Skills shortage takes its toll

The skills shortage in graduates is taking its toll on around two thirds of companies in the UK, who according to the Association of Graduate Recruiters have many unfulfilled graduate vacancies.

An increase in graduate hiring targets has been reported for this year though, with 58% of employers included in the study backing the strong job market as a contender to explain the number of vacancies still available.

The three industries with the highest unfulfilled vacancies were accountancy, IT and electrical engineering.
