After a hosting a graduate for a year, the impact had two main effects on this Aberdeen technology company, as Andy Rolph, Forensic Division Manager explains.
I would thoroughly recommend the programme to other companies, and have indeed done so.
It is obviously difficult to accurately assess the financial impact our participation in the programme has had on the company, as the placement has been working jointly on various projects and cases. However, I would place it in the £0k - £50k range.
The TalentScotland (now ScotGrad) Graduate Placement Programme is an excellent strategic Scottish initiative, which brings employment opportunities and experience to graduates, and makes companies aware of the potential benefits of employing graduates. It’s a programme which other countries would do well to replicate.
