Event description

Description

Welcome to The Small Graduate Recruiters’ Club - a series of events throughout the year to support businesses looking to take on, or improve, how they hire small numbers of graduates. We’re starting with a small but perfectly formed conference to lift the lid on all things ‘graduate recruitment and retention’ in the Yorkshire region. In usual GC style, there will be plenty of helpful takeaways you can use in your business the very next day - from salary benchmarking to recruitment and retention tips/templates.

The conference will be particularly useful if your business – large or small - is looking to recruit between 1 and 40 graduates per year (either into a job or onto a more structured graduate scheme) and you want to ‘DIY’ your graduate recruitment rather than pay agency fees.

From an overview of the graduate labour market to learning and development activities you can run with all staff in your business, the sessions will be based around the broad themes of graduate attraction, selection and retention, with a sprinkling of useful legal/HR information and a guide to working directly with Universities.

The full schedule of workshops is as follows:
