Expanding technology company Postcode Anywhere announces its inaugural Graduate Day which takes place on the 18th July at Worcester Rugby Club.

The itinerary has been devised with the help of The People Experts™, a local recruitment specialist that utilises social media and team exercises to find and assess candidates to make sure the employer and the employee are a perfect fit. Between 30 to 40 graduate candidates will be attending from universities throughout the West Midlands including Aston, Birmingham City, Keele and Worcester.

For Postcode Anywhere the day presents an opportunity to share its vision and growth plans with potential employees that are interested in technology as a career. The company is currently preparing to move to extensive ‘state-of-the-art’ corporate headquarters on Worcester’s waterfront in Diglis Basin.

Tom Leavesley, The People Experts™ said: “The day is not just about putting the candidates through their paces. It’s more focussed on providing an insight into the culture of Postcode Anywhere to see if they have the right attitudes and mind-set to fit in. Candidates will be given the opportunity to showcase their skills in an informal environment. Our mantra is ‘recruit for attitude and train for skill’.”

Postcode Anywhere concurs that the day is about demonstrating what it’s really like to work at a cutting-edge technology company. A career in IT can be very rewarding and the company has an expanding sales and support team. And for those candidates possessing creative skills such as PR, graphic design and copywriting, the marketing department is also growing rapidly.

Postcode Anywhere’s managing director Guy Mucklow, feels that giving candidates an opportunity to learn a little about the culture of the organisation in a more relaxed environment is a really good idea. He said: “Formal interviews often result in the candidate telling an employer what they believe they want to hear. Asking potential employees to take part in team exercises is fun and provides a much better insight into how they will fit into our team. It also lets candidates see the friendly face of the company and decide if they want to be part of our success story.”

The event starts at 12.00 noon on Wednesday 18th July and is being held in the Cecil Duckworth Suite at Sixways Stadium home of Worcester Warriors. The dress code is smart/ casual and notepads and pens will be provided. A buffet lunch will also be served. To register for the event email:pcarecruitment@thepeopleexperts.co.uk
