UK – Randstad announces new graduate recruitment programme


Randstad UK has joined forces with its subsidiary Pareto, a British sales recruitment specialist, to recruit graduates for the 2013 intake. The programme will see Randstad UK recruit graduates across five specialised sectors: Business Support, Financial & Professional, Education, Technologies, and Care. Successful graduates will enter the organisation as Graduate Recruitment Consultants in September 2013.

Mark Bull, CEO of Randstad said: “For the fifteen graduates selected, the programme will offer experience in the recruitment sector that is second-to-none. It’s vital that we continue to attract high calibre staff to the sector. Randstad has found that by 2050 the UK workforce will have a shortfall of 3.1 million skilled workers, if skills shortages are not addressed. A new cohort of graduates who are effective in encouraging and placing new talent is one approach to this problem.”
