The Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) is predicting a 10.2% increase in graduate job vacancies in 2014.

Over two hundred leading graduate employers took part in the AGR’s winter survey, which collectively reported expectations to provide more than 23,000 graduate job opportunities this year.

Significant growth in graduate recruitment is expected in IT and banking, among other sectors.

Stephen Isherwood, Chief Executive of the AGR, warned that candidates should still ‘think carefully’ about their graduate job applications, and be sure that they comprehend ‘what an employer is looking for’.

‘What this doesn’t mean is that graduates should be any less focused on their career search,’ he said.

Toni Pearce, President of the National Union of Students (NUS), believes that graduate jobs should not be isolated from ‘the claustrophobic umbrella of youth unemployment’.

‘A rise in graduate jobs does not mean that the wider and more pressing issue of youth unemployment will just disappear,’ she said.
