Promising news on the job front for graduates


For the first time in nine years, ‘The Graduate Market in 2019’ – a major report produced by leading independent market research company High Fliers Research – suggests that the UK’s top employers are increasing their graduate vacancies by 9.1%. This will be welcome news for many.

And there’s more, with four-fifths of the country’s top graduate employers offering paid internships and other paid work experience during the 2018-19 period. A total of 13,098 places. This will no doubt be well-received as debate continues around the social mobility of unpaid internships and work experience.

Martin Birchall, author of The Graduate Market in 2019 report and Managing Director of High Fliers Research, said, “Our latest research shows that despite all the continuing uncertainty over Brexit, the UK’s top employers are planning to recruit a record number of new graduates in 2019. The graduate job market dipped two years ago in the aftermath of the vote to leave the EU but recovered well in 2018. The growth in graduate vacancies for 2019 is the highest for nine years and there are more opportunities than ever before for university undergraduates to do paid work experience with the country’s leading employers.”
