2018 graduate jobs report – Give a Grad a Go

Copied to clipboard

2018 was a busy year in graduate recruitment – and a very positive year for the specialist graduate recruitment agency, Give A Grad A Go.

Throughout the year, we worked across a wide and diverse range of sectors – from Marketing & Advertising and Banking & Finance graduate jobs, through to roles in emerging industries such as FinTech, EdTech, and PropTech.

Based upon each of the key sectors we worked within last year, and from the data we collated from our placements, we have compiled an analysis of the most common graduate jobs, salary range and gender representation.

Throughout the year, we continued to focus on a large candidate range – from university leavers, to those with up to 3-4 years’ experience.

Consequently, we also worked on graduate recruitment projects ranging from entry-level opportunities and graduate schemes right through to 2nd and 3rd-level jobs.

This was reflected in the range in starting salary for each sector – from £20k, right the way through to £50k for candidates with more experience, or in-demand, highly technical skills.

Across many sectors, and in every quarter of last year, our gender representation statistics continued to defy industry standards.

This was particularly notable in some of the more traditionally male-dominated sectors, such as IT & Tech, and Internet & Digital Media.

We are thrilled to have helped a number of talented women secure graduate jobs in tech last year, as well as enabling fantastic companies in the technology and digital sectors hire graduates who are female.

We also launched a number of new employer services last year – the most prominent being our development of a custom careers microsite for the world-renowned media group, Dentsu Aegis Network.

Despite the variety of roles and sectors we worked on last year, our team of dedicated graduate recruitment specialists ensured that our probation pass rate remained at an impressive 95%, while our average time to fill a role remained well below the industry standard, at just 19 working days.
