ConSol Partners, the fastest growing UK IT Recruitment agency, has launched its sixth graduate scheme in just three years, with a further two in the pipeline. In an era where intakes have dwindled, coupled with record graduate unemployment, ConSol Partners is bucking the trend by offering aspiring individuals their chance to join the corporate ladder.
Founded in 2008 and situated at the iconic Institute of Directors offices on New Broad Street, ConSol Partners has witnessed unprecedented growth by recruiting in niche markets across the internet supply chain.
Marc Cohen, founding director, insists graduates are key to ConSol’s future. “We’re big advocates of training and development. Young, hungry graduates with the right attitude can excel in our business because of our willingness to invest considerable time in their learning. It’s important for our culture and growth plans to employ the next generation of talented consultants, and this is a proven scheme – former graduates are now some of our biggest billers.”
The graduate scheme consists of an eight-week ‘academy’ where the selected candidates, typically between six and eight individuals, are given expert training by the award winning and ex-Pareto Law manager, Russell Beswick.
“The scheme we implement is arguably the most comprehensive I have seen in the recruitment industry, and we give graduates all the tools to succeed rather than throw them in at the deep end. I myself joined ConSol because of its overwhelming commitment to learning and development, and the graduate scheme is a major part of this strategy.”
ConSol will be scaling its commitment to graduate hiring throughout Q4 and 2014 with intakes set to rise to one per quarter.
