FirstGroup is just the ticket for graduates
Aberdeen-based transport operator FirstGroup has confirmed it is the only bus or rail company to be listed in a leading poll showing the 300 most popular graduate employers as voted for by students and graduates in Britain.
The company, which had nearly 1,000 graduate applications for its 2012 programme – a record for the firm – came in at number 219 in the poll, ahead of companies such as the Bank of England, O2 and Standard Life.
More than 25,000 students from 100 universities voted, which according to pollsters, makes it the most representative student poll yet of graduate employment opportunities.
