Lee Biggins, founder and CEO of CV-Library said:

Our research follows a recent study that we conducted on the best places to live and work in for graduates. Unsurprisingly the most skilled and technical industries that require in-depth training are offering the highest wages. With hundreds of thousands of candidates all gunning for these roles, employers will hopefully be spoilt for choice on who to shortlist. <

However, if your business fits into one of the lower-paid industries, don’t worry. There is more you can offer besides a high salary to entice candidates. Offering flexible working and a whole host of other workplace perks is a great way to make your jobs more attractive, so be sure to make good use of these!

The sector with the highest amount of graduate jobs advertised on CV-Library is sales with a 24.2 per cent share, followed by recruitment with a 15.5 per cent share, IT (12.5 per cent), engineering (7.9 per cent) and marketing (7.1 per cent).

CV-library analysed thousands of live job vacancies on their site in order to collate this data.
