Sophie Hudson, TalentPool’s director of marketing and user experience, said: "There’s no denying that London offers graduates a broad choice of career-launching and boosting opportunities.

"However, great opportunities - particularly with startups and small companies - certainly aren't restricted to the capital.

"As we’re seeing at TalentPool, there’s an appetite to work for new and fast-growing companies around the country."
