Graduate jobs in Milton Keynes


That first job as a graduate can be really challenging – you’ve got a degree but haven’t got any relevant work experience – which you’ll never get until somebody offers you a job!  We hear this all the time at Ascendant Recruitment, but luckily, we can spot a bright, talented graduate a mile off and our experienced consultants work hard with the many prestigious companies on their books from across Milton Keynes and we can get you that foot in the door! 

We have worked with some of the most prestigious employers in Milton Keynes, including BSI, Rightmove, Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen, Dentons and the ICAEW.  And 40% of the temporaries we’ve employed since 2003 have gained, with our help and guidance, permanent positions after successfully completing thier temporary assignments - so it’s never too early to start looking!  In fact we think the trend of organisations looking to hire from their temporary labourforce is one that will accelerate over the coming decade, so showcasing your skills as a temporary worker is one of the best career enhancing activities you can do.

One of the best ways to get some relevant work experience is to do some temping roles during your holidays from university.  Not only can you earn more money (for books and rent), it gives you the opportunity to gain relevant work experience by building up your CV and adding new skills, plus you’ll have a foot in the door with a company that you already know you enjoy working for.  Many of our candidates have started off as temporary workers and gone on to become permanent having impressed the employer! Once you’ve proven how good you are as a temporary worker, we’ll be able to approach employers on your behalf to get you the perfect graduate role! 

Find out for yourself how one of Ascendant Recruitment’s temps, Chloe, started her career as a temp for Mercedes Benz five years ago after A Levels and now has a successful career in Marketing. You can read her story here.
