Our six-stage approach

Graduate Services

The Grasp way

Our mission is to provide graduates the opportunity to gain exposure, experience and knowledge by offering graduate programmes in conjunction with local companies here in Gibraltar.

We design, create and support bespoke graduate programmes tailored to your company culture and needs. Empowering your business to acquire, develop, engage and retain talent.

Our graduate programme defines a specific learning pathway managing your graduates’ continuous professional development. The learning pathway is identified throughout all departments of your business and offers a bespoke programme per graduate. 

Programme Type What is it? Company Expectations Graduate Expectations
High-Potential Management
Targets a small number of high calibre candidates with opportunities for fast-track career progression.
For graduates to contribute to key strategic planning after just a few months at the company.
These graduates are in demand, so you will need to appeal to their individual needs with the package you offer.
Cross-Department
This strategy allows graduates to spend a few months in each department to evaluate where their best skills lie. Best for mid-large organisations with various departments.
To determine which department graduates fit best.
To gain exposure to various departments to test skills, knowledge and best fit.
Functional
Specific graduate role to support a particular department. Your recruitment search will focus on certain skills or attributes.
To strengthen a department that is in need and hire a graduate which will become an integral part of your team.
Graduates expect an accredited training and development package e.g. ACCA/ICSA/ CIM(A)/CII.
Low-Level
For business departments with high staff turnover e.g. CS, you would recruit various graduates all in the same position.
Helps you identify the employees who can progress through the ranks.
Graduates seeking employment which aren't able to identify their preferred career path.
