We are quickly approaching the end of March and for the majority of students in their third year this means you are incredibly close to a) the dreaded dissertation hand in, b) exams, or c) both.

It’s also the time of year where the majority of undergraduates start applying for graduate schemes or roles that they can pursue after higher education.

We understand how difficult it can be to choose the right opportunity after graduation. It has been reported over the years that nearly half of UK graduates do not end up working in their field of study. In addition, 96% of graduates say that they have switched their career path by the age of 24.

When picking a graduate role, it’s imperative that if you are at a cross-roads with what you want to pursue as a long term career, you pick something that offers you development, progression and of course the earning potential that you deserve.


I think I speak on behalf of a lot of graduates that are now in recruitment when I say that we ‘fell in’ to this career path. It’s not considered the norm after university (as you can’t get a degree in recruitment…)


The Cambridge Network also released an article on this earlier this month, explaining that  for many people a career in recruiting is something they stumble upon. As soon as they do, they know it is the right career for them as they have a desire for adventure, the enjoyment of no two days being the same – and the drive to earn more income.

At Barrington James we want to give graduates to opportunity to come and develop with us, and not be pigeon-holed with what avenue they want their career to head in. If you are a graduate reading this, have you ever considered a role that enabled you to build a career in the UK before relocating to another office overseas?

This will give you not only the taste of a new environment, but the opportunity to add a new dimension to your career path.

Our relocation program enables you to relocate to one of our following office locations after receiving training and development at our UK HQ in Surrey:

  • New York
  • Raleigh, North Carolina
  • Frankfurt
  • Malaysia
  • Singapore

You will receive full training and development in our UK office with a mixture of on-desk and in-classroom training for 12-18 months before relocating to your desired location. As a business, we focus purely on the Pharmaceutical and Life Science space filling mid to senior level placements for our clients on a global scale.

Our approach is consultative and the service we offer to our candidates and clients are something that we consider tailored and premium. We are looking to interview graduates immediately to join us either in the summer or after graduation.
