Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in food and drink may be interested to hear that a guide to the higher education system, aimed at helping employers find the best candidate, has been launched.
The Association of Graduate Recruiter's (AGR) Demystifying UK Universities offers recruiters advice on how to approach graduates and how to operate in tandem with institutions and their career services.
It also provides insights in to the different types of candidates, different universities produce and should be a useful tool in negotiating the degree-level job market which contains some 270,000 individuals.
Carl Gilleard, chief executive of the AGR, said: "Higher education in the UK can be a minefield for graduate recruiters - especially those who are new to the profession.
"With a record number of young people due to graduate from 120 universities this year it is going to be tougher than ever for employers to develop effective strategies for finding and selecting the best candidates."
This news comes soon after a survey revealed that the number of permanent staff appointments made by UK recruitment consultancies increased in March, with growth picking up to the strongest level since October 1997.
