Graduates are facing fewer job vacancies and lower pay amid an employment slowdown, with Belfast one of the worst places to seek work, according to a new report.

Jobs site Adzuna said there was an 8% decline in the number of graduate jobs in April compared with the same month a year ago, down to 12,850.

Average entry-level advertised salaries also reached a 30-month low of £23,309.

Cambridge and Oxford were the best cities for graduate jobs. General vacancies were strong in Guildford, Reading, Exeter and Winchester.

The worst places were Sunderland, Hull, Middlesbrough and Belfast, with around three candidates per vacancy.

Doug Monro, co-founder of Adzuna, said: "Graduate vacancies are falling and new joiners are facing one of the toughest job markets in recent times."
