Instant Impact

Instant Impact is an award-winning early careers recruitment company, specialising in placing the UK’s top emerging talent into jobs at entrepreneurial companies, from early-stage start-ups to disruptive scale-ups & forward-thinking large businesses.

Instant Impact was founded in 2011 by 2 Cambridge graduates, Rob Blythe & Felix Mitchell, after being underwhelmed by the range of opportunities on offer to them. Since the beginning, Instant Impact has been dedicated to showing graduates that there’s more out there than corporate graduate schemes. These days, we also work with young talent throughout their early career, from students looking for summer internships to candidates with 2-5 years of experience.

Everything we do, from interviewing our candidates to sending them congratulatory gifts on placement, is guided by our company values.
