Want to recruit a graduate but don’t know where to start?
A free service from The University of Manchester has been designed to help smaller businesses connect with top graduates in Greater Manchester
Many SMEs need to recruit graduates into their organisation but don’t know the best way to go about this. Should they place an advert in the local
paper? Or use a
recruitment agency?
Eight years ago The
University of
Manchester recognised
that smaller
organisations wanted to
recruit graduates and
that graduates wanted
to work for SMEs so it
established the
Manchester Graduate
Internship Programme
(MGIP) as a free service
for Greater Manchester businesses.
Run by a highly experienced recruitment team at The University of Manchester Careers Service, vacancies are advertised to a targeted group of graduates who have indicated that they want to stay and work in the Greater Manchester area.
The team will then source, filter and help businesses select the very best candidates. The services are offered completely free of charge as long as the vacancy meets the following criteria:
1. The position is based in the Greater Manchester area
2. It is a graduate-level position
3. It is for at least 4 months and the salary offered is competitive (the average MGIP salary is £17k)
The team will also help draft job descriptions and have recruited on behalf of a diverse range of organisations: from boutique business consultancies to Premier League football clubs, a global container shipping line to PR and marketing agencies to wealth management companies.
Just as there are no typical organisations, there are no typical jobs. Graduates have been recruited as project administrators, rating controllers, account managers, marketing executives, trainee paraplanners, event organisers......the list is endless and to date over 1,000 internship roles have been filled.

If you are looking to fill a vacancy with a graduate then why not call or email a member of the team on 0161 275 2465 or recruitment@manchester.ac.uk
