Graduate recruitment budgets back on the rise in 2014

10 Mar 14  | Recruitment News

New research has indicated that graduate recruitment is looking up in 2014, as over a quarter of employers have increased their budgets allocated to graduate employment - the highest proportion in three years.   

According to, the research from High Fliers also revealed that employers are most likely to employ graduates from Nottingham University, even though it isn't deemed to be the best university in the country.

In fact, the Times Good University Guide lists Cambridge and Oxford as the best universities in the country, but they only came fourth and third respectively in terms of graduate employment. Moreover, Nottingham only came 24th in Times's guide and Manchester University came 25th, yet is ranked second for graduate employment.

Dr Paul Greatix, the registrar at Nottingham University, called the news "terrific" and said the research shows that the university is providing employers with the talent they need.

"It reflects continuing investment in the student experience at Nottingham, and the focus we have on providing the best possible support for students as they prepare for a challenging job market," he said. "It's also a testament to the fantastic work of our academic staff and professional services, and the calibre of our students," reports

Tammy Goldfield, from Manchester University's career service, added that the graduate job market appears to be recovering, as last academic year the university saw the amount of advertised vacancies increase by seven per cent.
