The survey of some of the country’s biggest businesses found three in four bosses believe graduate skills are poor.

The poll, of firms including HSBC, Santander, KPMG and Procter & Gamble, found widespread concern of the quality of potential recruits.

Researchers found that thousands of young people arrive at interviews without the “vital employability skills” required by employers such as having a suitable grasp of English, being punctual and having a general “can do” attitude.

The study, commissioned by the Young Enterprise charity, found that the problems compounded the current recruitment crisis affecting young people from teenage school leavers through to university graduates.

Asked to identify which skills were lacking in their new recruits, one told researchers that there were “too many to list”.
