pessimistic media reports on the number of companies closing their
door to university leavers this summer, a new report shows that
there are still 10,000 UK graduate jobs to be taken up.
High Fliers conducted the survey of the market on behalf of the
Times and found that the careers services in the universities of
Manchester, Cardiff, Bristol, Warwick, Oxford and Edinburgh
collectively had 3,200 employers still looking for graduates.
If these figures reflect trends across the whole country, then High
Fliers estimates that there are currently 40,000 graduate job
vacancies which need filling.
Ross Huffen of the University of Leeds Careers Centre told the
newspaper: "It is important that graduates and students know that
there are still opportunities out there. Few employers have
completely cancelled their graduate schemes."
Conflicting reports from the Guardian previously said that some
40,000 graduates will be struggling to find a job in six months'
time due to the economic downturn.
