Warwick Students 3rd most-often targeted by Britain’s top graduate employers

University of Warwick students have just been declared as the 3rd most-often targeted by Britain’s top graduate employers in the annual ranking published by High Fliers Research at:

Warwick has risen four places from its position in last year’s High Fliers Research (see ). Warwick is consistently in the top 10 in this annual survey.

For the last twenty years High Fliers Research has conducted detailed research into the graduate recruitment market in the UK, providing the country’s leading employers with an insight into the attitudes and aspirations of final year university students.

The most recent High fliers report declares that the five universities most-often targeted by Britain’s top graduate employers in 2014- 2015 are: Manchester, Nottingham, Warwick, Cambridge, and Oxford.

The report also notes increasing confidence in the graduate recruitment market reporting that:

“The UK’s leading employers plan to expand their graduate recruitment even further in

2015 with 8.1% more entry-level vacancies than last year, the third consecutive year

that graduate vacancies have increased. This substantial increase in graduate vacancies for 2015 takes graduate recruitment beyond the pre-recession peak in the graduate job market in 2007 and means that there will be more opportunities for this summer’s university-leavers than at any time in the last decade.”

Warwick’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Nigel Thrift said:

“This is a testament to the high calibre of Warwick’s students and how they take full advantage of the experiences Warwick offers them as a University. Warwick is a globally connected university and our students graduate with an acute global awareness and an ability to thrive in a range of countries and cultures. It is no surprise that they are highly sought after by many globally focused leading graduate employers”
