Graduate vacancies offered by employers are almost 9% higher for entry-level jobs in 2014 compared to pre recession figures.
The number of graduate vacancies has increased by 11.6 per cent this year which is now higher than anytime since 2008. A new report suggests that over a third of employers recruiting graduates have increased their graduate recruitment in the last six months.
Between 2007 and 2009 the employment of graduates decreased by over 20%. Engineering and industrial companies are included in the sectors with the highest graduate openings available.
Based on a poll of 18,000 final year students, the High Fliers report also shows that for the first time in four years, the median starting salary for new graduates in the UK in 2014 has increased to £29,500.
