Early Career Recruitment Details

Why recruit Early Career employees?

Early Career employees are a key part of a workforce. Having gained some experience in the workforce, they’re usually 2nd or 3rd jobbers who can bring the benefits of apprentices and graduates, but with more practical experience and business exposure.

Early Career recruitment helps to:

• Plan for Succession

• Build a talent pipeline

• Ensure your business maintains the knowledge from baby boomers due to retire soon

• Fill skills gaps

• Address talent shortages

• Bring in talent who can hit the ground running

• Improve processes by drawing upon previous experiences

• Invest in the future of your industry

How does it work?

Much like our apprentice and graduate recruitment, our process centres around demonstrating a candidate’s cultural fit, current capability and future stretch. We do this by using a robust, multi-stage process that is tailored to the role you are recruiting for.

Services we use in the process include:


• Attracting, searching & screening candidates

• Telephone or video interviews

• A virtual or face-to-face Discovery assessment centre – including group tasks and a competency-based interview

• Virtual or face-to-face assessment centre design – often including group/individual tasks and a competency-based interview

• Facilitation of the client assessment centre either onsite, in our offices or virtually

• Making offers and rejections, and providing feedback

Get to the core of your candidates


Don’t just rely on candidates’ CVs. See first-hand the raw potential they have to deliver excellence for your business. 


A candidate who has been great for another business doesn’t automatically mean they’ll be great for yours. Ensure your employees are the right fit.


Your new recruits will come with a multitude of transferable skills – they may not have done the exact role before, so ensure they have the capability for your role.

Identify behaviours

People are driven by behaviours, find employees with the behaviours to drive forwards your business & their role.

Identify capability

Identify the current ability of early career employees to ensure they are able to deliver for your business from day one.

Identify stretch

You’re recruiting talent for the future; know that candidates have the stretch to grow & become your future leaders.
