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 if they recruit a recent University of Derby graduate!

And that’s not all, our 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.

"This team effort that we’ve got, graduates play an important role in informing and passing that baton along!”

Managing Director of Smith of Derby Limited, Bob Betts
