Small businesses should take on graduates, expert says

Published: Wednesday, 09 September 2009   Category: Employer News

Small businesses could easily manage their finances to find the money to gain from the extra skills a graduate can bring to a company, an industry figure has said.

Writing for the Mirror, Instant Offices founder Rob Hamilton claimed that despite the economic conditions at the moment, it would be a good idea for smaller enterprises to provide graduate job opportunities.

Increasing the workforce for a less demanding salary than those with years of experience, graduates can also bring enthusiasm and a fresh look on the industry to the job, Mr Hamilton added.

He continued: "Offering employment to graduates can give them an invaluable experience in the workplace, which can provide them with an opportunity to kick-start their own career. Just because you are a small business, don't be put off by thinking that employing a graduate will involve a lot of work."

Training Journal recently reported that university leavers who have secured a job with a small business in the West Midlands will receive extra training to help employers make the most of their talent, thanks to a Graduate Works scheme.
