Description

*Please note - priority will be given to businesses based in Trafford.

Trafford Council are proud to announce that due to the success of “Grad Employ – Linking Graduates with Employers” event in July 2017, we will be hosting a further event for employers looking to recruit graduate talent.

Higher Potential - Linking Employers with Higher Education”, is the collaborative matchmaking recruitment event, created by Trafford Council, The University of Manchester, The University of Salford, Manchester Metropolitan University and Trafford College. “Higher Potential - Linking Employers with Higher Education”, seeks to match Greater Manchester’s Higher Educational institutions with businesses that are looking to recruit Graduates and Higher Level Students who are eager to move into employment, look for exciting new opportunities and to find that perfect job.

In the summer of 2018, 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 able to talk direct to the Employment teams at three universities and gain tips on how to recruit graduates and students. If you have a few roles to fill, you can also take advantage of our jobs fair the following week to talk to students directly.
