University of Manchester students are the most targeted by graduate recruiters, a new report reveals.
The ‘Graduate Market in 2016’ survey of vacancies, starting salaries and undergraduate work experience programmes at the country’s 100 leading employers showed how these companies targeted Manchester students ahead of all others, including Oxford and Cambridge.
The report, published by High Fliers Research, also showed that Britain’s top employers are preparing to recruit their biggest-ever intake of university graduates in the coming year.
