Graduate recruitment sector

Our dedicated in-house team of researchers specialise in higher education labour market information and their insight informs all of our student and graduate services.

We have the expertise to interpret and predict trends in the graduate labour market – and analyse the destinations of the graduating cohort every year through our influential publication, What do graduates do?

How does this help you?
We know that graduates often don’t work in a profession directly related to their degree. Instead, they can apply their skills and knowledge to other sectors. We have unrivalled insights into where you can find the graduates with the right skills for your business, allowing you to access a wealth of talent from areas you may not have previously considered.

What do graduates do?

What do graduates do? presents findings from the Higher Education Statistics Agency's Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey (DLHE). It examines first degree graduate destinations six months after they graduated.

The publication is published by Prospects, HECSU and AGCAS and is available online in digital magazine format or in hard copy. View the latest edition.

Graduate Market Trends (GMT) is a quarterly review of the graduate labour market, featuring articles on topical issues, reviews of recent reports, and results of our own graduate salary and vacancy surveys.
