A new report released by @officestudents:  A geography of employment and earnings, presents a method for grouping areas based on measures of local graduate opportunity. The new measure, published today, contextualises how graduate opportunities are spread across the country, capturing differences in earnings and employment status by local area. For example, it shows that: in England, areas with highest concentration of well-paid graduates (those earning over £23,000) are London, Reading, Slough and Heathrow – where 70 per cent of graduates earn over £23,000 or are in further study three years after graduation areas with the lowest earnings – where 52 per cent of graduates earn over £23,000 or are in high-level study – are mainly in the Midlands, and North and South-West England, with coastal towns facing particular challenges.
