Application for Graduate Employer of the Year Award

As the final and most prestigious award, Graduate Employer of the Year - sponsored by The Creative Agency For Employers, Hodes - seeks to identify best practice in graduate recruitment. This award will consider how organisations attract, develop and retain graduates and how they have delivered their promises consistently during the last year.

You have been invited to enter this award because you have already been shortlisted at the TARGETjobs Awards - so this is an exclusive invitation.


Submissions must answer all questions and must not exceed stated word limits.

All organisations submitting entries for the Graduate Employer of the Year Award must also encourage at least 6 recent graduates to submit a Graduate Response by the same closing date of 5:00pm on Wednesday 28 February 2018.

Please forward the link below to your recent graduates to ensure that at least 6 complete the form by the closing date:
