Why you should get involved in The Bright Futures Societies - as an employer
As a business, we were very new in the Graduate and Internship space and identified early that we would need to partner with an external company with both knowledge and expertise. In addition, we needed to partner with a company that really understood our purpose, vision and values and could translate them into the work that they would do on our behalf. With Bright Futures, we found that match. Caroline and the team have a real commitment to the candidate experience and worked really collaboratively with us to deliver results that surpassed our expectations.
The feedback from candidates was consistently excellent and our Leaders were really pleased with the calibre of candidates: it made for some really difficult decision! From a programme management perspective, I found the support from Bright Futures a real asset: providing advice or potential solutions on one hand, encouragement and challenge on the other. I am really happy we made the decision to work with Bright Futures and would recommend them to anyone looking for a partner to help them find talented students & graduates.

"We are delighted with Bright Futures. They have provided us with all the support and assistance we required to undertake our first formal graduate intake. Our brief resulted in an impressive shortlist from which we have recruited a number of high calibre individuals. Thanks to Simon, Caroline, Kate and the rest of the team"
“We really enjoyed the event (an evening with industry), and the students we met were so well prepared and career-focused, I was really impressed”.
The Staffordshire Bright Futures Society is making an important contribution to the acquisition of key skills by many of our students.
“...It was definitely an innovative way to engage with students and I would be interested in hearing more about the events you are doing”.
“It was a pleasure to work with Olivia and Sam at Trinity College this year, they have proactively organized great events within College as well as being a really effective bridge between myself and college; keenly promoting relevant activities and opportunities to students and highlighting the wider services we offer”.
“We're very proud of our relationship with the Trinity College Bright Futures society. We've been impressed with the professionalism and efficiency demonstrated by the society’s members, and recognize their constant willingness to go out of their way to be as helpful as possible with regards to all events and activities we run. Thank you for all your support”.
"We worked closely with Bright Futures when designing the recruitment campaign for our 2012 graduate intake. We wanted to double the amount of graduates we hired from the previous year, and we also wanted to solve several problems and issues with the selection process that we had encountered in earlier campaigns. Bright Futures provided us with excellent advice, ideas and solutions, many of which we implemented. The results have been striking - we have increased both the volume and quality of candidates attracted, and have been able to put in place a highly effective selection process that is working extremely well. I have no doubt that we will achieve our graduate hiring targets, and fill all of our vacancies with high quality individuals. Bright Futures have played a vital role in ensuring that our graduate scheme recruitment will be a major success story in 2012."
The Bright Futures Society 'Business Champions' competition helped me enormously with my job hunting, it is always such a great project to be able to talk about in interviews. It also remains one of the most enjoyable and challenging things I have done (during and since University!). I still have a frame in my bedroom of all our t-shirts and the Bright Futures certificate, they are very fond memories!
"I wanted inform you that my job interview with the FSA went very well and I have just been offered the position as a summer associate. I really would like to thank you for your help and tips which proved extremely useful in the preparation for the interview (to be honest, before your presentation at Kings really had no idea what to expect from a Competency based interview and without being rightly prepared it would have probably been a disaster)!"
“Over the past five terms Trinity College Bright Futures Society has become an important asset to the undergraduate student body. It has held a multitude of events that have catered for the aspirations of students with a large variety of interests and skill-sets…Together the college and the students have created a society that has enhanced students’ futures and will doubtless continue to do so for years to come”.
"IBM have a great relationship with Bright Futures, for the key reason that they provide bright, high performing, confident students into the Graduate Employment market, by equipping them with key employability skills including: commercial awareness, leadership, negotiation and client focus. The events that are run between IBM and Bright Futures are always guaranteed a good audience and are always well worth the time, effort and financial sponsorship. As a Graduate Recruiter, Bright Futures provides the ideal pool of potential applicants for our Student and Graduate schemes. It's a relationship well worth investing in."
“We have found collaborating with Bright Futures to be very valuable not only in exposing Accenture to high calibre, career focused individuals but also in developing relationships with our target universities. I have always been and continue to be very impressed with the passion and motivation of all Bright Futures members.”
