“Discovery have delivered exceptional results in positioning Samworth Brothers as a student recruiter of choice and through the competency based selection process culminating in a final assessment centre, we can be sure we are securing the best talent. We are always delighted with the efforts Discovery go to in order to understand our business.”
What makes our process different?
It all starts with understanding how an Industrial Placement student can benefit your business and what commercial outcomes you wish to achieve from the programme. Equally we work with you to ensure the experience for your student hire combines a rich learning experience and highly positive to maximise the retention after leaving University.
Discovery understands how important these formative years are in shaping the early careers of the next generation of business professionals so we implement the same rigourous process as we would if you were recruiting graduates.
We focus on potential alongside their skills and behaviours, which is particularly important when you’re recruiting those with little experience of the working world.
Our end-to-end solution for industrial placement recruitment has multiple evaluation stages, so you can be confident that you’re hiring students with the stretch and potential to be your future superstars expertly and efficiently.
How does our Industrial Placement Recruitment process work?
Will Industrial Placement Recruitment work for my organisation?
Industrial Placements are a great way for an organisation to raise their employer profile and create a steady flow of future talent. Our process can be particularly useful for businesses that want to:
- Introduce fresh ideas and perspectives to work on key projects
- Recruit placement students, but are not sure how
- Trial having students in the business before undertaking graduate recruitment
- Support the local growth of talent for strong economic success
