Experienced Professionals

At The Graduate Project we do more than just graduate recruitment, a degree never expires and if you have Qualified By Experience (QBE) we are still keen to hear from you!

We have a dedicated team that support candidates with both experience and a degree/qualification.

We have received great interest from our clients as there has been a huge increase in people going to University later on in life.

First, Second and Third Base 

Our consultants often help graduates, get into their first position after University. Our candidates tend to come back a few years later when they have progressed and are looking for a new role again. If we have already found you an amazing role, give your consultant a call and we’ll be happy to help you progress even further.

Degrees Never Expire

We do have a lot of interest from candidates for our vacancies, but we are often asked if there is an expiry date on a degree. More and more clients are asking for educated professionals that can come into a senior position within their organisation and therefore your degree and willingness to learn still matters. Some of the information you learned ten years ago may have developed, but the thought process will still be the same.

Specialised Qualifications

Don’t have a degree? That’s not a problem, we can help.

Are you working towards or do you hold a qualification in a specific area?

Please see a small list below as an example:

  • Accountancy – AAT / CIMA
  • Human Resources – CIPD
  • Marketing – CIM Qualification

If you already have a few years of professional experience under your belt or you’re working towards or have gained a professional qualification and are looking to make your next career move, we offer a wide range of roles designed to help propel your career forward.

Not only do we provide recruitment services for those looking to stay within their previous specialism; we also offer help and guidance on how to make the switch from one sector to another.

Do I need a Professional Qualification?

Gaining job related qualifications are not only good for your CV but it helps to keep you up to date with new trends and keeps you refreshed! Although we are pretty sure that you are confident with your current skill set it is always advantageous to add another string to your bow.

Thirst for knowledge/access to more

Starting to add new qualifications opens up further access to courses and development. For instance, in HR once you complete level 3 in HR practice you can move to Level 5 HR Management.

Career Opportunites

Your organisation may need you to hold certain qualifications before you can progress. This could mean the more qualifications you hold the further opportunities you have to progress. Opening these opportunities gives you a better chance of securing the role that gives you work life balance.

If you are currently employed, your organisation may offer financial assistance or the time for you to embark on qualifications.

Showing your employer that you are eager to learn new skills and gain a qualification also highlights your commitment to the sector and shows that you have a natural hunger for progression. This commitment can lead to your employer opening further avenues for you and a potential for a better salary package.

 

Networking

What you know can often lead to who you know!

Attending professional courses allows you to meet other individuals in your industry as well as industry leaders. The people you find on professional career courses may have skills and links from other sectors which again broadens your connections once you engage with them.

 

Self - Fulfilment

Knowledge is power, more money is great but above that, the feeling of accomplishment must trump them all. Getting a qualification will keep you motivated in your career and life.
