Competition amongst employers is getting tougher as the number of graduate and school leaver vacancies has increased and unemployment is at lowest levels since 2008.

Both recruitment and development programmes have been adapted to meet demographic and generational changes and recruitment methods are steadily moving from competency to strength based measures to allow candidates a chance to show the areas they are most likely to be good at.

This is why Symposium Events have partnered with Saville Consulting to bring you the “Graduate and early careers – Lessons learnt survey 2015“.

We are eager to understand the good and the bad from the world of graduate recruitment including:

  • Selection methods
  • Changes in graduate numbers and roles
  • Recruitment challenges
  • Measuring the return on investment

Our short survey will only take 5 minutes of your time to complete!

This survey will enable us to provide you with a full picture of current issues, future trends and the assessment practices of organisations to whom graduate talent is key.

Preliminary results of the survey will be shared at the forthcoming Graduate Recruitment and Development Forum on the 26th February 2015. If you are not attending the event, we will email a copy of the report ahead of general publication.

The report will be a must-have for student recruiters, make sure you participate in the survey today!
