Leading independent research bureau Trendence UK host the largest annual student careers surveys in the UK.
This year, almost 20,000 school students (from over 1,000 schools) and over 75,000 undergraduates and recent graduates (from 120 universities) have taken part.
We’ve captured a broad range of opinion from them on the early careers market, including awareness and attractiveness of employers, relocation and mobility information, how and why students are making choices about careers, key demographic intel including: social profile, gender, year and subject of study, ethnicity, nationality and (new for 2019) data on sexuality and disability.
Our team of MRS accredited researchers and analysts cut this data to get bespoke findings unique to individual employers. We consult with you on your competitive position, attractiveness amongst target group students, methods of engagement, help you to develop a school and campus strategy, help you to recruit a more diverse profile and get you to understand where and why you are missing out on relevant and ‘right fit’ talented young people.
Our methods can include quantitative, qualitative and focus group research, we offer year round data support, we have our own survey platform and can execute bespoke surveys or snap polls getting you the answer to a single issue of strategic importance or help you solve a problem. We are adept at reviewing a range of data sources as well as our own, offering you practical and actionable advice to help you build an informative picture and develop an early careers strategy that really works.
Trendence's data is the source of the sector awards at the TARGETjobs National Graduate Recruitment Awards.
The Trendence UK Graduate Study also sits behind The UK 300 rankings, with 100,000 copies of the publication distributed to the UK’s top universities every year.
