Current graduate recruitment and selection practices

The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills has recently published a report which examines the approach to graduate recruitment currently being adopted by employers.

Published: 11/12/2015

This fascinating and in-depth report is a must read for anyone involved in graduate recruitment. It describes patterns in graduate recruitment over the past few years, looks at employer demand for new graduates, the drivers behind the need for graduates, the type of roles they are looking to fill, and what competencies employers are now looking for in potential recruits. In addition, the report explores the nature of graduate recruitment, in terms of how employers market themselves and raise awareness of the organisation and their brand, and of the opportunities they have.
