Why graduates?

It's good to employ graduates

We should know - we do. Every member of the Yorkshire Graduates team has a university degree and we find that it makes the Yorkshire Graduates office a bright and dynamic place to work.

But don't just take our word for it, over a third of employers recruiting through us believe that employing graduates help their business grow. We asked a few of our regular users to tell us why employing graduates is great and we found that there were a few attributes that were stated universally.

Enthusiasm was top of the list, with many companies saying that graduates bring to the workplace a lot of energy and forward thinking.

They also found graduates to be good team players with the ability to learn quickly.

Our clients also told us that graduates brought new skills to their business, which helped increase productivity.

More degree courses than ever before now include a period of work placement, and with the majority of students having to supplement their income with part-time work, graduates are entering the workplace with a good level of practical and commercial experience to enhance their academic knowledge.

Graduates also bring a high level of skills that are essential to compete in business. Ever-evolving information, engineering and scientific technology requires the latest skills, research and knowledge. Globalisation of markets requires a high level of strategic skills, including planning, negotiation, communication and languages.

By improving graduate retention in the region we are retaining the knowledge and skills of graduates to contribute to the success of our local economy. Companies who take on graduates through Yorkshire Graduates have identified clear business benefits in terms of:

  • Growth
  • New skills
  • Staff capacity
  • Productivity
  • Diversification
