Employer

For almost 30 years GTI have been developing products and services designed to meet the needs of, and bridge the gap between, students seeking early careers advice and employers offering graduate and higher apprenticeship vacancies.

As such, we meet your recruitment needs by helping you engage with more motivated and better prepared applicants. We pride ourselves on offering a comprehensive list of services for employers, which can be adapted and tailored to your organisation and needs. Among other benefits, our products and services will allow you to:

Engage with undergraduates throughout their studies
TARGETjobs

Unique in its multi-channel approach, TARGETjobs provides students with the information and resources they need to find internships, placements and graduate jobs and schemes.

targetjobs.co.uk advertises over 3,000 internships and graduate job vacancies every year. By combining advertising with expert careers advice and peer-to-peer reviews of organisations we can ensure that the 1.7 million students and graduates who use our site every month become the type of candidate you want to hear from. As we track the behaviour of TARGETjobs users, we can identify students interested in your sector and display your job adverts as they browse other sites online.

For employers looking to engage with undergraduates through university careers services, our market-leading on-campus print products offer unparalleled branding opportunities. We print over 300,000 copies of our varied careers publications to over 120 universities in the UK, ensuring you continue to build and maintain your recruitment brand on campus.

We know that the best engagement comes when employers can interact with candidates face-to-face, which is why TARGETjobs offers unique opportunities for graduate employers to meet and interact with undergraduates through a diverse range of unique, specialist events. Specialising in niche hard-to-reach groups, sectors and roles, our market-leading events can promote opportunities across sectors and industries, as well as within individual companies.

TARGETcareers

Aimed at ambitious school leavers, TARGETcareers brings together all the information needed to choose a career, apply to university or join a school leaver programme. As an employer, this means unprecedented opportunities to engage with school leavers actively seeking career options. It also allows you to promote your apprenticeship programmes and degree apprenticeships to a highly receptive audience through a variety of multimedia channels.

targetcareers.co.uk ensures school students get to know as much as possible about your company and your early talent programmes through online employer hubs, which provide a focal point for information on early careers within your organisation. These hubs can include job opportunities, school leaver employee profiles, event calendars videos and more.

Students can easily find you in their searches by region, employer, career sector or job type. What’s more, you can upgrade to a featured job for extra visibility in our search listings.

If you’re looking to contact school leavers directly, our tailored email service gives you access to over 65,000 school leavers, whom you can target vida criteria such as year group, postcode, region, UCAS points, school and career sector.

We distribute 125,000+ free copies of our school leaver publications to over 4,000 schools and FE colleges. Advertising in our publications means you can showcase your programme to a large, yet highly targeted audience.

Want to engage face-to-face with a highly targeted selection of the UK's most ambitious and career-minded school leavers? Find out how to become a sponsor of the TARGETcareers School Leavers' Challenge!
