GradTouch

Bio

GradTouch provide the complete end-to-end solution for SMEs wanting to attract, assess and ultimately hire graduates. Its platform offers businesses time and efficiency savings, as well as the convenience of having everything managed in one place. Currently no company in the market provides the media services, backend software and the dedicated subdomain landing pages for SMEs and without the right resources, bringing graduates into smaller companies can be labour intensive and expensive.

We’re excited to be bringing Maven on-board as I know they will be a real value add investor. Their wealth of experience in helping businesses grow is something that really attracted us to working with them and applying for to the NPIF fund. Looking forwards into the rest of 2018, I know that Maven’s input, coupled with our current team of employees and investors will lead to a great year for GradTouch.

Growth Journey

Each year over 50,000 employers hire around 400,000 graduates. The Guardian 300 highlights the most recognised graduate employers, with their job vacancies accounting for between 6-8% of all graduate jobs. This leaves a large majority of the market competing for high quality applicants with less resource for sourcing and attracting them, a problem GradTouch looks to solve.

Launched in 2013 by founders Zac Williams and Joe Twigg, GradTouch now works with over 200 employers to promote and distribute their career opportunities to its network of over 200,000 graduates registered with the site in the UK.

The investment will increase the number of jobs by 50% in GradTouch’s Manchester office and will further support the company’s growth plans.
