Government move 'could boost Manchester graduate jobs'
Wednesday, 10 September 2008
A government department which is to relocate to Manchester could benefit from the talents of graduate job hunters in the region, it has been claimed.
The (PHSO) has begun a recruitment drive prior to opening a new office in Piccadilly in January, reports the Manchester Evening News.
Speaking to the newspaper, James Johnstone, director of customer services at the PHSO, explained one of the reasons for choosing the city is the region's pool of individuals capable of taking on graduate jobs.
He said: "One of the key reasons we chose Manchester as the location for our new office was the high quality workforce and large number of graduates available."
The body aims to attract a "wealth" of talented individuals to help change the NHS complaints system, he added.
Meanwhile, those looking for graduate jobs in the public sector might be interested to know that Somerset county council claims to offer the largest training scheme in the country.
According to Yeovil Express, the council has appointed 21 people this year.
