Graduate opportunities may be created in PM's 'year of jobs'

Published: Tuesday, 04 January 2011   Category: Graduate Job sector Reports

The prime minister, David Cameron, has used his New Year's Eve podcast to say that 2011 should be a year of job creation, which may include a rise in graduate opportunities.

In the podcast, posted on the Downing Street website, Mr Cameron said the onus for making job opportunities was on business, not government.

He singled out growing businesses as the top job-creators for this year, which may lead to more graduate schemes as more jobs are needed.

In the New Year's Eve podcast, Mr Cameron went on to talk about the specific problems of this specific government, while referring back to the fact that he wants people and businesses to create the jobs.
"And [creating jobs] is particularly true when governments are so deeply in debt that they have to cut back their own spending programmes," he said.

The prime minister's assurance that growing businesses are important for job creation chimes in with a recent Department of Business survey of medium-sized companies.

DoB's survey suggested that 58 per cent of mid-cap businesses expect their turnover to rise in 2011.
