Our Mission:

TO BE THE BEST QUALITY PROVIDER OF GRADUATE RECRUITMENT SOLUTIONS AND ENSURE YOUR STUDENTS HAVE EVERY ADVANTAGE TO SECURE LIFE-CHANGING GRADUATE LEVEL JOBS

To ensure they have every advantage, our mock assessment centres and practical employability workshops give students the opportunity to practice typical graduate recruitment processes and exercises in a safe and positive environment before the real thing.

Prior to launching Smart Resourcing Solutions, Managing Director Sophie was responsible for graduate recruitment at retail giant The John Lewis Partnership. Moving from 79th to 9th in the Times Top 100 Graduate Employer rankings during her time with John Lewis, Sophie and the Smart Resourcing Solutions team used this expertise to develop a range of realistic and reliable assessment materials for universities and their early careers recruitment processes.

With recognition from the Institute of Student Employers and the CIPD for our work, we listen, guide, educate and assess to design and deliver employability interventions that give students every advantage in the competitive jobs market.

We have an Occupational Psychologist as part of our team to validate materials and ensure they are fit for purpose, prioritising student wellbeing throughout the whole experience.

Our mission to be the best quality provider of graduate recruitment solutions won us the award for Most Outstanding Graduate Recruitment Specialists in the 2017 Global Excellence Awards.

We love designing new materials and regularly work on new courses across a range of subjects, including Engineering, Creative Arts, Humanities and Fashion subjects.

Putting quality, passion and high quality in the delivery of everything we do, you’re in safe hands with Smart Resourcing Solutions.
