After having worked with numerous recruitment agencies it was nice to work with Mark at Discovery and really feel like they were interested in getting people into jobs that would match them rather than trying to hit targets. I found the whole process as stress free as assessment days and job hunting can be! Mark was in regular contact giving feedback on my CV and my phone interview skills and found me a job which I love. I would highly recommend Mark and Discovery to anyone.

The Discovery Graduates OPEN Programme is a remarkable offering, one that I believe will make a huge difference to the development, future progression and retention of the individuals attending. In such a competitive marketplace, this could make all the difference to the success of an organisation’s graduate programme.

I have found the Discovery OPEN Programme immensely beneficial already. The first module was really interesting as well as useful. I am already making changes on the back of the feedback I have been given, which is having a positive impact on my performance at work. My increased awareness of the impact of my behaviour has led to some modifications, which are improving my results. I am really looking forward to module two.

Like many small businesses, I have to admit to being sceptical as to why graduates would be interested in working with us. The response to the campaign led by Discovery blew me away: 500 applicants, shortlisted to seven extremely high calibre candidates. The assessment day was brilliantly planned and extremely thorough, resulting in not just the original one appointment we were looking to make, but two. Discovery were there every step of the way, offering honest, measured feedback – the net resu…

I loved module 1! I was actually dreading it as I’m definitely not an outdoors kind of person but it was so much fun! I learnt a lot about myself and I’m now feeling very inspired and motivated! Thank you

Completing the Parallax profiling test was invaluable as it provided me with a detailed and highly accurate report which broke down how I could display my key competencies more effectively. I found the entire recruitment process at Discovery Graduates to be incredibly enlightening. I would thoroughly recommend working with the team and I look forward to any interaction I have with them in the future.

Discovery Graduates’ impressive track record of recruiting and retaining very high quality people made them the first choice for our Aspiring Leaders Programme. We are committed to bringing the most talented people into our organisation and investing in their development to enable them to become an integral part of the business. Discovery Graduates will not only recruit these people but, more importantly, will work with us as we develop them to become our future leaders.

As a company we are committed to developing graduate talent however like many other businesses, because of our size we are unable to offer a dedicated in-house graduate training programme. The OPEN Programme has been a fantastic solution for us – with one of our team recently completing it, we can already see how it is benefiting both the graduate and the organisation in general. So much so that we have just signed up our latest graduate for the Spring 2013 programme.

The Discovery OPEN Programme was quite simply a brilliant learning experience and I have no doubt that I have become a better person for it. I took away from it a clearer understanding of my role within my company, improved internal relations, awareness of my weaknesses as well as strengths and a greater ability to contribute effectively in an emotionally intelligent way to the needs of the business.

In the highly competitive West Midlands engineering sector, it is difficult enough to attract talent especially when you are not well known as a graduate recruiter. Discovery have delivered excellent results, enabling us to attract and develop exceptional graduate talent. We value the unique offering of the OPEN Programme that provides a structured approach to support our graduates and allows us to compete with the very best.
