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.”
Prior to engaging in in-house training, all successful graduates will undertake training in fundamental selling skills with training specialists Pareto.
Paul Drew, marketing director at Pareto said: “As a Randstad owned company, our unique understanding of the organisation places us in a strong position to source exactly the right talent for their graduate programme. We’re looking forward to supporting Randstad in their vision to continue shaping the world of work,”
Mark Bull added: “The hands-on roles on offer will see candidates engage in all areas of the recruitment process. And the selling skills they will gain from training with Pareto will help set them apart as the expert recruitment consultants of the future.”
