important it is to find the right employee for each business, so as well as focusing on outstanding academic records, our approach also values a candidate’s personality, experience and interests.

As your graduate recruitment partner, our goal is to get a shortlist of our best-matched candidates sent to you within 3 working days.

We continue to be on-hand at every stage, to help with the interview process, feedback, contracts, and even candidate onboarding.

Our average time to fill is just 17 working days, and we only charge a placement fee once a candidate has started. You won’t pay a penny until we’ve found you exactly what you’re looking for – making our service the most cost-effective on the market.
