With 81% of graduates starting work outside London, Graduate Prospects has cemented its alliance with university careers services to offer a central point for employers to post local vacancies.
Companies recruiting graduates regionally or nationally can now promote their job-openings to more than 80 university careers services throughout the UK using Prospects Net, the online vacancy handling service from Graduate Prospects.
Mark Watts, e-commerce business manager at Graduate Prospects explains: “London has always been seen as the hub for graduate talent, but with the majority of graduates choosing to remain locally employers should consider moving their focus to the regions. We’ve put a lot of work into regional penetration this year to reduce the time it takes to post vacancies with the many careers services across the country, simplifying the whole process for those looking to recruit talent outside London.”
Prospects Net has been developed in response to the growing demand from employers for a centralised database to improve the efficiency of online vacancy advertising. Advertising to university careers services can be targeted regionally or nationally.
