The impact of Brexit on UK graduate recruitment

This is the first UK study to measure the impact of Brexit on graduate recruitment from the viewpoint of those that employ them.

It is based on a survey of HR managers, partners and senior executives from 75 top UK graduate employers – including 50 of The Guardian’s 300 Top UK Graduate Employers and 40 of The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers – on the likely impact of Brexit on their organisation’s graduate intake.

The surveys were conducted online (and some by telephone) between 8 and 13 June (except one on 20 May) 2016.

Statistics in this report are based on the responses of the 50 organisations in The Guardian UK 300 Top Graduate Employers that are expected to hire over 5,500 graduates in 2016 across 10 sectors.
