A report from Thomson Reuters’ Incomes Data Services (IDS) published on Monday has revealed that companies are expecting to hire 18% more graduates in 2014.

Financial firms are expected to lead the way, almost doubling their number of graduate hires, after a 3% fall in 2013. Nasreen Rahman, assistant editor at IDS, said: “Some sectors such as finance appear to be making up for lost time, aiming to recruit several times more graduates in 2014 than they did in 2013.”

This mirrors plans by the Big Four accounting firms to increase their graduate recruitment this year, such as PwC.
