About This Report:
This report asks whether people with a degree are working in high level occupations. The research discovered that the majority of highly skilled people are employed in well paid jobs, but a significant minority work in routine or semi routing occupations. There appears to be a spatial mismatch at work with a strong negative relationship between areas where graduates live who tend to work in high level jobs and graduates that work in lower level employment. This implies that place of residence can influence employment potential rather than qualification levels alone.
