Encouraging news on the graduate job front


The recently released High Fliers report on the graduate labour market (an annual review of graduate vacancies and starting salaries at Britain’s leading employers) has shown that the graduate job market has recovered to its pre-recession peak, with a 12% rise in the number of jobs for graduates.

The increase is the biggest for four years and follows the significant 23.3% dip that occurred between 2007 and 2009.

It is important to bear in mind, however, that graduate numbers have increased by 85,000 since 2007 and that a further increase in graduate-level jobs will be needed to match the higher number of graduates searching for work.
