Expert recommends continued investment in graduate vacancies

Published: Tuesday, 21 December 2010   Category: All Graduate job news

Businesses need to innovate in order to be successful at the moment and this should be borne in mind during the recruitment process, an expert has suggested.

Noel Quinn, head of commercial banking for HSBC, said that innovation should encompass a number of areas, including product and technology innovation, changing business models and opening up new markets.

He also highlighted the benefits to businesses of offering graduate trainee jobs.

"I saw an engineering company who have had a policy for many years of trying to have at any point of time 200 to 250 graduate engineers working in their business," Mr Quinn revealed.

The graduates helped to bring new products to market and enabled the company to provide an "excellent" service.

"They base those engineers all around the world. They now have a unique product in the market," he added.

One company that is currently recruiting graduate engineers is global firm Reinshaw, which recently announced its intention to employ 125 students and graduates by summer 2011.
