Graduate job vacancies decline

The UK Graduate Careers Survey by High Fliers in association with the Times has revealed that the number of 2017 graduate jobs available declined for the first time in five years. Companies hired 19,133 graduates, a fall of 5 per cent on 2016 recruitment. The main reason cited are companies reducing spending due to uncertainty over growth and how Brexit will affect business.

The latest figures are expected to further fuel concerns surrounding tuition fees, and if graduates will be able to repay the average £54,000 loan to fund their degree.
