“The graduate jobs market is currently facing one of its toughest periods. Not only are job openings down, but the average salary for graduate roles has also decreased by over 3% since last year. There has never been a more pressing need for accessible resources to help the UK’s young people navigate such a challenging landscape. That’s why we’re delighted to be partnering with Graduate Coach to deliver this timely course, which we hope will give graduates across the country the lifeline they need to launch and excel in their careers.”

Sir James Reed, CEO at Reed

“The Keep Britain Working campaign was launched in April 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, with the objective to preserve jobs and protect livelihoods.

Young people and recent graduates have been particularly impacted by the recent changes to the labour market so we’re glad to have Graduate Coach on board as a partner and look forward to working together as part of a collaborative approach to help support graduates in their journey into employment”.

Great! Awesome course with great tips to help a graduate deal with the process of looking for a job

Excellent. Extremely well structured, concise and to the point, and very good materials to use.

I loved it. I am fully satisfied with the course.This course is very helpful for developing how I can face an interview properly.

Ecellent: engaging, actionable, effective. Really well pitched for graduates. Up to date information that guides those with little understanding of what requires and challenges effectively those who may believe they already know best practise.
