Event description

Description

Does your business have vacancies to fill but you’re struggling to find talented staff? Have you been recruiting but not getting the desired results?

Trafford Council are proud to announce an exciting new venture in collaboration with The University of Manchester, The University of Salford, and Manchester Metropolitan University. In the summer of 2017, there will be 29,000+ graduate students within the Greater Manchester area who are eager to move into employment, look for exciting new opportunities and to find that perfect job.

Recent surveys show that only 13,000 end up working in Greater Manchester and the remaining 16,000 move outside of the area for work. They have the skills and qualifications to help small businesses grow and develop.

By attending our drop-in session, you will be the catalyst of kick-starting our graduates by helping them integrate into working life whilst being able to talk to the University Employment teams and gain tips on how to recruit graduates. We’re calling on Trafford businesses to utilise this valuable talent pool before they move out of the area.

Why attend?

You can benefit from our talented graduates/post-graduates, giving them the chance to shine whilst gaining a highly versatile and talented workforce. “Grad Employ on Thursday 13 July 2017 between 14:00-16:00, will provide the best method for publicising your vacancies directly to our bright and talented graduates. Members of the employment teams from The University of Manchester, The University of Salford and Manchester Metropolitan University will be on hand to help you find the talent you need.

What you will gain:

  • The opportunity to publicise your vacancies to 3 of Greater Manchester’s most prestigious universities, direct to students via the employment teams.

  • Support with your recruitment process direct from the universities.

  • Meeting university staff who can act as the gateway to accessing student talent across all Schools of study

  • Gain a greater understanding of the different activities to engage with students on campus
