Graduate jobs on the increase

The Association of Graduate Recruiters have today revealed figures that show that graduate recruitment in the UK reached a three year high in 2013 with a continued demand for young recruits which is likely to drive a 10.2 per cent increase in graduate posts this year.

This is fantastic news for those students looking to complete their University studies this year as well as graduates from previous years who are yet to secure a permanent position.

According to the AGR, job prospects for students this year will be better than at any point since 2010, with around 23,000 vacancies likely to be on offer throughout the UK.

The Jersey graduate recruitment marketplace echos that of the UK with a big demand for graduates across all industries with the financial services sector being the most buoyant in terms of actual job volumes.

If you are graduating this summer and would like to discuss your options or have any friends or family members who require advice on the opportunities available to them, please get in touch with Park on 01534 871666 or email
