Graduate vacancies in the UK in 2010 are set to ‘increase significantly’ but on the downside many of the vacancies have already been filled by last year’s graduates.
One hundred top employers found they had increased recruitment targets for 2010 by 12%, equivalent to 1,600 jobs.
Almost half the employers surveyed now expect to recruit more graduates this year than last. The city’s top investment banks are intending to take on a third more graduates than in 2009.
The research also found retailers, high street banks, accountancy and professional services expected to increase their graduate recruitment. But a spokesman for High Fliers Research said: ‘For those who have yet to begin job hunting, the chances of landing a place on the graduate programme in 2010 are looking increasingly slim.’
