It may also be useful to look at what previous graduates from your course and faculty have gone on to, this is know as the Graduate Labour Market.

Labour Market Information

Information on the graduate labour market can be extremely useful in identifying your career path, as it details of types of jobs and employers locally and nationally, and what factors might mean an increase in jobs or a change to the work environment.

Questions students ask about the graduate labour market include:

  • What are starting salaries of graduates? 
  • Where can I find vacancies for the type of work I'm interested in? 
  • What are the regional differences in the graduate labour market?
  • What are the latest trends in graduate recruitment?

Take a look at the details of the labour market in the local area on our pages, there is also lots of detailed information about graduate destinations in the What Do Graduates Do? 2016What Do Graduates Do? 2017‌ report and more about Bradford graduates on the Unistats website.

For an overview of the National labour market in the UK, have a look at the Employment section of the National Statistics Office.
