The Scottish Graduate Labour Market

This new report from members of AGCAS Scotland, in collaboration with HECSU/Prospects, looks at the realities of the diverse graduate labour market in Scotland. Using 2016/17 graduate destinations data, The Scottish Graduate Labour Market explores graduate migration patterns, employment sectors and skills gaps in nine Scottish areas.

For each area, there is an overview of the economic and employment background, current trends in graduate employment, graduate origin and retention, skills shortages and vacancies, and commentary on the future graduate labour market.

This timely report will help universities, policy makers, skills bodies and employers to understand the makeup of the Scottish graduate labour market and develop a more nuanced approach to how we support graduates and tackle the challenges that we will face in the graduate labour market of the future.
