Fresh thoughts on graduate recruitment, with Alisdair Barr

Show Notes

In this episode we talk with Alisdair Barr of Striver about graduate recruitment for professional services firms. Amongst a range of interesting topics we discuss the professional year recently introduced to financial planning, retention of the graduate talent one has recruited and trained, along with some tips Alisdair has to share about recruiting graduates.

Alisdair also shares some interesting details about what’s been involved in rebranding his company, including the “Remarkable Truth” encapsulated in his business. It’s a thought provoking concept.


The previous interview conducted with Alisdair on this podcast is Episode 20. It’s well worth a listen because the topics covered in the two episodes are largely different.
