A recent survey has indicated that the leading recruiters of graduate talent are going to hire greater numbers of students in 2018.  The reasons could be many and varied but perhaps the Brexit date looming closer is creating concern about diminishing talent pools as hiring Europeans will become more difficult.

What it is likely to mean is that competition for the best talent this year will be tougher and those organisations that have the right employer reputation/employee advocacy will come out on top.

Matching this with a a great candidate experience will make the competitive advantage even greater.
