Partner Benefits

Priority Listing

Our Preferred Hiring Partner directory is the first place we send our graduates, so you are guaranteed to be front of mind for graduates in your local area.

Student Sponsorship

The only guaranteed way to get your dream employee. Sponsor an employee with a proven track record and let us train them for you. All employer contributions are matched by the APC, providing up to a 50% discount.

Guest Speaking Opportunities

The best way to get in front of active students is to stop in for a visit and speak to our student body. This puts you front of mind and has been proven to win over job-seeking graduates.
