Graduate vacancies at five-year high, suggests research

Graduate vacancies at Britain’s “top” employers are at their highest since 2008, new research suggests.
Britain’s 100 “leading employers” have 4.6% more jobs for new graduates than in 2012, High Fliers Research said.
But its study of the 2013 graduate market said there were still an average 46 applicants for each position.
Last month the Higher Education Statistics Agency said it believed 10% of UK students remained unemployed six months after graduating in 2012.
The latest study suggests that the rise in vacancies for graduates is higher than expected.
Earlier this year, the same group of employers predicted that graduate vacancies would increase by 2.7%.
