The start of 2010 saw a jump in the number of new businesses started up in the United Kingdom, according to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

This could lead to new jobs - including graduate roles - being created in the UK as these companies grow.

Compared to the beginning on 2009, 48,000 more businesses were started in the United Kingdom at the start of 2010. This represents a boost of around 1.1 per cent.

Mark Prisk, the business and enterprise minister, said that new businesses are likely to help the country's economy stay out of recession.

"Private sector enterprises will create growth in our economy so it is encouraging to see that the number of businesses at the start of 2010 had increased … these figures show the resilience of British business," he said.

"I am determined that the Government will do everything it can to create the right environment for these businesses to now expand and grow, and also to encourage more people to set up on their own."
