Graduates face toughest job market since depths of recession

UK employers are expected to increase graduate recruitment by just 2.7pc this year, the weakest outlook since the recession in 2009, according to a study by High Fliers Research.

 

Final recruitment levels for 2013 are likely to turn out worse than forecast, however, as employers have over-estimated job creation for each of the past three years. For 2012, companies had anticipated a 6.4pc rise in graduate recruitment, but instead cut new hires by 0.8pc.

 

The prospect of a second consecutive year of a shrinking graduate jobs market will only focus students’ financial fears, following the increase in annual tuition fees to £9,000 that came into force in September.
