Building a new tomorrow: What do graduates want? 2021/22

About the research

The past year has been like no other for students and recent graduates - youth unemployment is high, graduates' career confidence is low and the future of the workplace has changed rapidly.

In this research, we focus on what really matters to graduates when it comes to their first job and employer in this “new normal”. We look at confidence, ambitions and concerns, as well as the importance of wellbeing, diversity and supporting social mobility.

Inside the report:

  • Insight from 15,000+ student and recent graduate respondents
  • How a student’s background impacts expectations of employers
  • What students want from an application process through to hire
  • What employers can do to attract more applications to their programmes
  • And much more
