Graduate labour market continues to improve


This annual graduate labour market survey from Association of Graduate Careers Advisoty Services reveals that the vast majority of the leaders of higher education careers and employability services believe that the graduate labour market improved further in 2015.

More than four in five (81.5%) of respondents to the AGCAS Heads of Service Graduate Market and Student Engagement Survey agree that the graduate labour market was more buoyant in the year to 31 July 2015 than the previous year. Heads observed an increase in graduate opportunities in five key sectors: information technology; accounting, banking and finance; business consulting and management; marketing, advertising and PR; and engineering and manufacturing.

Findings from the survey also show that there was a noticeable increase in employer engagement with careers fairs in the year to 31 July 2015, particularly small and specialised careers fairs. Careers service engagement with students prior to their final year also continues to increase.
