Graduate jobs in HR pay the best in London

Published: Friday, 04 February 2011   Category: All Graduate job news

Degree-holders looking for graduate jobs in human resources (HR) may wish to make London their primary site of interest following the publications of new research.

According to recruiter Robert Walters, HR professionals in London are some of the best paid in the world, receiving a higher relative wage than their peers in other cities around the world.

The company's annual survey indicated that 2009 was a challenging year for the UK recruitment market.

Although the first half of the year was characterised by restructuring in the capital, the last six months saw a return of confidence, with permanent hiring beginning to rise.

"Many institutions appeared to have ‘cut too deep’ at the back end of 2008/early 2009 and returned to hiring in order to manage increased workloads," the report stated.

"Talent shortages actually returned in some areas such as risk and control."

The research also indicated that there was a steady increase in demand for contract professionals at financial services providers from the middle of the second quarter.
