Dan Hawes, Co-Founder of Graduate Mentor

My company, Graduate Recruitment Bureau (GRB), has an extensive network of business and academic professionals built up over 24 years across all sectors from FTSE100 firms to fast-growing SMEs. We have supplied well over 8,000 University graduates from our talent pool and helped launch incredible careers. I am delighted that so many mentors have volunteered to help the next generation of graduates, especially those from disadvantaged and under-represented groups.

We were keen for our new starter to have as much one-to-one professional guidance but were simply unable to provide this in-house in addition to our training. Fortunately we were able to direct our graduate to GM where they could find an industry professional who had kindly volunteered to assist via the platform. We saw this as a win-win-win situation and were delighted we could turn to GM for extra support in these challenging times. We hope this will give our new graduate the best possible start and enable them to reach their potential earlier and contribute to the business in a shorter time frame.”
