Employers are expected to recruit many more graduates this year, according to the Association of Graduate Recruiters.
Numbers of vacancies rose by more than 4% last year, with the AGR predicting a rise of 10.2% in 2014.
The rise reflects growing business confidence and economic growth, the association says.
Big growth sectors include IT and telecommunications, energy and banking, but a rise in public sector recruitment is also predicted.
Stephen Isherwood, the AGR’s chief executive, said the results were “welcome news”.
“There are some sectors looking at double digit growth for 2014,” he said.
