Graduates 'could benefit from calibre of Tees Valley'
Tuesday, 31 March 2009
The Tees Valley has the potential to offer exciting careers to people looking for graduate jobs, according to one expert.
Joe Docherty, current chief executive of Tees Valley Regeneration, claims the number of new students coming into the area has risen by 20 per cent in the last year, mainly due to the opening of the new Middlesbrough College, reports the Evening Gazette.
He added those students looking for graduate jobs after leaving university could be attracted to a number of major firms that have relocated to the Tees Valley over recent years.
Mr Docherty stated "other quality developers will see what is happening here" and could further boost the region.
"One of the things I have been really pleased about is that we have managed to attract a calibre of developer to the north-east who was not prepared to come here before," he added.
The Mail on Sunday recently reported that university leavers looking for graduate jobs could benefit from searching the small business sector.
