We make it easy for tech
start-ups to hire talented juniors.

Employing young people can be stressful. You want candidates who have good instinct, intuition and resilience and that's hard to get right. Our helpful experts and clever software take that pain away.

We help hundreds of UK tech start-ups get grad hiring right!

Tech start-ups require a different 
of grad recruitment.

1. Traditional graduate recruitment is broken.

1 in 3 grads who leave university are mismatched to roles. Traditional graduate recruiters charge high fees, are sector agnostic and focus on the graduate's existing skills. 

Employers subscribe to our service knowing they will receive candidate profiles created in a fair and consistent way.

2. We've banned extortionate hiring fees.

Poor retention costs the tech industry £1,891m each year. A traditional recruiter will charge 10-15% of the starting salary.

It's time to scrap percentage negotiation and large hiring fees, and move with the times. Our subscription model means you can replace candidates at no additional cost. We think this is the fairest way to charge for juniors.

3. Training and career development for young people.

Directly in line with the government’s UK Industrial Strategy the main aim of the DigitalGrads Academy is to help young people develop the skills they need to do the high-skilled jobs of the future.

The DigitalGrads Academy is non-elitist and open to all recent graduates, so it's not just those with 'bank of mum and dad' who get the opportunities.

4. It's fast, efficient and reliable.

Posting job ads is unreliable. Sifting through CVs is slow. The result of recruiting this way is often disappointing.

You can create a shortlist of talented, hungry candidates who are actively looking to work for a tech start-up. Our record is shortlist to hire in just 3 days!
