We’re accustomed to tech firms promising disruption in how homes are bought, let, sold and rented: now one is pledging to transform recruitment to the industry, too.
Gradfeed - an employment platform for students who want to get into the property industry - has been created by Gerard McVeigh and Robert Hall who have been running a property recruitment business for four years.
Students can research employers, keep up to date with the latest industry news and events and secure interviews with businesses across the UK.
It has also partnered with a number of RICS-accredited universities, industry leaders, LandAid and CREation.
A launch statement says employers will be able to use the database of student profiles to communicate their business offering to a dedicated audience as well as enabling direct communication.
And it adds: “Gradfeed will aim to lead the way in providing a cost and time-effective graduate employment solution that works for all.”
According to co-founder Gerald McVeigh: “Gradfeed aims to inform, educate and facilitate direct communication between students and employers alike. We want to slicken up the recruitment process and we believe Gradfeed will become the go-to tool for students looking for an opportunity and for employers looking to strengthen with fresh, graduate talent.”
And Robert Hall adds: “The property industry as a whole has a great spectrum of opportunities for students from a wide variety of backgrounds and one of the key aims of Gradfeed is to make the industry more diverse, more inclusive and more accessible for graduates and entry-level students.”
