Testimonials

This is our first foray into graduate and intern recruitment and working with the team at King’s has been a pleasure.

King’s provided us with a shortlist of quality candidates for us to interview. Our process included an initial first round where we shortlisted candidates, followed by a second and final interview where the students presented their response to a task relevant to the roles they applied for. The high calibre of the students made the selection process quite challenging for us and is a testament to the quality of teaching and subject matter delivered by UQ.

Our internship program takes in students across multiple disciplines, including marketing, finance, and business operations. Through the program, we aim to give them the opportunity to get their hands dirty and put the knowledge they have developed at university into practical use within a fast-moving business environment. I want to thank the team at King’s for presenting such excellent candidates. They are all very impressive people with bright futures ahead of them.

– Ben Hailes, Director

Our business has had the benefit of some truly great employees from Kings College over the last 5 years, all well-presented, smart and hardworking individuals with true leadership qualities. 

Recently I had the great pleasure of working with King’s for a new vacancy. They supplied me with five candidates (in under a week) of exceptional quality, resulting in a terribly difficult decision/choice over how I could increase my intake capacity. I can only hope that this relationship can continue between our business for many years to come.
