Grad Central Celebrates Milestone Placement

Grad Central Celebrates Milestone Placement

Leading graduate recruitment specialist, Grad Central, is celebrating its 600th placement, following a successful year exiting from under AWM funding.

Discussing the milestone, Lucy Cheatham, Marketing Director at Grad Central, commented: "Grad Central was initially set up with the help of AWM to help retain graduate talent within the West Midlands. Throughout this period we've assisted businesses and graduates looking to fill roles and help drive the region's economic growth.

"Year after year the West Midlands has seen considerable growth in the graduate job market, with more large corporations recognising the importance of graduates within their business. Since the demise of the regional development agencies, Grad Central has successfully become self sufficient, securing exclusive contracts with National Express, Yell, Deutsche Bank and Coca-Cola - some of the region's largest employers."

In addition, the recruitment specialist has been pioneering new and innovative interview solutions.

"With more graduates than ever currently seeking roles, Grad Central has been supporting candidates through new initiatives designed to help them stand out against their peers, and secure their perfect role. Video CV's are becoming increasingly more popular amongst our clients. They allow candidates to express their personality and passion for a particular role, which often can set them apart from another candidate with equal experience.

"In addition, our dedicated open days have seen numbers increase month on month and offer clients and candidates the perfect opportunity to meet face-to-face."

The placement figures form part of an annual assessment, which shows a strong increase in the number of graduate roles being created throughout the West Midlands region. Growth industries included: IT, sales, marketing communications, customer services and general management.

Grad Central is dedicated to matching both recently qualified and more experienced graduate talent with business needs across the West Midlands region. The company offers a wide range of solutions to manage a business' recruitment process from start to finish, whether this is through one of its expert consultants or with its recently launched Jobs Board.
