Job vacancies expected to rise by 10%


A report published this week by the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) shows that employers are expected to recruit more graduates this year, with the number of vacancies predicted to rise by 10.2% in 2014.

The forecast represents a potential 23,000 jobs on offer to graduates.

The figures follow research published last month, which indicated that the number of jobs available to students graduating in 2014 will rise to a seven-year high, with  applicants who have previously undertaken internships, placements or work experience for the organisations best placed to take the roles

Big growth sectors for graduate recruitment this year are identified as IT and telecommunications, energy, banking and financial services.

The AGR surveyed more than 200 employers in the UK across 19 sectors. It was conducted online between December 2013 and 10 January 2014.
