The Government Economic Service: Economist Fast Stream Scheme for 2016 will be open for applications on Tuesday 1st September.
If you have just graduated from University or you are just thinking about your future career you may be interested in a live chat hosted by the Guardian website.
According to a recent survey graduates who study economics at University earn more after five years in comparison to graduates who have studied other subjects.
Benchmarking website Emolument, which crowdsources data from 55,000 individuals, states that economics graduates can expect to be earning £45,000 within five years of graduation and rising to £126,000 after fifteen years of experience.
High Fliers, the independent market research company which specialises in student and graduate recruitment research, predicts that there will be more opportunities for this summer’s university-leavers than at any time in the last decade. However, the UK’s top employers have received 6% more graduate job applications so far, compared with the equivalent period in the 2013-2014 recruitment round. So competition is still fierce for jobs at top employers.
