A new report has suggested that the number of finance jobs in London has hit its highest level this year, which could be good news for graduates looking to enter the sector.
The Morgan McKinley employment monitor showed that October saw a 15 per cent rise in potential London graduate jobs in finance, compared to the previous month.
Candidates securing a position at a City firm in the month did so after an average 56 days of searching, giving impetus for graduates to remain dedicated when looking for job.
Andrew Evans, managing director of Morgan McKinley's financial services division, said: "The City jobs market has and continues to see a general trend of improvement each month and October's figures are consistent with this pattern."
Charlie Ball, deputy research director of the Higher Education Careers Services Unit, recently told the Times that the public sector should find a way to boost the graduate jobs it provides if it is to secure fresh talent in the next few years.
