New research suggests that half of British businesses are planning to expand their workforce this year, with job creation forecast in all parts of the UK, with North Wales, Wales and Scotland expecting to see the biggest growth in jobs.
The survey, by the Confederation of British Industry and Accenture, found that permanent roles are set to grow at a faster pace than temporary jobs, with 40 per cent of firms that responded planning to take on more permanent staff and 30 per cent set to employ more temps.
Pay rises are also on the horizon with 43 per cent of firms planning to raise pay in line with the retail prices index measure of inflation, with 12 per cent intending to make above-inflation increases in pay.
The first students to pay higher university tuition fees will graduate into the UK's most attractive job market for a decade, a study says.
The High Fliers study of the graduate market in 2015 predicts recruitment will be at its highest for a decade.
The key to securing a top role is undertaking work placements at the firm in question, the study suggests.
A third of jobs are expected to be offered to graduates who have managed to do this, it adds.
More than four-fifths of the UK's leading graduate recruiters are now offering paid work-experience programmes for students and recent graduates, with an unprecedented 13,049 available this year.
Two-thirds have paid internships during the holidays for final-year students, while half make industrial placements available as part of degree courses.
And an increasing number of firms now have placements for first-year undergraduates.
Those with no work experience are unlikely to be successful applicants and have "little or no chance" of receiving a job offer through graduate programmes, half of the recruiters said.
Overall the UK's leading employers plan to expand graduate recruitment even further in 2015, with 8% more vacancies predicted than last year.
This follows a similarly-sized rise in 2014 and represents the third consecutive annual increase.
Students leaving university this summer will find a buoyant graduate job market, said Martin Birchall, managing director of High Fliers Research.
The UK's top employers would also be providing "more than 13,000 paid internships, vacation work or course-based placements in 2015", he added.
Universities minister Greg Clark said: "Confidence in the economy continues to grow, and this is reflected in the fact that Britain's top companies will recruit more graduates this year than they have for a decade.
"This report will be warmly welcomed by the record number of students who started university this year and highlights how a degree remains one of the best routes into a rewarding career."
