Get to the core of your candidates


Graduates have little business experience. See first-hand the raw potential they have to deliver excellence for your business. 


A great Graduate doesn’t always  mean they’ll be great for you. Find Graduates who are the right fit for your business.


High-potential Graduates could be successful in many different roles. Identify who has the raw potential for your specific role.

Identify behaviours

People are driven by behaviours, find future leaders with behaviours that are congruent with your business & the role.

Identify capability

Graduates are fresh, inexperienced talent – establish their current ability 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.

Are you ready to improve your workforce?

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

“We recruit between 10-15 graduates each year. Discovery really get under the skin of what a ‘Pernod Ricard UK person’ looks like. Every assessment centre we’ve run together has been so successful and the feedback from candidates so positive that we have never felt the need to look for another recruitment partner.”
