Hays ranked as top 30 undergraduate employer

Hays has been ranked 27th in the UK and Ireland’s top 100 undergraduate employers by users of Rate My Placement, the undergraduate work placement review website, and is the only recruiter in the top 30.

The ranking is based on the views of students who took part in Hays’ undergraduate internship scheme. In the 2013-14 academic year over 90 interns completed placements in Hays offices across the UK and Ireland. 

Sandra Henke, Director of People & Culture at Hays said: “Recognition by organisations such as Rate My Placement is testament to the hard work we have been doing to achieve our goal of becoming a leading graduate employer. We are the only recruiter in the top 30 and faced competition from leading consumer names.

Over the past year we have welcomed 90 interns into our business and have been delighted with the feedback we have received from the students and their managers, and hope that many will return when they complete their studies.

Our mission is to become an employer of choice for high calibre individuals and this success demonstrates how far we have already come. We offer interns access to our world-leading training and development programmes and many return to us as graduates, benefiting from a structured career path and regular feedback to help them reach their potential.”

The ranking is based on factors including the average rating given by reviewers on the website and the range of intern and graduate schemes offered.
