Our Company

STEM Graduates is a recruitment agency specialising in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths graduate recruitment.

We have developed a popular website and social media presence that has given us a market leading position within our niche sector. It is a privately owned business with a team of 4 and we are looking to expand.

All recruitment is permanent and we target start-up firms and SMEs with specific hiring needs. We act as the sole graduate recruitment agency for many of our clients.

The Role

We currently have an opportunity to introduce graduates to permanent positions with start-up and SME employers.

Our vacancies are UK wide and often begin with an internet based candidate search targeting a specific degree course. As a result each consultant splits their time between outbound new business calls, candidate searching and conducting phone based interviews to qualify graduates for roles.

Our consultants do not "meet" our candidates and we regard ourselves as a search focussed recruitment consultancy rather than a high street recruiter.

This means that the majority of our time is spent working from our office. But don't let that put you off. Our building contains a rooftop garden, record breaking mural, basement café and tenant events!

It is common for trainees to focus on new business tasks during their first few months before moving into a full consultant position. Experienced consultants are likely to combine client and candidate tasks upon joining our company.

Our Culture

We aim to recruit individuals who are innovative, engaging, capable of developing an insight into our markets and who can work efficiently to achieve outstanding results.

Our working environment is supportive, offering guidance, regular appraisals and encouraging staff to take responsibility for their recruitment desks. .

We may not offer a formal training programme but instead we form a close knit team and trainees learn from experienced consultants. Our staff also benefit from working alongside a hands-on Owner/Director. It is common for all staff members to enjoy Friday pub lunches and tenant socials together.


Graduate calibre candidate with the confidence and ability to make outbound sales calls. We value consultants who can gain a detailed insight into each vacancy so that roles can be prioritised.

Candidates with sales experience who have targeted decision makers within a professional environment will have an advantage but this is not essential.

We want to hear from candidates who have read about our company, the role, our culture and can tell us why they feel suited to the role.
