Local SMEs get a helping hand to recruit graduates
20th December 2012
Local jobs board Graduates Yorkshire recently held a speed networking event allowing local employers a chance to informally interview graduate job seekers.
Julie Maragh, from The Watershed, who attended the speed networking session on the 11thDecember, said -I would certainly explore this approach as a first step in the recruitment process again. As a small business owner, this was a welcome opportunity to meet prospective applicants and importantly it was time efficient - and therefore a good way forward for SMEs. The speed networking events are part of an internship scheme that Graduates Yorkshire is delivering on behalf of Sheffield Hallam University. The scheme gives employers the opportunity to advertise their vacancies for free and also receive a free short listing service from Graduates Yorkshire. Graduates Yorkshire will be holding another speed networking event in the New Year.
