Regroup, Recruit and Rebuild your workforce with support funding from the University of Derby Driven programme.

We understand that that this can be a very worrying time to recruit, and so to ease those fears, we can support Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire SMEs with £1000 support funding when recruiting any individual that graduated from a University within the last 3 years.

That’s not all, the UoD team will handle all of the role promotion, application sifting, and shortlisting free of charge, along with providing value added on-boarding support. If you have any questions or would like to make an enquiry, please contact driven@derby.ac.uk

"We’ve been working with the University of Derby for many years now, but recently, very much successfully in the Graduate Recruitment Programme. We have to be on top of our game, we have to be competitive. We have to have the best designers”

- Managing Director of Smith of Derby Limited, Bob Betts
