Set up in 2013, multi-award winning, Smart Resourcing Solutions provide graduate recruitment and employability solutions to employers and universities. For employers, we design assessment materials and support with outsourcing delivery such as screening and video interviews.
For universities, we run assessment centre simulations ranging from small scale events for Widening Participation students to large scale events for thousands of students. Our largest scale event was for over 2000 students over eight days and we have run events for as many as 450 students in one day.
We work with the course leaders and the Careers Service to embed our activity within the curriculum which ensures strong attendance rates and a significant impact on student learning. We hire out football stadiums to run our events which is ideal from a logistical point of view but also allows students to work off campus, helping them feel like they are attending a real assessment centre. The impact of our events is huge - we see an immediate increase in student confidence and aspirations and this ultimately leads to more placement and graduate jobs secured.
