If you are a supplier to the graduate recruitment industry, there are a number of unique reasons why AGR membership could benefit your organisation. The following benefits are included in your annual membership fee:
The AGR gives you the opportunity to be a part of the wider graduate recruitment community. We host around 50 networking events a year, which bring graduate industry professionals together to discuss their problems and ideas, and to share best practice. Supplier members are frequently called upon to present on specific topics of interest.
Suppliers involved in the development of graduates are eligible to attend the AGR’s development network meetings, which take place up to three times a year. The meetings provide an open forum in which AGR members can discuss hot topics in graduate development.
AGR's Graduate Recruitment Survey
Our biannual Graduate Recruitment Survey is a vital tool, used extensively by our supplier members, who use it to gain an overview of the whole market, and to benchmark with clients. Published twice a year, the survey provides the most extensive statistics on graduate salaries, vacancy/application ratios, retention and marketing spend.
Graduate Recruiter magazine
Graduate Recruiter is the official magazine of the AGR, published six times a year, providing informed news and benchmarking data, intelligent comment and topical features. All members of AGR are welcome to contribute to the magazine.
AGR runs Masterclasses and Workshops throughout the year, which cover a wide range different topics. Our members are often invited to share their industry knowledge at these events. For supplier organisations, delivering an expertise session is the best method of indirectly promoting your services to recruiters.
AGR prides itself on being the Collective Voice of Graduate Recruiters and Developers. An AGR membership will give your organisation the chance to have its voice heard within the industry.
Latest graduate news, jobs and events
We gather information from across the sector bring you the latest news, jobs and events. As an AGR member, you will not only receive our weekly newsletter, but you will also gain access to our active LinkedIn community, where open debate and discussion is strongly encouraged.
In addition to the above membership benefits, we also offer AGR members a significant discount off the total cost of the following services.
Two major Conferences
AGR members can attend our one day Development Conference in March, as well as our Student Recruitment Conference; the largest event of its kind in Europe; which is held in July. Both events feature industry awards, which recognise and reward best practice in all aspects of graduate recruitment and development. Due to the number of costs associated with running events of this scale, members are subject to a discounted delegate fee.
