HR and recruitment graduate careers advice

A career in human resources (HR) puts you at the heart of an organisation and you’ll be crucial to its success. HR also gives you plenty of choice: employers in every sector imaginable need a HR department, whether that’s one person or a larger team. Alternatively, a career in recruitment could be your cup of tea, especially if career progression and financial bonuses based on your performance sound good to you. Our advice can help you secure a job in both of these fields, whether you want to find out more about careers in HR and recruitment or you’re looking for help on how to get hired.
