Graduate Job sector Reports
Over 40,000 new jobs were created across the UK's top 21 industries in September 2007, according to new figures.
The results of the monthly Adecco/Mandis Job Creation Index (JCI) indicated that 20 per cent more jobs were created last month in comparison to the same period in 2006.
And the figures revealed particular growth in the health and social care and transport and distribution storage sectors, news that could potentially benefit those looking for graduate jobs in those areas.
The chief executive of Adecco, Rene Schuster, said: "We have seen a positive rise in job creation this month. Despite the credit crunch that is affecting city and financial jobs, a number of key sectors have shown strong efforts in job creation this month."
Other sectors seeing a significant growth in job creation included leisure and recreation and retail and wholesaling, while both textiles and industry and engineering saw a reduction in the number of new positions recreated.
The results of the survey highlight a big increase in the number of jobs created from the previous month after August's JCI revealed just over 25,000 jobs were created, a two per cent fall in relation to the same period in 2006.
