With the average age of their workforce exceeding 40+ years, Huf UK recognised that they needed to enforce radical change by recruiting graduates as part of a long-term growth and succession-proofing strategy.
Based in the heart of the Black Country, an area renowned for manufacturing, competition for top graduate talent was rife. Despite being an international organisation, Huf only has one UK base and had never recruited & developed graduates before. As a result, they required external expertise to better understand how employing graduates aids succession planning and helps to build a strong talent pipeline.
Founded in 1908 in Velbert, Germany, Huf develop and produce mechanical and electrical locking systems, tire pressure monitoring systems and telematic systems for the automotive industry worldwide.
Today, Huf has approximately 7,800 employees located in 14 countries worldwide. Some of Huf’s customers include Aston Martin, Bentley, Jaguar and Rolls-Royce.
