Companies can outsource their graduate recruitment attraction to STEM Graduates to ensure that they receive the strongest students and graduates from a Science, IT, Engineering or Maths degree at a competitive price. We can manage every aspect of the recruitment process for companies that require assistance at critical times during their graduate campaign. STEM Graduates can also introduce large numbers of students or graduates to employers that require a proactive service in order to fill a large number of vacancies.
We have unrivalled access to students and graduates as a result of our website, university relationships and social media communities. As a consequence we are well positioned to identify suitable candidates and to introduce them to our clients. This is particularly attractive for companies that have an immediate need for applicants or who lack the resources to conduct a year-long candidate attraction campaign.
Our student sourcing and graduate hire teams are in daily contact with the strongest candidates. They can pre-screen potential applicants and ensure that only the most appropriate candidates are introduced to the client. It means that our clients are able to review a manageable number of outstanding applications, rather than spend time responding to unsuitable direct applicants.
We can work with clients who wish to outsource part of their graduate recruitment. Working alongside the hiring managers, we can draft agreed service levels and ensure that we work towards an agreed set of recruitment targets.
There are some challenges that may appear unrealistic for employers who rely on direct applicants to fill their vacancies. We recently worked with a company who wanted to achieve a gender balance within their IT intake but found that the overwhelming majority of direct applicants were male. We have promoted the roles to our candidates, actively marketing the opportunities to members of our female community, and the client is now likely to achieve a more even gender split as a result.
