Investment Banks Increasing Number Of Graduate Jobs On Offer

Investment Banks Increasing Number Of Graduate Jobs On Offer Anyone looking for graduate jobs in London will be glad to hear that the big investment banks are stepping up their recruitment drives for next year’s graduate job intake.

The investment banking sector was one of the biggest losers in the graduate recruitment stakes. The number of graduate positions they were offering almost halved between 2007 and 2009.

But now huge investment banking companies like Barclays Capital, Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse have all said that they will have more graduate vacancies on offer next year. Indeed, Barclays Capital think that they will have room for 30% more graduates in 2010 than they did this year. That is great news for anyone looking for graduate jobs in London or other locations around the UK where there is a strong investment banking presence.

Speaking to The Guardian last week, the head of the London School of Economics' (LSE) careers service, Fiona Sandford said that, "We're not seeing the big black hole that happened when the crash came in the early nineties, when they had to start all over again. They were much wiser this time around. They kept their presence on campus and they kept small internship classes going."

So, it’s starting to look quite encouraging for anyone out there who hopes to land a graduate job in London in the finance sector. Take a look at all of the latest London graduate jobs on the e4s regional graduate vacancy search pages.
