UK: The Graduate Market in 2014
Source: High Fliers Research (UK)
From Press Release:
The UK’s leading employers are increasing their graduate vacancies by 8.7% in 2014, compared with the number of graduates hired in 2013, providing more opportunities for university-leavers than at any time since the start of the recession.
This very substantial increase in graduate vacancies is the biggest annual rise for four years and takes graduate recruitment to its highest level since 2007.
Graduate employers in eleven out of thirteen key industries and business sectors are planning to hire more new recruits this year than in 2013.
The greatest growth in graduate vacancies is at public sector employers, accounting & professional services firms, City investment banks, retailers and engineering & industrial companies which together intend to recruit almost 1,200 additional graduates in 2014.
