Graduates presented with better job prospects

Published: Thursday, 29 April 2010   Category: All Graduate job news

Recent university leavers looking for the latest graduate jobs and courses may be interested to hear the results of the latest Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) and KPMG Labour Market Outlook survey.

The survey shows that the UK's emergence out of recession is now leading to better job prospects, with the overall net balance between the percentage expecting to recruit and those looking to cut staff across all sectors of the economy is now positive (+5).

This rating is positive for the first time since winter 2008 and represents an overall increase from -5 in the previous quarter, thanks to a sharp rebound in the private sector, which recorded +29.

Gerwyn Davies, CIPD public policy adviser and author of the report, said: "The recession represents a long, dark winter for the jobs market.

"However, a return to spring could mean a growth of full-time jobs in the private sector that may continue if the global economy continues to recover at the same rate."
