Graduate Recruitment & development

 
graduate coaching graduate development people at heart
 
 

Companies who recruit graduates to build a pipeline of talent face a common challenge:

RETENTIOn

After investing time and money in recruiting, developing, and managing graduates, it is highly uncertain whether they will stay and what could make them leave. Whilst there is a lot of support around graduates during their programme, it fizzles out as soon as they start in their first role post-programme. 

 

GRADUATE PROGRAMME MANAGERS PLAY A SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN A GRADUATE’S CAREER

They provide guidance and support throughout the programme. However, they can’t always keep a neutral perspective as they need to balance the business needs with the graduates personal development needs. 

 

“As a graduate programme manager, I’ve always lacked the time to really coach my graduates because of all my other responsibilities. 

I felt frustrated when they left the business after a couple of years, telling me they missed the support they used to have as a graduate".


 

A COACH CAN PROVIDE GRADUATES WITH A NEUTRAL, NON-JUDGMENTAL SPACE.

They can discuss their career and motivations, professional performance and relationship challenges in full confidentiality. A coach will support graduates in the first few years of their career and provide companies with the confidence that their graduates will be listened to and will come to their own decisions for their own and the company’s best interests.

 

HIRING AN EXTERNAL COACH WILL:

  • Provide your graduates with extra support to help them understand what really drives them as they build their career

  • Develop your graduates’ overall confidence and resilience

  • Give you the confidence that your graduates are well looked after even after the programme

  • Free up the graduate programme manager so they can focus on other aspects of the programme

  • Improve the graduates’ retention by keeping them engaged even after the programme

  • Increase your employer brand

 

HOW DO I DO THIS?

I create a tailored programme blending group workshops and one-to-one coaching sessions. Your graduates will receive an in-depth experience of coaching over the duration of their programme and after.

Success lies on the graduates' line managers engagement and the continuity of coaching after the graduate programme is finished.
