We understand that SMEs may be pushed with limited time, resources and finances for recruitment compared with larger organisations. However, we know in UCC that the SME experience for most of our students is just as valuable as those who have worked with larger organisations.

In a recent survey of SMEs (2017) When asked about the biggest challenges they face, ‘finding staff with the right skills’ comes up on top, with 28% of those asked, listing it as their number one challenge.  The 2017 Electric Ireland Smart Business Report sets out to establish the overall economic mood for SMEs today, as well as exploring the mood amongst leaders about their own business’s prospects.  We, in UCC Career Services are here to help you find those staff with the right skills, and gain access to your future talent from UCC.
