8 small companies hiring graduates right now

Just because a company is big, it doesn't mean it's better.

At a small company, rather than being one of hundreds (or even thousands) of newbies, you are one of few, meaning you'll be more likely to work directly with higher level staff, be given responsibility from day one, and progress your career faster than you would at a larger organisation.

The companies below are all hiring graduates right now - but you better hurry, as they don't have many spaces to fill!
