Graduate Recruitment: Keeping Pace with Change


Sourcing graduate talent is rapidly becoming more urgent as employers prepare to face a diminishing post-Brexit talent pool. As KPMG takes the initiative in its recruitment process, what changes will your business make?

Here are our suggestions:-

Reduce your time to hire now

KPMG has taken the initiative this week with a significant reduction in its hiring time, to meet the expectations and demands of graduate talent. The company has refined its candidate assessments, which previously took place over several weeks, combining them into a single day. Applicants will now find out if they have a job offer within two working days, rather than face a lengthy wait. The decision was taken following a survey which found that a third of applicants were frustrated by the recruitment process.
