About Instant Impact

Instant Impact is an award-winning intern & graduate recruitment agency, specialising in placing the UK’s top students & graduates into jobs at fast-growth Start-ups, Scale-ups & SMEs.

Instant Impact was founded in 2011 by two 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. In other words, we are changing the face of graduate recruitment, making Start-ups & Scale-ups the first choice for top talent.

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