Graduates in South West find careers in industry, defence – Complete University Guide

The Complete University Guide today reveals that the manufacturing, defence and defence related industries are recruiting the greatest proportion of graduates into graduate-type employment in the South West.

The multiple arms of Boots – the pharmaceutical and retail group – top the regional top ten, reflecting its position at the head of the 100 leading recruiters of graduates.

But the Complete University Guide’s analysis of the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey shows that private sector employers dominate the top ten in the region.

Financial services are represented by Nationwide in second place and JP Morgan in seventh place. With the exception of the National Health Service, in third place, and Cornwall County Council, in eighth place, the rest of the top ten is composed of manfuacturing industry and defence-related employers.

The data will be available on The Complete University Guide site from 0001 on Monday, December 10.

A full press release and national employers’ table are attached.
