An overseas background check company is set to make Swansea its UK home in a move that will create more than 100 graduate jobs.
Checkwell Decision Corporation, a Canadian company, will offer its services to the education and business sectors in the UK as well as in Europe.
The Welsh Assembly, keen to provide more jobs for graduates in the region, has partly funded the move.
Highlighting the importance of graduates to his business, Dean Drysdale, chairman of Checkwell Decision Corporation, said: "With the support of the Welsh Assembly Government, we are delighted to have a base in Swansea.
"With a well-qualified graduate population this will be a great base for our company."
Meanwhile, hospitality expert CatererSearch has claimed that graduates are the future of the industry, and has urged companies within the sector to employ more university leavers.
The firm argues that highly-skilled graduates can fill a number of roles, from entry level to junior management positions.
