Revolutionising Graduate Employability
Readygrad is a proud leader in the graduate employability space. We see a world where every graduate has the right skills and experience to pursue the career(s) of their choice. We lift the employability of tertiary students and graduates through relevant and industry-informed work-readiness training and work experience programs. We work closely with students, graduates, universities and education providers, and our industry partners to help increase the employability of our next generations.
Readygrad’s origins date back to 2012 when it was created by Owen Firth, a former recruiter & education entrepreneur, to offer work experience programs to graduates who could not break through to their first career step. At this time it was known as Performance Careers and was a division of a larger business, Gradability, also founded by Owen.
In 2017, Gradability acquired Readygrad, a business started by former graduate recruiter Rohan Holland, to train students and graduates to prepare for the job search process and the workplace. Performance Careers and Readygrad merged to create one of Australia’s leading graduate employability specialists, delivering a broad suite of training and work experience solutions to students, educators and graduate recruiters.
In 2020, Owen Firth acquired the merged Readygrad from Gradability to give Readygrad the agility and focus to realise its vision. Today we are as passionate as ever about raising the bar on graduate employability, whether we are providing scalable work experience opportunities to the students of a university partner, delivering the hard truth about the recruitment process through webinars & online learning, or helping a corporate partner to better engage with the right graduates.
