Why engage Early Careers support?

09 March 2022 By Jennifer Scheinder, Solutions Director Early Careers at Hays

Successful job interview

It’s no secret that recent events have caused a shift in the labour market. Talent is harder to come by than ever before and effective recruitment has never been more important.

More than ever, we’re seeing a need for total talent management beyond typical managed service solutions. The challenges organisations face today are not likely to disappear any time soon, so it’s necessary to start thinking about how the next generation of employees can be engaged and this is where Early Careers comes in.

Future-proof your talent pipeline with expert advice and support on how to hire for ability and cultural fit not experience, even in competitive and cost-constrained environments.

A few points to consider:

  • Differentiate your brand to drive competitiveness
    Leveraging market intelligence and expert insight we’ll support you to develop an authentic early careers value proposition and experience that helps you stand out from the crowd.


  • Generate more relevant applications to meet hiring targets
    We’ll help you to identify the right school leaver and graduate profiles, and then partner with you to develop the right attraction strategy, plans, assets and tools in place. Developing data-driven sourcing, assessment and engagement processes to meet your organisation’s early career talent needs.


  • Reduce dropouts
    Refine and implement best practice from application to day one. We’ll support you to maintain relationships and engaged brand advocates to minimise the number of suitable candidates you lose along the way.


  • Risk Retain the right future talent
    Effective onboarding and development to support the transition from education to employment, alongside market benchmarking, reduces your attrition.

One of the key issues we find with our clients is time and lack of it. In an environment as fast paced as Early Careers, it’s so difficult to find the time to refresh your programme before the next season begins. This delay can lead to an out-of-date approach to hiring. By not looking at your current attraction, retention and development strategies, you may be missing out on the key needs and wants of the current generation. Hays Talent Solutions Early Careers is here to support you on this journey.

From digital and campus attraction campaigns, screening support and virtual or in person assessment we can supplement your in-house graduate or apprenticeship hiring teams. Or thorough strategic workshops, process design and delivery of end-to-end programmes, our Early Careers experts can support you to take the bold next step in your thinking.

Covering the full graduate and apprentice recruitment process, or only the aspects where you need more resource or advice, we can support you to tackle attrition, diversity and skills-shortages.
