Getting a Graduate Level Job after University

Each year, around 800,000 people graduate in the UK. These fresh graduates join an existing pool of graduates who graduated in previous years who are still looking for a graduate job. In 2019, there were an additional 1.2 million graduates who were still struggling to find a graduate job from 2016-18. Graduates offer skills that can add value to your business. It is important to give them the experience to grow in their personal and professional careers.
