Highest graduate job growth since 2008

Published: Friday, 03 January 2014

According to a Confederation of British Industry survey employment for young people is expected to grow by the greatest rate since 2008.

In this survey of 325 employers, who collectively employ more than one million workers, most of them expected to employ more workers in 2014. The survey suggested strongest growth among graduates and apprentices.

A better economic forecast has meant that companies feel more positive about long-term growth and see this as a key time to expand their work force to maximise opportunities.
