The number of new graduate jobs fell for first time since the financial crisis as leading recruiters downgrade hiring plans due Brexit uncertainty says a survey of the UK’s leading 100 graduate recruiters.
The survey showed that private sector employers cut their recruitment by an average of 10% in 2016-17 compared with the previous year.
Comments from Martin Birchall, the managing director of High Fliers Research, which conducted the survey are crossing the wires via The Guardian -
- Its clear from our latest research that the uncertainty caused by Brexit has already hit the graduate job market,
- Although employers in a number of key industries and business sectors are hoping to increase their graduate recruitment again in 2018, the outlook of many recruiters remains cautious for the year ahead
- UK's accounting and professional service firms, financial services companies and investment banks scaled back their recruitment targets by 17% following the Brexit vote.
