Permanent Hire Services

Our permanent-hire recruitment service offers employers a simple and effective solution to filling graduate vacancies.

Huge Talent Pool. Direct access to over 200,000 ambitious, enterprising and work-ready recent graduates available for roles in all industrial sectors and for a wide range of occupations. Many of these come from our own University of London colleges and institutions, but through our nationwide network of contacts in universities, public sector organisations and commercial recruitment channels we have candidates from much further afield too. 

Tailored Recruitment. A large selection of graduates tailored to the vacancy you have available. We advertise in the relevant sources to attract applicants specifically interested in and relevant to your opportunity. As candidates apply, we pre-screen, test, interview and shortlist them against your criteria to send you only the strongest ones to consider for interview. 

Risk Free. No charges if we're unable to fill a role for you and only a competitive flat-rate when we're successful, plus there are no additional set-up costs and no advertising fees

A simple, cost-effective process for employers of any size


Our consultants will take all your instructions and requirements.

We will present you with a recommended shortlist for interviews. Of course, the decision on interviews and making a job offer is entirely yours.

We will create job advertisements, contact our database of students and recent graduates and list the opportunities in the most appropriate job boards. We will also liaise with universities offering relevant courses to achieve a good candidate pool.

If you do find your ideal candidate, then there is only a short and simple agreement between yourself and the University to complete.

For internships we provide advice and support to employers and interns to help both parties make the most of the experience. Over half of the interns we place receive job offers from their employers.
