It’s a special day indeed when Dude meets another passion-packed soul bringing a fresh approach to graduate careers – someone like 30-year-old, basketball-playing powerhouse, Oxford graduate and boss of Rare Recruitment, Raphael Mokades.
Through sheer hard graft, the big man and his crack squad of able assistants have built a bonzer business that specialises in teaching ‘the rules of the game’ to graduate job-seekers from ethnic minority backgrounds – grads who might not otherwise be feeling the love for – or from – the corporate world.
Rare now works with some of the most switched-on, forward-thinking companies out there (L’Oreal, KPMG, the Guardian…) to transform the face of traditional graduate recruitment into something a bit less pasty and a bit more beige.
Such a ma-moosive fan of Raph’s work am I, that I convinced him to be interviewed for this profile for the Guardian.
Although showing fear is not in Raph’s repertoire, I sensed he was a little anxious initially. But then his friends told me he always talks that fast. Anyways, now he is happy.
