Last year was a difficult one for student recruitment, but entry-level recruitment still remains vital for some employers – even during a pandemic. 

A recent report by the ISE (Institute of Student Employers) found that “The majority of the UK’s top graduate employers have stabilised or increased recruitment this year,” according to the Institute of Student Employers (ISE).

“The survey of 135 student employers found that while nearly half (48%) are recruiting the same number of graduates as last year, 36% are hiring more with 18% increasing their intake by at least 10%.”

“Opportunities for students to gain work experience will also be more widely available, although much of this activity will take place virtually.”

“More than half (56%) of employers are recruiting the same number of interns as last year and 24% are hiring more. Only a fifth have cut opportunities this year, compared to the 38% in 2020.” The ISE says
