Specialist financial services recruitment agency Hamlyn Williams has announced plans to create 100 new graduate jobs as it takes on new premises in Cardiff. The move is being supported by a grant from the Welsh Government of over 500,000 GBP and the decision to open in Cardiff was hailed as a great success by the Government's Economy Secretary. A spokesperson for Hamlyn Williams commented that it was expected that the company would recruit some of its staff from the graduates of Cardiff University, which now offers financial services degree courses.
