This is a critical factor in attracting graduate talent.
We recommend a minimum starting salary of £17,000. The most common salary range for first graduate jobs advertised on Gradsouthwest is £17,000 - £19,500.
You will also need to take scales, grades and negotiated agreements into account, plus any immediate factors such as skills shortages.
Salaries are subject to the national minimum wage and the requirements of equal pay and discrimination legislation. In general, a new employee should be paid at the same level as the previous incumbent unless there is a formal system for increments or length of service.
Whatever salary you decide upon, state it explicitly in your recruitment as graduates are often put off by jobs that do not indicate a salary range
