‘We discovered the Graduate Recruitment Consultancy in November 2008 whilst starting our very first recruitment drive.

Graduates are young and enthusiastic individuals, eager to learn and contribute. They are adaptable to new ideas, keen to get involved in the business and have a good work ethic.

We have very much enjoyed working with the Graduate Recruitment Team and found it to be our most successful method of recruiting new employees. They take care of the whole process for us from introduction through to the job offer.’

‘I knew that using Purple Door would make the process easy. We would avoid expensive agency and advertising costs and days of interviewing.

The Graduate Recruitment Consultancy provide a professional service which has taken the headache out of our last two recruitments.

The advantages of employing a graduate means that you get a fresh, keen employee who is ready to work hard and make a success of their new role. The graduate will have up to date skills, ideas and methods of working which your entire company can benefit from.

It is definitely worth a try. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain……’

‘We were very impressed with the broadness of the service on offer to students and felt the consultant had the best interests of both the graduate and the organisation at heart.

The consultant took time to visit us, and meet face-to-face, which is something no other recruiter had done before. The process felt much more personalised and gave us confidence that everything would run smoothly.

The experience has been overwhelmingly positive. It is a cost effective service and an excellent calibre of candidates were presented for consideration.

Give it a go! The consultants know the students and take time to understand the brief and organisation.’
