The Guardian is reporting that survey shows slowdown in graduate recruitment accounts for bulk of decline.
Young workers will be forced to compete for fewer positions this year, as data suggests that the entry-level jobs market is set to stagnate.
A slowdown in graduate recruitment accounts for the bulk of the decline, though the survey also pointed to a slowdown in hiring of school leavers and apprentices in the months ahead.
Figures collected by the Institute of Employment Studies show that of the 3.4m jobs created over the last 10 years, just 400,000 were classified as skilled and semi-skilled. Around 2.5m were considered professional or senior jobs, and were mostly taken by older, more experienced workers, while about 500,000 were classified as low-skilled.
