Linking local employers with local graduates

Employing a graduate may be the most cost-effective choice to bring fresh ideas, skills and innovation to your business.

Created through a partnership with Bath Spa University, University of Bath, Bath College and the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership, GradTalent offers a comprehensive employment service to South-West region businesses and graduates.

Funded by the Office for Students, GradTalent seeks to increase the retention of home-grown* talent by linking graduates with South West region employers offering graduate opportunities.  Our free service will save time, money and create efficiencies in your recruitment and retention of new graduate employees.

What employers say about us:

“When recruiting for a new employee I really had no idea where to start and then I was introduced to the Grad Talent Development Agency! They have helped me through the whole process – I would have been lost without them. I’m excited for the chosen graduate to start work and I know I can contact them any time with any question.” Maria, Marketing Director.
