Specialist recruitment company, Cast UK, will be encouraging graduates to find out their natural strengths by completing a specially developed personality quiz, the Cast UK Profiler, at this year’s Graduate Recruitment Fair hosted by The University of Manchester on 11th and 12th June.

As one of the 190 exhibitors attending the 2014 graduate recruitment fair at The Armitage Centre in Fallowfield, Manchester, Cast UK, which specialises in recruitment for procurement, buying, supply chain and logistics, will be encouraging graduates entering the job market  to consider how understanding their personality types might guide them in career decisions.

The CAST UK Profiler is a simple, easy-to-use online tool that can be accessed via mobile and desktop devices to ascertain personality strengths and give a steer on what kind of person you are using headers like ‘motivator’, ‘composer’ and ‘architect’.

Commenting on the innovation, managing director of Cast UK,Wayne Brophy, said: “We’re really looking forward to launching the Cast UK Profiler at the Graduate Recruitment Fair in Manchester. It’s helpful for graduates to give thought to careers roles that naturally suit their personality types. While these aren’t rigid and the format is deliberately simple and accessible, it may be helpful guidance when taking the first step on the career ladder.

“We run a Graduate Training Academy within our company and recognise that securing bright, ambitious talent is about being innovative, having an attractive proposition and being able to communicate in ways that inspire graduates, while supporting them through what can be quite an overwhelming time in their lives.”

Those wishing to find out a bit more about what makes them tick can talk to the Cast UK team on stand 32 or visit: http://profiler.castuk.com and can use the hashtag #castukprofiler on twitter to share their findings.
