Recruitment

So you’ve attracted the right number of high quality candidates. But you must now identify the ones that are the best fit for your business. Making the right choice involves a rigorous recruitment process and requires specialist knowledge and skills. That’s where Discovery Graduates come in.

For over 15 years we have helped some of the UKs leading companies attract and recruit outstanding graduates. Our experience will save you time and help you avoid the high cost of appointing the wrong people.

Organisations tend to look to a candidate’s abilities or competencies when recruiting for role. While this is important, it only tells half the story and does not help avoid hiring the wrong person.

Discovery Graduates are proponents of values based recruitment. An approach that looks at the whole person, their abilities, personal values and behaviours, to ensure they align with the culture and values of your business – giving you the best chance of recruiting the right people every time.

A recent CIPD Resourcing and Talent Planning survey revealed that 61% of employers feel that they lack the necessary specialist or technical skills to recruit the right employees.

We can manage the entire process for you or work with your internal team to deliver help in identifying the ideal candidate(s).

Our tailored recruitment solutions include:

  • Application screening  We select the candidates who meet the initial criteria, saving you the time of sifting through hundreds of applications.
  • Response management We respond promptly to applicants ensuring your reputation is always protected.
  • Telephone interviews – Competency based, these provide a good initial indication as to whether a potential candidate is right for your business.
  • Discovery Day – An assessment day with our recruitment experts. Where we screen and select only the most suitable candidates to be presented to you.
