7 Essential Hiring Tips for Managers From a Career Expert

Over 180,000 students started a university undergraduate degree in the UK in 2012, meaning all those who did a 3-year course — likely the majority — will just be approaching graduation right now.

Every year there's a scrum for graduate jobs and many young people don't even know what they want to do yet. It can be helpful then just to know where the jobs are.

Job search engine Adzuna has crunched through data on thousands of job listings to find out which industries are recruiting the most graduates in Britain right now.

Scroll down to see the 7 sectors currently offering the most entry-level positions.

7. PR, Advertising & Marketing

Number of graduate vacancies: 1,708

Average pay: £25,776

Current vacancy: Graduate PR Account Assistant

Britain's economic recovery is largely down to the drive in consumer spending. So it's no surprise that the industries getting us spending are also hiring. PR, advertising, and marketing also traditionally have well established paths for getting new blood through the doors.

6. Customer service

Number of graduate vacancies: 1,943

Average pay: £26,259

Current vacancy: Graduate Customer Service Executive

The customer service sector is pretty board, partly explaining why there are so any grad vacancies. The industry spans air hostesses to call centre workers and everything in between — basically anywhere where you're dealing with customers but not directly selling to them.

5. Accounting & Finance

Number of graduate vacancies: 2,937

Average pay: £32,179

Current vacancy: Graduate Tax & Accounting Role

There's only two things that are certain in life – death and taxes. So, couple that fact with the the City of London's recovery and you've got a hiring spree on your hands. Massive tax and accounting giants like EY, PwC and KPMG continue to hoover up graduates for their training programmes each year.
