It was essential for us to partner with a provider to help us support our interns. We looked at the market to see who could assist us, and it was clear that Readygrad were leaders in the graduate recruitment space. They developed and tested a few different graduate recruitment models, and we liked their innovative approach. Importantly, there was a great cultural alignment between Vicinity and Readygrad; they understood our business quickly and what we needed to achieve with our internship program - a no-brainer!
