University is top of the list for graduate employers

(1 February 2018)

The University of Manchester is the most targeted university in the UK for top graduate employers, according to a new report from independent market research company, High Fliers Research.

In ‘The Graduate Market in 2018’ report, Manchester came out top with organisations ranked in The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers. These include the biggest names in the public and private sectors.

High Fliers has been researching graduate recruitment at UK universities since 1994 and as well as the annual Graduate Market reports, it also produces The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers list each year. This version of the Graduate Market report also includes information about the wider graduate job market, salaries and internships, and factors such as the impact of Brexit.

Tammy Goldfeld, Head of the Careers Service at the University, said: “We work closely with employers and students to ensure that careers fairs and workshops are busy and offer high quality jobs, internships and talks, so it is really good news that we’ve topped the list in this report.

“The Careers Service isn’t just about job fairs: we offer training, networking and volunteering opportunities that, combined with teaching, helps our students realise their potential and become attractive to employers.”
