We travel across the UK to meet graduates and hear about their graduate stories. Below are 6 grads we found working in London; find out how they got their role, what it was like applying, and all about their continual progression since. You can learn about what a company is truly like both inside and outside of the office before you even apply.

We spoke to Alex and found out that his role in PPC Marketing was ‘something that really stood out’ for him. What he enjoys most about Periscopix is the people: he told us 'I love the people that I work with and everyone works really well together’.

Rakim started 2016 as a Consultant with Nicoll Curtin. He told us all about working to targets, the world of Recruitment and the career progression that is on offer.
3. Populus: Clerkenwell, EC1
We met the Populus team in Islington to find out what working in a Market Research agency involves. Phillipa told us about travelling across the UK and conducting in-depth interviews. As a graduate, Phillipa really enjoys that she can ‘see an idea all the way from the ground up’.

We went to film Linux Recruit and spoke with Luke about his career since joining the company as a graduate over two years ago.
