Warwick University Is Top Target For Graduate Employers

23 Jan 2013

Warwick University has topped a list of universities targeted by the UK's largest graduate recruiters, according to a new survey.

The UK's top investment banks, law firms and consultancies are focusing on finding graduate recruits at a small handful of elite universities including Warwick, Nottingham and Manchester, a new report has found.

According to the study by High Flier Research, the majority of the UK's top 100 graduate employers will target students at 20 or fewer universities, with one-in-five firms having scaled back funding for their graduate recruitment programmes compared with last year.

Warwick was the university targeted by the most top employers in 2012-13. Cambridge was fourth on the list, with Oxford the seventh-most targeted. Other highly rated academic institutions including St Andrews did not appear in the top 20.

The firms surveyed by the report said they were more likely to use social media to promote their graduate schemes than in previous years – 71 per cent said they planned to increase their emphasis on this approach – but one-in-four said they would be putting fewer resources into traditional university career fairs.

The Graduate Market in 2013 report also showed students are being approached earlier in their university careers, with 42 of the top 100 firms saying they were more likely to promote graduate roles to first-year students than in previous years. Twenty-eight of the top firms said they were targeting penultimate year students more than they had done in the past.
