Graduate Your Business
20th July 2006
Does your business have a project or development you never have time to undertake? Do you want to take advantage of up to date knowledge, enthusiasm and drive? If the answer is yes, the Caithness and Sutherland Enterprise (CASE) Graduate Placement Programme could be just what you're looking for.
CASE is offering a limited number of places to businesses in the Caithness and Sutherland area. In addition to recruitment support, CASE also offers an attractive salary subsidy and a training budget for your graduate plus on-going support during the year long placement.
Donna Booth, a development manager with CASE, said: "We are keen to give local firms the opportunity to employ graduates of HND or above, and to give graduates the opportunity to develop their careers in the Caithness and Sutherland area."
"The programme has been very successful in previous years and we've had graduates in sectors from hospitality, engineering, I.T., tourism, aquaculture and many more - all of which have gone on to full-time employment either with their host firm or another."
Participating businesses agree that the graduates and the projects they undertake really do make a difference. Iain Baikie of K P Technology Ltd., a high-tech company based in Wick, said: "The Graduate Placement Programme has been the key factor in our success. Our continuing expansion benefits both the business and the graduate."
If you feel your business could benefit from some new blood and fresh ideas, contact Donna on donna.booth[AT]hient.co.uk or by calling 01847 805213. Places are limited so please act soon.
