Scotland's growing economy could mean more graduate vacancies

Published: Tuesday, 15 February 2011   Category: All Graduate job news

University-leavers looking for graduate vacancies in the United Kingdom may wish to search in Scotland, as a new report suggests the economy is growing.

The report, from the Bank of Scotland, has revealed that the economy of the country experienced growth in January. This suggests that graduate vacancies could be created along with other jobs.

The national bank's TMI index, which takes into account the manufacturing and service industries in the country, rose from 36.90 in December to 52.90 in January.

Donald MacRae, chief economist at Bank of Scotland, said that the results may allay some fears that the recession is worsening.

"The Scottish private sector economy made a return to growth in January reducing fears of a 'double dip' and increasing expectations for a continuing recovery in 2011," he said.

Last month, it was revealed that online retailer Amazon is to create around 950 full- and part-time positions, in a move which may include graduate opportunities.
