Let’s cut to the chase

We work alongside you to deliver customised solutions that bring out the best in your business to attract the brightest talent the industry has to offer. Our commitment to integrity, diversity, education, positivity, quality and originality forms part of our service guarantee, which is embodied through our credibility, efficiency and approach to best practice.

We create cost-effective marketing and attraction strategies that increase student awareness and graduate applications. Our team helps you design your recruitment processes to ensure candidates have the necessary technical and professional skills to transfer into committed and engaged employees while increasing retention among new recruits.

Above all, we specialise in developing graduate and internship strategies, provide health checks on existing programs and facilitate graduate workshops. With our university clients, we help with business development training, industry engagement programs and graduate employability initiatives.

At Brightworks, we believe your business is one of a kind. So it’s only fair that your early careers strategies are customised and tailored to your individual objectives. We offer bespoke packages and will meet with you to discuss a proposal that is right for you.

Our process is highly collaborative and we strive to deliver an experience that leads to long-lasting results.

1. Discovery session
Let’s chat! We’ll arrange an initial discussion with key stakeholders to identify your challenges and objectives at no cost to you.

2. Proposal
Following our discussion, we’ll put together a customised solution to determine the scope of the project. From here, you can decide if you want to do it all, or just part of it. After your approval, we’ll agree on how and when to proceed.

3. Kick-off
Let’s get these wheels in motion! To start, we’ll recap primary outcomes and deliverables before agreeing on an approach. At this stage, you
will be asked to provide any background information, relevant data and program materials.

4. Check-ins
Once we’re underway, our team will schedule regular meetings and identify key milestones that will allow us to record, review and track progress.

5. Project review
Upon completion, Brightworks will arrange a final meeting to officially wrap-up the project and finalise our handover.

So, where to from here?
