Graduate jobs in Milton Keynes and Northampton

 

Graduate jobs

Finding a job when you have just graduated can be a challenge, especially if you don’t have a lot of commercial experience. Over the years we have worked with hundreds of bright, talented graduates to secure opportunities with some of the best employers in Milton Keynes, Northampton and the surrounding areas.

Many of the graduates we place into permanent positions registered with Ascendant Recruitment before they had graduated. We work with many undergraduates during their university holidays, offering them temporary assignments in office support roles.

If you haven’t considered temping, as well as the obvious benefit of earning money, here are a few other benefits:

  • You’ll get a foot in the door: Many of the candidates we work with started off on temporary assignments and impressed the employer so much they were taken on permanently!
  • Build up your experience: Temping is an excellent way of building your CV and learning new skills, making you more attractive to a future employer.
  • Access to a huge recruitment network: Once you have proven how good you are as a temporary worker, we will be able to approach employers on your behalf to help you secure your perfect permanent job.

If you're not convinced about the doors temping can open, read Chloe's story! She started out as a temp for Mercedes-Benz five years ago following her A-Levels and is now enjoying a successful career in Marketing. You can read her story here.
