Adecco Group, the UK’s largest recruiter, has announced it is launching a graduate recruitment programme with up to 80 places available this year.

Graduate opportunities are on offer across the complete range of Adecco Group recruitment brands – including big name recruiters such as Adecco, Office Angels, Badenoch & Clark, Modis, Spring Technology and Computer People as well as specialist brands like Roevin, Judd Farris and Glotel.

In a novel twist, the group is offering prospective applicants a ‘try before you buy’ approach through their unique ‘recruitment experience programme’. Under the programme, applicants will be invited to attend a free five day residential workshop designed to give them a thorough understanding of what a career in recruiting will entail. The workshop will also explore individuals’ working styles and provide guidance as to possible career options.

Commenting on the initiative Peter Searle, CEO of Adecco Group UK & Ireland, said: “People are the lifeblood of our business. As the UK’s largest recruiter we’re able to offer a broad range of opportunities in a wide variety of markets with outstanding prospects for career progression. This isn’t just about offering a training scheme – we’re offering compelling and rewarding careers to graduates.”

The recruitment campaign, under the strapline ‘The freedom to be’, stresses the flexibility offered by a graduate role with the Adecco Group. More information can be found at
