Mad About Grads: reasons you should hire graduates for your business

19th March 2019

‘Experience required.’ The two words no graduate on the job hunt wants to read. Here at Prime we invest time into the development of young talent as we believe graduates are as capable, if not more so, than a handful of candidates with ‘experience’.

14th January 2019

If most recruiters were robots, alcohol would be their fuel. Okay that’s not necessarily true. You would be hard pressed to find a Sales Resourcer swigging a pint of Peroni whilst sourcing on the phone, but you can bet your entire month’s wage that when the second Friday hits you’ll find many recruiters down the pub. This month however, there is a change in the world of recruitment. With January being universally known as the most boring month of the …

24th December 2018

  Tis the season to be jolly and nothing makes you jollier than a good old sing a long with family and friends at Christmas time. There are many office debates around Christmas time: What’s everyone’s favourite thing about Christmas? Is Die Hard a Christmas film? Who ate the last mince pie? (It was Kyle btw).

Freshers week 2018: most common fears students have about graduating and why not to worry about them

21st September 2018

At 8:42am today I was happily sat on the bus to work when I turned to see 3 students walking down Oxford Road one in a dressing gown and the other two in fancy dress with what looked like marker pen written all over their clothes.
