Graduates Not Using Degree, report says

20 Aug 2015

A recent study shows the majority of UK university graduates are employed in positions that do not require a degree.

Graduate careers survey results

58.8 per cent of UK Graduates are working in positions deemed non-graduate roles according to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development - a figure exceeded only by Greece and Estonia.

According to the figures one in twelve of those are employed in low skilled jobs - such as in coffee shops,  bars, call centres and front of house roles at hospitality events.

The CIPD said the report's findings should be a wake-up call and more high-skilled jobs need to be generated to ensure students are making better use of their skills, but also highlighted that an apprenticeship could be a much better option than university.
