The FINANCIAL — Knight Frank has recruited 18 graduates for its UK Autumn 2010 Graduate intake following a successful Graduate recruitment process.
"The Graduate recruitment team promoted the scheme at a number of key Universities and hosted open evenings at 55 Baker Street for potential applicants. As a result, Knight Frank received more than 800 applications," Knight Frank says.
After a rigorous screening process, 150 applicants were invited for first stage interviews, held in early January 2010 and from these, 54 were shortlisted for the final interview stage.
During this process, Knight Frank met some exceptional candidates and made 18 offers, all of which were accepted.
In September 2010, 14 graduates will be joining the London Commercial scheme, with two each joining the London Residential and London Planning Scheme.
Nick Thomlinson, senior partner, Knight Frank said: “This year we refreshed our marketing campaign to attract the very best new talent. Our graduates are the lifeblood of our business and we were delighted to have received a really fantastic response. We look forward to welcoming the 18 new UK graduates in September. We have also recruited graduates for global placements across the Group. Thanks go to the Graduate recruitment team together with all the Partners involved in contributing to the continued success and reputation of Knight Frank schemes and the 100% acceptance rate achieved.”
