Salaries frozen for new graduates but upturn in opportunities

Graduate starting salaries are set to fall to their lowest real-terms level since 2003 this summer as 90 per cent of businesses freeze their offers to recruits, according to analysis released by Incomes Data Services (IDS). But graduate recruitment is set to rise by 9.1 per cent as the job market recovers, IDS predicts. The services sector is planning to boost graduate numbers by 38 per cent in the coming year, while the public and not-for-profit sector expects to increase intake by 6.7 per cent, a turnaround from last year’s 5 per cent reduction.
