7 ways graduates can benefit from our exciting, new training programme

Pure has kicked off 2015 by launching its first ever Graduate Training Programme. If you’re a young professional with bags of drive and motivation, why not apply?

Not only are we a friendly and vibrant bunch, but we make every effort to support all of our staff in their careers. Many people stay with us for years. Our regular staff surveys show that people are happy here. We also ask everyone how they think we can improve their time with Pure - we take people’s opinions seriously.

We are looking for graduate trainees at each of our offices in Cambridge, Chelmsford, Ipswich and Norwich. As a trainee you’ll be busy working on innovative projects and develop into a high calibre consultant yourself.

With the deadline for applications on January 30th, there’s no time to waste! But before you apply for a place, let us tell you about the fantastic ways you’ll benefit from training with Pure. We’re pretty sure you’ll like what you read…

1.    More opportunities with a successful business!

Pure is a successful, growing business, working with fantastic clients and candidates across the East of England. We’re recruiting new staff members at Pure all the time and we need new, fresh talent like yours to help us expand further. Because our consultants have such excellent experience, as a trainee you’ll get first-rate guidance and a wide range of exciting opportunities to develop essential skills. And individual quarterly reviews with your manager track your achievements, helping you to progress.

2.    Get the Pure ‘can do’ attitude

Our consultants are known for their positivity and hard work, and they enjoy their work. We’ll support you all the way so you’ll not only grow into an expert in recruitment and the regional job market, but we’ll help you further develop an instinct for hitting targets and taking on exciting, new challenges.

3.     A unique experience

All year round Pure runs a number of campaigns aimed at businesses across all of our counties. From our ‘Best Employer’ initiative, which supports and promotes good employers, and professional seminars for senior executives, to our Women’s Leadership Programme, you’ll develop diverse skills. You’ll also have the opportunity to be part of exciting, unique projects in an industry that is moving beyond straightforward recruitment. 

4.    Understanding corporate-charity partnerships

Pure is like a big family – and a growing family at that! And we’re very proud of our people and their enthusiasm for supporting local charities. Because we believe that businesses have an important role to play in helping good causes, you can get involved in fundraising, and learning about the people we help.

5.    How to build business relationships

Building relationships with clients is fundamental to any successful business. And at Pure we strive to give our clients much more than the average recruitment firm. During training, you’ll learn how to develop and nurture essential relationships with clients over the phone and face-to-face.

6.    How to match people with places

One of the secrets of successful recruitment is matching people to an organisation, not just a job description. We make sure our candidates fit with employers on many levels. From day one, you’ll also develop an instinct for finding job seekers that suit an organisation’s culture, and learn where to find the best talent for a client.

7.    Great salary, rewards and benefits

We offer trainees competitive salaries, as well as a fantastic benefits package and rewards such as bonuses. With 25 days’ annual leave, private healthcare, a matched contributory pension scheme and a busy company social calendar, you’ll get heaps more than just on-the-job training!

Only Pure’s training programme can give you this fantastic array of benefits. Interested? Then contact with Gill Buchanan, Pure’s Director, on 01223 209888 or gill@prs.uk.com.

We hope to see your application very soon!
