Starting salaries for graduate roles remain strong

Published: Wednesday, 26 January 2011   Category: All Graduate job news

The average starting salaries for university-leavers in graduate roles are predicted to remain the same in this coming year, when compared to the 2010, according to a report.

High Fliers Research released the comprehensive Graduate Market Report 2011 this month, in which it was revealed that those in graduate roles get paid a median of £29,000.

This prediction shows no change since last year, a promising hold in such a harsh economic climate.

In 2009, salaries increased by 5.9 per cent on the previous year, while in 2008, graduates were paid 7.4 per cent more than in 2007.

According to the report, the most generous salaries come from investment banks, who offer an average of £42,000, followed by law firms with £38,000 and oil and energy companies, which offer £32,000.

The report - which is released yearly - also suggested that a third of all graduate roles go to a candidate who has already conducted work experience at the company to which they are applying.
