2015 to Mark Large Growth in Graduate Jobs at UK’s Top 100 Employers


Graduate recruitment in 2015 is to reach its highest level at Britain’s top businesses in more than a decade and those graduating this summer will be paid higher salaries, claims a study by High Fliers Research.

The data has found that the UK’s top 100 employers, which includes the likes of Arcadia, BBC, Cancer Research UK, Grant Thornton, Lloyds’ and Tesco, increased the appointment of graduates by 7.9 per cent in 2014 – the largest rise in four years – and this year’s vacancies for university leavers are set to rise by an extra 8.1 per cent.

Indeed, it claims “an unprecedented 13,049 paid placements are available” as more than “four-fifths of the UK’s leading graduate employers are offering paid work experience for students and graduates this year”.
