Supermarket giant Asda is planning to build a new outlet in the Scottish town of Forfar, which could be good news for those looking for graduate jobs in the area.
Graduates with an interest in the construction sector could take up one of the 270 jobs which are to be created from the expansion.
The firm has not yet submitted a formal application for planning permission and will first consult locals to see what they think about a new store, which would bring a boost to the recession-hit economy.
Alex Galbraith, director of Deanway Development, which is to be involved in the build, said: "Our development plans will support the ongoing and future economic development of Forfar and make a major contribution to the local economy, including up to 270 in-store jobs as well as temporary construction jobs through the build."
The government recently said it is planning a £6.2 million investment to widen the M25 motorway, which could create thousands of new construction jobs to be taken up by graduates.
