• Beyond brexit

      Hooley, Tristram; Institute of Student Employers (Institute of Student Employers, 2019-04)
      The original Brexit timetable has fallen by the wayside. Given how the process to exit the EU has gone so far, this seems unlikely to be the final twist in the story. We are at the end of the beginning of Brexit rather than the beginning of the end. Negotiations about Britain’s future relationship with Europe will go on for years, possibly decades. And that is saying nothing of the way in which Britain’s own politics, policy and law might develop once it is untethered by EU regulation. The question for members of the ISE will be how this may make a difference to the way in which student recruitment and development works.

    • The different skills of apprentices and graduates

      Hooley, Tristram; Institute of Student Employers; University of Derby (Institute of Student Employers, 2019-04)
      In recent research we have noticed a growing engagement with apprenticeships amongst ISE members. In our Student Development Survey 2019 employers report that on average they have scaled up their recruitment of apprentices by 56% since 2016, while the number of graduates has only increased by 9%. Only time will tell if this heralds a new era in student recruitment, but the fact that 58% of respondents say that they are developing apprentices to do work that would have previously been done by graduates suggests that times are changing. However, as the apprenticeship route develops it is important for employers to think carefully about when they should recruit graduates and when they should recruit apprentices.

    • Student recruitment survey 2020. Challenge and resilience in the year of Covid-19

      Institute of Student Employers; Institute of Student Employers (Institute of Student Employers, 2020-11)
      This report presents the findings of the Institute of Student Employers (ISE) annual recruitment survey. Its discussion of the changes in the recruitment of graduates, school and college leavers and other non-graduate hires and interns and placement students takes place against the backdrop of Covid-19 and an approaching recession. It is hoped that the data and insights presented in this report can help organisations that recruit young people to continue to bring new people into the labour market. The research is based on a survey of 179 ISE employer members distributed across a range of sectors and geographical locations. ISE employers are typically larger organisations, with structured recruitment processes, who are often able to offer better pay and training and development than smaller employers. The respondents reported recruiting a total of 46,068 student hires during 2019/2020. This represents around 6% of all young people entering the labour market during that year.
