More and more retail stores closing means graduate
vacancies are harder to come
10,000 retail outlets are forecasted to close
this year which will result in many retail graduate jobs being
lost in the sector.
Joshua Bamfield, director for the centre of
Retail Research, warned that independent retailers are going to be
the worst hit in 2011. This all comes after the latest BRC-Bond
Pierce Retail Jobs Monitor revealed that the number of hours worked
by retail employees had dropped by 1.5 per cent at the end of 2010,
equating to around 10,300 full time jobs compared to 2009.
Retailers that aren’t part of a major
corporation may suffer because of the lack of financial backing,
and after suffering since the start of the recession things in 2011
are still not getting much better. Although the retail sector is
week for graduate jobs there are still many sectors that are
showing promise entering 2011 and are helping the recruitment of
graduates, predominantly sales recruitment and IT recruitment.
