Businesses across the West Midlands can now access the best graduate talent the region has to offer without any costly recruitment fees thanks to a brand new and completely unique service from Grad Central.

The graduate recruitment specialist has launched its online Jobs Board, which gives any business the opportunity to advertise their graduate vacancies free of charge to a highly focused pool of recently qualified and more experienced local graduate job seekers.

This new service is set to save businesses across the region thousands of pounds in recruitment advertising and fees. Its the next major initiative launched by Grad Central after the company announced earlier this year that it had saved West Midlands companies over 750,000 in recruitment costs by not charging them any fees for their first graduate placement.

Lucy Cheatham, Marketing Director at Grad Central, commented: Our key aim is to retain graduate talent in the West Midlands and help more and more businesses realise the value and skills that someone who is degree educated can bring to their company.

The Jobs Board is the first of its kind that is dedicated solely for the West Midlands. It compliments our traditional recruitment service, where our expert consultants will continue to work with businesses every step of the way to fulfil their recruitment needs. However, for those recruiters that want more hands-on involvement, this new service gives them a quick and simple way of raising their employer brand and promoting their jobs and graduate schemes. Grad Central has over 30,000 graduates registered and around 18,000 visitors to our website each month, giving businesses access to a wide range of skills dependant on their needs.

Grad Centrals Jobs Board offers a number of packages, ranging from a basic job vacancy posting which is free for 14 days, right up to bespoke and customised packages to help businesses really get noticed.

Continued Lucy: Theres no doubt that the economic climate has made the jobs market extremely competitive. This isnt just the case though for graduates looking for work, competition is also fierce between businesses wanting the best talent. Any measures that can help them stand out from the crowd will obviously make them more of an attractive proposition to potential candidates.
