What do we do? When it comes to the attraction, assessment, engagement and retention of the best early years talent, the answer is: pretty much everything. Whether managing an end-to-end multinational graduate campaign or a single part of your recruitment process, we can help you with the full scope of your recruitment initiatives.
When it comes to continuously improving the way you source and engage with the early year’s talent your organisation needs to thrive, we have the technological tools, the expertise and the networks you’re looking for.
With 30 years’ experience in the early careers sector, we’ve built up an unrivalled network of contacts.
We have our own marketing channels
We’re the only Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) business with our own student marketing channels, giving us the unique opportunity to engage with the most talented students.
TARGETjobs is the leading student careers site in the UK, with over one million registered students and graduates. Meanwhile, TARGETcareers FUTUREWISE is our school leaver careers platform, with over 149,000 registered students.
We have a network of university contacts
We’ve built strong connections with universities across the UK. It’s through these relationships that we’re able to access the top talent for our clients. Our TARGETconnect platform is used by student services at more than 70 UK universities, giving us unique access to career-orientated students.
We have an international reach
We don’t just operate in this country; we also recruit internationally for roles across Europe, Asia-Pacific and the USA. We attract international students to work here in the UK too.
We put the candidate experience at the heart of what we deliver. We firmly believe that successful recruitment relies on engaging with each and every applicant from the very start of the recruitment process.
We make sure your candidates are always fully informed, fully engaged and move swiftly through the application process by:
Our Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is candidate focused, reliable, and accessible, allowing both candidates and recruiters to access information on the move via computer, tablet or mobile. It’s a critical tool in managing volume campaigns. Here are just a few of its key features:
Our bespoke surveying technology can be used to collect feedback at every stage of the candidate journey. After submission of an application, testing, interview and assessment, we set up trigger feedback requests across our client projects. This feedback is invaluable, allowing for continuous improvement of the recruitment process throughout the campaign cycle. We can also easily design, and administer, bespoke surveys for your key audiences, providing real-time analysis and reporting in a range of formats.
“I have been so impressed with the TARGETrecruit team and our Client Manager in particular. Their knowledge is second to none and it’s an absolute pleasure working with them. They have worked so hard to understand our company culture and we have complete faith in the service they provide to all of our candidates.”
“Going into our fifth year of partnership we are incredibly impressed with the work TARGETrecruit has once again delivered in setting up our graduate campaign successfully. Working together towards a common goal with tenacity and positivity ensured we were set up for success to attract and engage the best graduate talent that the market has to offer.”
“We have been working with TARGETrecruit for five years now. They've been instrumental in helping us to build our brand in the external graduate and school leaver market. They've also helped us to establish ourselves as a female-friendly employer and we value the professional relationships their recruiters have built with our recruitment team and our business.”

TARGETrecruit Search is our recruitment agency, focusing on connecting recent graduates to companies that recruit the best talent for permanent roles. Specialising in specific, hard-to-fill graduate roles, top-up recruitment and ad hoc entry level positions, we take the time to really understand your organisation and actively find people who can thrive and develop long term within your business.
Throughout the process we remain the direct point of contact for all candidates and we focus on delivering quality rather than quantity of candidates for a shortlist.

TARGETrecruit also manages the Tier 5 Intern scheme, a Government Authorised Exchange (GAE) scheme designed specifically to allow undergraduates and graduates from overseas to gain experience working in UK industry. It provides UK employers with the scope to deploy the brightest and best talent from overseas on key initiatives and to learn crucial skills to take back to their home country.
As a licensed, A-rated overarching sponsor, we work directly with employers (and their immigration advisers) by providing sponsorship for non-EEA nationals that they have identified for their internship programmes in the UK.
Full information can be found on our dedicated Tier 5 page.
