Grads in UK / Recruitment levels at a seven-year high but jobs ‘reserved for student interns’

Record numbers of graduate jobs will be reserved for students who have already enjoyed placements at Britain’s top companies despite concerns that internships are being dominated by those with well-connected parents.

Research published today shows that vacancies for university leavers are set to soar to a seven-year high this summer as employers significantly boost recruitment levels for the first time since the economic downturn.

But the study revealed that thousands of jobs will only be open to applicants who have previously carried out internships, industrial placements or work experience.

Companies said that four-in-10 positions being advertised for graduates in 2014 would be reserved for those with previous experience – barring other final year students from applying.

Numbers will rise as high as three-quarters of jobs at City investment banks and around 50 per cent of posts at top law firms, which traditionally pay the highest graduate starting salaries.
