Brexit recruitment boom for grads
15 October 2018
Graduates leaving university next summer will find a plethora of jobs in the public sector, according to figures complied by ‘The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers’.
It found that there will actually be more vacancies in the public sector than there are in the accountancy and professional services, for the first time in a generation!
PwC, voted best graduate recruiter for the 15th year in a row, said it is looking for 1,350 graduates this year. However the civil service fast stream wants to hire a record 1,500 graduates for our post-Bretix world. Teach First, the NHS and MI5 are also upping their game. Teach First want 1,750 recruits, the NHS 500 graduates for its management programme, and MI5 needs 200.
That all means that there are 5,268 vacancies in the public sector and 4,850 in professional services. Overall there are 22,168 vacancies among the top 100 employers, up 8.2% on last year.
