The number of university graduates vying for each UK job vacancy has reached its highest ever level, as starting salaries for entry-level roles increase for the first time since 2008. Recent graduates applying for jobs at some of the UK’s most active companies will face competition from an average of 82 other applicants per role, according to latest figures from members of the Association of Graduate Recruiters.
