Graduate public sector jobs 'still popular'

Published: Monday, 18 October 2010   Category: Public sector

Graduate public sector jobs are still proving popular with Britons despite the spectre of cuts looming large, according to new research.

Employers such as the NHS, Teach First, MI6, Civil Service, Amnesty International and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office all featured in the top 20 of the latest Guardian 300 survey.

In addition, the study showed that technical firms are finding favour among university leavers, with Dyson surging from 242nd into the top 30 and IBM, Shell and Google also on the rise.

"It may be surprising that public sector employers are still popular, given the news about government spending cuts," said Steve James, editor of the Guardian UK 300 and guardianuk300.com.

"But the survey shows that the Civil Service Fast Stream and the Foreign Office are huge, enduring employer brands, attractive to graduate jobseekers."

Meanwhile, New Civil Engineer is set to hold its inaugural Infrastructure Show at the Birmingham NEC tomorrow (October 20th), with graduate engineers invited to attend to discuss the impending cuts.
