Jobs market for graduates bounces back

A survey of 200 employers on behalf of the Association of Graduate Recruiters has revealed that recruitment figures for the graduate jobs market have recovered to reach a record high comparable with 2007. Respondents said that last year they created 21,682 jobs of which 1,422 were unfilled, with such vacancies commonly attributed to applicants being offered a job before they pulled out in favour of a more attractive position with a rival company. The study also found that the companies questioned expect to expand graduate recruitment by 11.9% this year. The largest proportion of new posts was in technology companies (26.7%), followed by the public sector, driven by the Teach First programme (23%), construction (22.1%) and engineering (19.7%).
