Your business

Your business relies on the quality of your people. So why leave it to chance?

Attracting quality people requires access to the best and brightest and a proven, risk-free process to establish the best fit for your business.

  • Each year Grad Mentor comes face-to-face with nearly 3,000 final year financial planning, accounting and finance students.
  • The best are then selected to undergo Psychometric and behavioural interviews.
  • Then we handpick the top of the available future talent and introduce you to them at our events.
  • Our placement guarantee provides you with the peace of mind to employ your next staff member.

How our events work

  • Prior to the event you will get the profiles, bios and photos of all students who will be in attendance. You will also receive a print out of this when you arrive.
  • During the first 30 minutes you get an opportunity to introduce your business. Many businesses have had opportunities come from this.
  • Then for the next 2 hours you will experience a “Speed Networking” format and get to meet up to 20 pre-selected and pre-coached students while enjoying drinks and canapés.
  • The evening finishes with 30 minutes of open networking.
  • All you then need to do is identify who you want to see in a more formal interview.

What happens after the event

  • Should you wish to continue discussions with any of the students you met we will provide you with their CV and results of their Psychometric exam.
  • We will then organise an appointment to meet with the student(s) of your choice.
  • Remember, there is no obligation to go any further should you not find the right graduate for you.

Come and meet our chosen grads at our next event

We run a series of mini ‘Speed Networking Events’ where up to 20 financial planning or accounting firm representatives and up to 20 hand-selected graduates get the chance to present themselves and discuss future opportunities
