Hello. Graduate Recruiters Network (GRN) was established by Dan Hawes, Co-Founder of the Graduate Recruitment Bureau (GRB) in 2009.
GRN is designed as an invitation-only members group exclusively for clients of GRB and other carefully selected Graduate Recruiters, HR Advisors, HR Business Partners, Recruitment Managers, Recruitment Directors, Talent Partners and Talent Leads from a broad spectrum of companies and sectors across the UK and Europe. We have over 2,700 members.
This informal group provides a confidential and relaxed environment to discuss current topics in graduate recruitment, share knowledge and help everyone reach their graduate recruitment goals.
Every March, June, September and December we invite up to 30 members to a GRN Masterclass event in the City of London. We spend two hours hearing brief presentations from University Heads of Careers, researchers, thought leaders and practitioners and then spend the majority of the time discussing and debating the key issues.
Social Mobility Masterclass: Unlocking New Potential
Ensuring you attract the best talent to meet the fast-moving business challenges ahead often requires taking another look at what "good" looks like for your organisation.
HR Masterclass: Measuring Our Impact on the Business
All business functions need to deliver on measurables and HR is no exception. HR metrics can include engagement, retention, attraction, gender pay gap, overdue reviews or D&I. So, how can HR professionals go one step further and deliver impact? This was the topic for our most recent GRN Masterclass.
Kindly hosted by ICAEW, London on 10th December, members were treated to insights from both Higher Education and Inhouse recruiters by Lynne Hamilton-Gow from ICAEW and Ami Bartrip from Metaswitch. Jenny from GRB did a fantastic job opening and chairing the event and also welcoming for the very first time our livestream viewers who are based outside of London.
In attendance to hear these insights were senior HR managers from forward-thinking recruiters such as Amazon, BDO, Knight Frank, Liberty, John Lewis Partnership and Siemens. After an engaging Q&A session, GRN members were enlightened with practical advice to go back to their teams and their next board meetings. So, what were some of the key takeaways?

Skills Masterclass: Brains for BREXIT
Change is in the air! Not just with our relationship with Europe but on a much grander, macro-economic scale. Forces that are shaping our economy and ultimately our place within it are creating huge challenges as to how we proceed in the workplace. A huge topic to tackle but GRN members were guided through this maelstrom by the excellent Tim Skeet and his presentation entitled: Brains for BREXIT: Graduate skillsets your company need for a post-BREXIT world.
