History of Milkround

Our history

Milkround has been at the forefront of graduate recruitment for 16 years. As a pioneering digital service launched in 1997, we became the first choice among recruiters for finding the UK’s best students and graduates. Acquired by News International ( now News UK group) in 2006, we are backed by the publisher of the UK’s leading newspapers and websites, including The Times and The Sunday Times. News UK group offers greater campaign reach for our clients across market-leading graduate and experienced hire recruitment solutions.

Data capture and targeting

At Milkround, we gather candidate data, and manage effective, targeted campaigns on behalf of our clients. Our dedicated candidate marketing team visits leading universities to acquire and engage with the highest quality student and graduates. We collect and organise that information so clients can successfully target according to the characteristics and qualifications of the roles and schemes they are looking to fill. 

For the last seven years, High Fliers Research has rated Milkround as the UK's most widely-used graduate recruitment website in their annual UK Graduate Careers Survey. Our proven ability to match Britain’s top students and graduates with the best UK employers has worked for more than 10,000 clients.


Career Resource

Today, our mission is clear; that is to provide career confidence to students and graduates across the UK. We believe we will remain as the leading graduate recruitment website through continuing to put engagement and quality at the heart of our graduate recruitment proposition.
