London Finance Job Openings Jump 5 Per Cent In October

25 Nov 2010

London Finance Job Openings Jump 5 Per Cent In October Those of you out there looking for graduate finance jobs in London will be very pleased to hear that the number of finance positions in the City was reported to have jumped by 5 per cent in October.

In September there were 4,725 City jobs on offer in the finance sector, a figure that rose 252 to reach 4,977 in October. The number of people looking for new jobs in finance also fell from over 10,000 to 9,000 – a fall of 16 per cent.

A rise in merger and acquisition activity has helped fuel the number of finance vacancies in London’s main financial district according to a survey by Morgan McKinley. The tentative recovery in the wider economy of Britain has also helped to increase the number of London finance jobs for graduates and other people with a background in the finance sector.

Managing director of Morgan McKinley’s financial-services unit, Andrew Evans, said that the rise in London job vacancies in finance was partly due to and improving confidence in the sector, driven by an increase in the UK’s GDP figures. In the third quarter, GDP grew at its second quickest rate for three years. Evans also said that his company expected that the first quarter of next year would be busier than the last quarter of this year but that there could be some instability along the way.
