Why should you do this?
> Most businesses would benefit from recruiting new talent possessing ambition, motivation and fresh ideas.
> Graduates acquire many skills while at university which they can apply in the workplace.
> Graduates are enthusiastic learners and are often productive at a faster pace.
> Graduates are the ideal target for career development and succession planning.
> Technology is always changing and graduates will have the most up-to-date knowledge available.
If you have concerns about taking on a graduate straight from education many places offer internship programmes which take away some of the risks. For example, the University of Hull may be able to offer a salary subsidy of £1200.
