The Grosvenor House on Park Lane, London was host last night to the annual TARGETjobs National Graduate Recruitment Awards, the largest graduate recruitment event in Europe, now in its eleventh year. The awards were presented by Lenny Henry and attended by around 1,400 guests from the world of graduate recruitment. The headline sponsor of the TARGETjobs National Graduate Recruitment Awards 2015 was National Grid.

A record number of 40,000 students and recent graduates from 120 different universities took part in a national survey, conducted each year by international research firm trendence, which identified the most popular graduate recruiters in 15 sectors of work, including three financial sectors. 
The three Finance Sector award winners were:
