A new study shows that job prospects for graduates in the UK today are the best since the onset of the financial crisis.
The BDO Employment Index that represents companies’ hiring intentions during a three month time period increased to 108.8 in June to 109.6 this past month. This is a sign that hiring in the United Kingdom is going to further increase for the remainder of the year.
Likewise, the study showed that the number of UK companies that want to hire this year rose at its fastest rate in 16 years.
Peter Hemington from BDO in a statement to the press: “The good news is that the unprecedented growth we’ve seen in UK employment this year looks set to continue, providing this year’s university graduates with a welcome dose of good news in terms of job and salary prospects.”
