Chinese graduate recruitment fair coming to Manchester

Published: Friday, 23 November 2007   Category: Career Advice

Graduates with knowledge of Chinese languages and culture are being encouraged to attend the Chinese Graduate Fair in Manchester next week.

Over 30 companies from China will be there to offer graduate jobs and work experience in China, where the economy is expanding rapidly.

Amanda Wood, head of international career development at the University of Manchester, said: "The Chinese Graduate Fair at Manchester provides a bridge between graduate supply and demand, as well as an opportunity for us to celebrate the UK's Chinese student population, and Chinese culture itself."

Ms Wood also said the threat of a skills shortage in China is "very real" and that the country needs graduates to sustain its "rapid economic growth".

Chinese Consul General Mr Gong will open the fair next Wednesday.

Meanwhile a new survey by Technojobs has revealed that demand for graduates with skills in SAP will be high next year.

The report also said that there will be a high pay growth for SAP contractors.
