Gradconsult – Silver Sponsor

Gradconsult is an independent, UK-based consultancy, with a growing number of European and International clients. We undertake a variety of work in the early careers and talent management arena, with a particular specialism in Higher Education and graduate employment. Over the last 5 years we have worked with over 40% of UK universities; from Russell Group institutions to new universities and everyone in between. On the employer side we have worked with all sizes and sectors of organisations, from global corporate graduate schemes to hundreds of SMEs, addressing issues around graduate recruitment, development and retention.

Our team also deliver industry-leading training for both the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS) and the Institute of Student Employers (previously known as AGR). Frequently in the industry and national press, winning and shortlisted for a variety of awards, and regular speakers in the UK and overseas  Рwe are now viewed as one of the most expert providers in the UK.
