graduate-jobs.com always manages to produce great results for our clients, and the customer service received from the site is second to none! I would have no hesitation in recommending the site when planning graduate campaigns in the future.
Misha Patel, Media Buyer, Penna
We have started using Graduate-jobs in the last year for some of our client's graduate campaigns, but already graduate-jobs have proven to be one of the best performing media that we use. The site is easy to use and navigate through and our contacts at graduate-jobs are always very helpful and responsive and go above and beyond to ensure that our campaigns are working well for our clients.
Katie Logan, Media Buyer, SAS
Working with Graduate-Jobs has been a pleasure; the team are always prompt in responding to requests and go out of their way to ensure that the client's needs are met. The site itself is easy to use and performs particularly well.

GradWeb have used Graduate-Jobs as part of the graduate recruitment attraction campaign mix for a number of our high-profile clients and have always had great success with both the quality and quantity of candidate applications. We find their agility and insight works well with our own approach allowing us to provide our clients with media that is both pro-active in its planning and re-active to the changing needs of a campaign.
Susannah Fuidge, Media Consultant, GradWeb
Hi Gerry, We've just hired a team of graduate field sales in record time and looking at the source 85% of them are through graduate-jobs.com. Just thought I'd let you know!
Just wanted to say thanks. The advert had a great response, we've now short listed 12 people for interviews (and have a standby short list of another 8). I've contacted the first 12 today and so far have had a positive response back from the candidates - with 5 phone interviews already scheduled for Thursday.
Charlotte Grice, Design & Architecture Resource Manager, Alcatel Lucent
Having recruited consistently over the last 2 year for London and Country I have tried various combinations of advertising / database searches and agencies. I used Graduate Jobs for the first time on my July 2011 Campaign and immediately got both the highest number of applicants and starts I had achieved over the previous 2 years. This has remained consistent over 3 campaigns subsequently as well.
After a bit of work to set up the initial adverts, e-shots and mini-sites during which I was extremely well supported it has since simple been a case of starting each campaign with a quick phone call that has delivered immediate results. I have also been very impressed with the follow up/feedback and MI that I get from graduate-jobs.com about what is going on with my campaign.
The fact that since using them for that first time I have used them for 2 more recruitment drives and now signed up for a longer term arrangement is testimony to the great results achieved and the ease of working with them. Thanks very much to all involved.
Jim Selley, Senior Sales Manager, London and Country Mortgages
The most difficult thing about recruitment is not finding the quantity of candidates, but the quality candidates. Over the last 12 months I have repeatedly used graduate-jobs.com and second-jobber.com as a way of sourcing high calibre candidates for our specific graduate training scheme, as I have complete confidence that a vacancy listing/targeted email with Graduate Jobs will always produce the right results. I have every confidence in recommending Graduate Jobs to any likeminded graduate employer looking to source high calibre graduates for their organisation.
Andrew Jones, Director, Express Vending
I've just been going through our 2010 stats and thought you'd like to know that graduate-jobs.com last year generated the highest number of applications for us from any other advertiser and also the highest number of hires over the year as well, I thought you'd be pleased to know that you just piped Milkround by 2 hires and Prospects by 3. Over all you guys generated just over 20% of our total applications - keeping us nice and busy, thanks for your hard work.
Experience and campaign statistics tells me that graduate-jobs.com is a must for digital graduate recruitment campaigns. It's cost effective, the service is outstanding and it works!! Usually a top performer in most campaigns, I will be recommending it without hesitation in future.
Lindsay Abbott, Digital Media Specialist, TMP
Refuge has been running a programme of three month intern placements for just over a year. We've tried a number of different ways to recruit candidates and we have found that by far the best route has been to source recruits via graduate-jobs.com. The graduate-jobs.com team has also been very fast at turning around our recruitment requests and they have worked with us, much like an extension to our team, to ensure we reach out to a wide pool of relevant candidates.
Lisa King, Director of Communications, Refuge
I have used graduate-jobs.com for a number of my graduate clients. The site works very well, always amongst the top performing media and producing good quality applications. The level of service I received was excellent and whenever I needed a proposal or stats, it was done quickly and at a high standard. I would recommend graduate-jobs.com to other media managers and planners when they are planning for graduate clients.
Marina Sapundzic, Media Manager, Work Communications
Transport for London have been using graduate-jobs.com to recruit the best engineering graduates since 2007. They have consistently been one of our best performers in terms of response and return on investment and I would not hesitate in recommending them to other graduate recruitment managers who are also seeking to recruit engineering graduates.
Jennifer Oakley, Development Schemes Recruitment Manager, Transport for London
Over the last couple of years we've regularly been using graduate-jobs.com and it has consistently been within the top two performers for a variety of clients across our graduate campaigns.
Geoff Pedder, Media Manager, Havas
I have two interviews off the back of graduate-jobs.com and I am confident of an offer. It is an awesome site and I have to say, has mostly UK students on there which is ideal for my defence clients. I have potentially 14 graduate positions coming through in the next few months and also circa 20 next year so I think it is going to be an invaluable tool. The other thing which is good is that you can find students who maybe registered 2 years ago but have gone into jobs, this level of candidate is always difficult to find so graduate-jobs.com is a really good way of finding candidates who have done 2 years in industry and are now looking for their next position. All in all, a really useful tool.
Simon Whithers, Account Manager, Advanced Resource Managers
I have found working and advertising with graduate-jobs.com an absolute pleasure. Not only did they deliver us excellent candidates, which lead to us making an offer on more than one occasion, their customer service and assistance was first class. Thanks graduate-jobs.com!
We purchased a one month job package from graduate-jobs.com using them exclusively to find our 08/09 management analyst intake. We had a terrific response both in terms of quantity and quality and were able to organize two assessment days, making nine offers and getting eight acceptances. The people at graduate-jobs.com are both responsive and knowledgeable. They are a pleasure to deal with.
George Pincus, Executive Recruiter, BearingPoint - Management & Technology Consultants
We have worked with graduate-jobs.com on our graduate recruitment program. The team are very helpful, react fast to our questions and needs and we recruit the majority of our graduates through their website.
Oliver Pratten, HR Director, Decathlon UK
Logica look for the best technical and client focused graduates to join our graduate training scheme and have been using graduate-jobs.com since 2004. We find that they are consistently one of the best job boards we use, providing us with a good flow of candidates and accurate feedback on the status of our campaigns. They are flexible, responsive and always involve us in new ideas to target the graduates we would like to attract. Importantly for CGI, the graduates we survey also provide positive feedback for graduate-jobs.com and I would not hesitate in recommending the website to other graduate employer.
Katy Gilman, Recruitment Manager, CGI

Based in central London, Hardwicke Building is a progressive, established barristers' chambers specialising in all areas of civil litigation and non-contentious legal work. Hardwicke Building used graduate-jobs.com in October to advertise a role for a bright and motivated Trainee Barristers' Clerk. We chose to advertise on the site for 7 days. As a direct result of placing the advert we received 27 applications from which we short listed 7 for interview. We made an offer on the 10th of November and the selected candidate starts on the 27th November. We have been hugely impressed by the ease of use, speed, friendly service, advice, and value for money from graduate-jobs.com and will certainly use them when we next have a vacancy.

The graduate-jobs.com service helped us fill our vacancy quickly, cost effectively and most importantly of all with an outstanding candidate. We were amazed at both the quality and quantity of applications received and will certainly be using their service again in the future.
