The 2013/2014 Graduate UK 300 has just been released by the Guardian newspaper. Involving over 23,000 students and 106 universities, it is the largest and most comprehensive guide to the 300 most popular graduate employers according to student opinion.
The league table is usefully broken down into both student graduation dates and career sectors. For our sector:
- property; and
- construction, civil engineering and surveying
the results were as follows.
For the property sector the league table order reads:
- BNP Paribas Real Estate
- Knight Franks
- Jones Lang LaSalle
- Countryside Properties
- British Land
- Strutt & Parker
- CB Richard Ellis
Students in this sector were more likely than average to have some work related experience and took around 7 months and 38 applications to secure a graduate position.
For construction, civil engineering and surveying the table reads:
- Mott MacDonald
- Balfour Beatty
- Laing O’Rourke
- Buro Happold
Students in this sector believed more than most that their course prepared them for the workplace and more students than any other applied directly to the employer using a career network, such as Student Surveyor.
