Graduates handed boost by jobs forecast

Recent university leavers have been boosted by the news that the Recruitment and Employment Confederation and KPMG's report on jobs showed that the growth of permanent staff placements grew in February.
The growth shown in the report brought the recruitment level to its strongest reading since July 2007 and could be construed as a positive sign for recent university leavers looking to find graduate jobs in banking and finance.
Bernard Brown, partner and head of business services at KPMG, said: "The latest figures seem to confirm that the UK jobs market is on the road to recovery.
"Permanent job placements are growing at their fastest pace since July 2007, with both vacancies and salaries increasing."
He added the caveat that the impact of inevitable public-sector recession on the jobs market had yet to be played out and that this would come over the next six to 12 months.
The deadlines for applying for many graduate recruitment schemes are on the horizon and as such recent university leavers should get them in as soon as possible to be considered for starting in September.
