Warwick graduates most sought after by employers

We are targeted by the largest number of UK’s top graduate employers

New research for the Graduate Market has named University of Warwick graduates as the most sought after by UK’s top graduate employers.

The Graduate Market examined how many graduates the leading employers recruited in 2016, and assessed their latest recruitment targets for 2017. Their research ranked Warwick as being targeted by the largest number of these top UK graduate employers.

This success means that Warwick have attracted the largest number of these top graduate recruiters for campus fairs, recruitment presentations of other promotions during 2016/17.

Head of External Relations: Career and Skills, Stephen Ward said: “Warwick’s position as the most targeted university in The Graduate Market in 2017, is testament to the hard work devoted by our teams to listening to and working with employers.

“Whilst the report focuses on the Times Top 100 UK organisations, who are a core group for us and of interest to many Warwick students, we in Student Careers & Skills work with almost 3000 organisations on an ongoing basis, from locally based small businesses to international employers, and across sectors as diverse as charities, engineering, education, politics, creative, consultancy, and arts. In every case we apply the same care in supporting them to engage productively with Warwick students across all disciplines.

“It’s also important to recognise that employer engagement happens not just in Student Careers & Skills, but in the Students Union, Warwick’s Conferences team, the Business School, WMG, and other academic departments. Close internal partnerships are a vital part of the picture; each team plays a key role in supporting employers to get the results they need from engaging with the University and its exceptional students.”
