Graduates are getting record salaries

The average graduate starting salary will reach £30,000 this year for the first time, and the number recruited by leading employers is set to reach its highest level for more than a decade. According to the Graduate Market report, companies increased their graduate recruitment by 7.9% last year and are set to expand by a further 8.1% this year. Employers in nine out of 13 major employment areas are preparing to take on more new graduates this year, with the biggest increases at public sector employers, accounting and professional services, banking and finance, retailers and the Armed Forces, which together expect to recruit more than 1,200 extra graduates.
