Those searching graduate opportunities may wish to move to Scotland

University-leavers looking for graduate opportunities may wish to move to Scotland, after research found that around two-thirds of all job-seekers would consider moving north.

That is according to a survey conducted by Talent Scotland, a body which aims to promote the country as a place to live, learn and work, reports recruitment news resource OnRec.

The survey - of people currently living in America, Africa, the European Union and Asia - found 68 per cent of respondents would consider moving to Scotland for their job.

Hazel Sinclair, head of Talent Scotland, told the news provider that this is the third year they have conducted the survey, with the results going up each time.

"This year's findings are the most promising yet, with 68 per cent of respondents favouring Scotland over other parts of the UK," she said.

"Scotland continues to appeal to those looking to relocate but the factors job-seekers find important are shifting. Education, healthcare, security and culture are coming through stronger in determining relocation decisions which strike the right work/life balance."

An example of a graduate opportunity offered in Scotland is with the BBC, a company which is currently advertising graduate vacancies.
