This is according to joint research from the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and Ashridge Business School, which found that their top three job priorities were carrying out challenging/interesting work, getting high salaries and advancing their careers.
However, almost four graduates in 10 (38%) were not satisfied with their career advancement in their current organisation, while one-third (31%) of managers said that the greatest challenge when working with graduates was managing their expectations.
Research also found that, of the 1,900 graduates surveyed for this report, more than half expected to be promoted to a management role within three years of starting work, with one in 10 believing that they would be appointed to a management position a year into their first job.
This is according to the latest labour market data from the Office for National Statistics, which found that the number of employees and self-employed people forced to work part time instead of full time had increased by 80,000 in the three months to May 2011.
The total number of unemployed people fell by 26,000 over the quarter to reach 2.45 million. The fall was largely attributed to a drop in the number of 16- to 24-year-olds out of work, down 42,000 over the three-month period.
However, the number of economically inactive people aged between 16 and 64 rose by 32,000 over the quarter to reach 9.3 million. This rise was mainly due to an increase in the number of students not active in the labour market, up by 41,000.
More people were also found to be claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance, with an increase of 24,500 claimants. T

The left-handed protest will be led by veteran, right-handed union members, Wesley Bell and Vinko Vulin, who work at the company’s Tullamarine maintenance base in Melbourne. Their union has notified Qantas of the action, which is due to commence today, Thursday, July 7. Read more…
