The Challenge – attracting top technical talent into the public sector

A startup approached us to find a very specific graduate to join their exciting company. They wanted a graduate with a blend of analytical skills and commercial awareness, and someone comfortable working for a startup rather than an established graduate employer

The Solution – student headhunters searching their friendship groups

Once briefed, we briefed our student headhunters on campuses nationwide who identified those of their friends and peers who had the requisite skillset and who would be better suited to a startup environment

The Result

We quickly found a number of people who were keen to join the startup and who had the right profile. From our shortlist of 5 candidates, one graduate was subsequently hired.
