Times reveal top 100 graduate employers
The Times has released its annual list of the best 100 graduate employers in the UK.

For the fifth year running PricewaterhouseCoopers, an international accountancy firm, was voted the winner with 8.2 per cent of the finalists' votes.

A new entry into the top ten was budget supermarket Aldi who rose to eighth place. It offers £40,000 salaries for graduates as well as an Audi A4 company car, pension, private healthcare, life assurance and five weeks paid holiday, according to the Times.

Dan Ronald, a regional managing director responsible for graduate recruitment at Aldi, said: "In three years here you can get where it would take you ten years to get in another company."

In second place was PricewaterhouseCoopers' rival Deloitte with KPMG, another professional services firm, coming in third.

Over 15,000 graduates took part in a poll to find the Times Top 100 Graduate Employers in the closest battle since the survey started. Only seven votes separated the top two firms.

Last week the Guardian reported that the credit crunch is causing graduates to turn to recruitment agencies as many private-sector companies are reducing their employee intake.
