Finding a job in Dundee after postgraduate study
Dundee is a busy city with an industry focused largely around retail and manufacturing. Nationwide employers, such as Tesco, or local ones, such as Tayside Contracts are known to hire graduates. Dundee is also responsible for a large portion of the UK's digital entertainment industry: companies such as Realtime Worlds (creators of Grand Theft Auto) offer ongoing graduate opportunities for software developers and encourage speculative applications.
Dundee City Council may be a useful contact for any graduate seeking work in the public sector, and many of the Scottish transport companies offer graduate recruitment programmes. The proximity of several military bases means that the Army is a popular choice for graduates with all kinds of skills.
