Graduates look east for opportunity

Published: Thursday, 26 July 2007   Category: Graduate recruitment

UK graduates are flocking east to new European Union states in order to find employment.

Skilled university leavers are in high demand across various industry sectors in eastern Europe, reports the Guardian.

Among the most popular areas for gradate ex-pats are property, economics and teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL).

Jenny Johnson, head of TEFL at Cactus Worldwide said: "With so many people wanting to come west, teaching English as a foreign language is booming.

"Eastern Europe has been bubbling under for some time but it is now showing signs of exploding in terms of teacher training," she added

An alternative route to the east can be found by working for a multinational firm, with many large companies increasing their presence in the region.

Graduates looking for domestic work in the legal sector will face more competition for employment as, according to UCAS, the number of law students continues to increase.
