About me

Thank you for visiting my website. I am Matthew Parry, Director of SME Graduate Employment. I specialise in connecting graduates and undergraduates with small to medium sized businesses (SMEs). Covering internships, placements and permanent positions. Across most industry sectors and job types, and in all areas of the UK. It’s just me in the business. I have kept it that way so anyone who deals with me gets the benefit of my years of experience- I don’t need to delegate anything.

You can see loads of recommendations from other students and graduates who I have helped (to the right, or scroll down depending how you are viewing this).

I started my recruitment career in 2005, and over the years I have filled a huge range of job vacancies. From entry level, right up to CEO. And across many business sectors.

Since 2016, I have chosen to specialise in working with undergraduates and graduates. I enjoy this as students and graduates are beginning their career journey and often have a lot of potential, but need a bit of extra help. It’s great to see how many of the graduates who I have found work for have progressed over the years, and have gone on to have very successful careers.

As you will see from my picture, I was once a graduate myself. I didn’t get much careers support when I was at university, and while things have improved hugely in the years since then, there is still much to do. I am glad to be able to help where I can. See the ‘Frequently asked questions’ section above for more information on how it works.

There are a lot of businesses that I already work with, and I speak with new businesses every day. Some of them have not employed undergraduates or graduates before, and I am able to consult with them about what they are missing out on. Others already believe in the importance of working with students and graduates,  but have had difficulty finding the right ones – which is where I help them.

If you are interested in being considered for suitable positions please send your CV to cv@sme-graduates.co.uk together with a summary of what you are ideally looking for.
