According to a recent study by Jobisjob, the labour market in the UK is alive and well especially for those in the IT and Business sectors.
Infographic depicting the latest trends in the UK Labour Market
Online PR News – 18-December-2013 –London, UK - After carefully studying data on over 7 million job adverts posted on jobisjob.co.uk between January and June 2013, Jobisjob has released a compelling picture of the current state of the Uk Labour Market through the 1st semester infographic included here http://www.jobisjob.co.uk/blog/2013/10/uk-labour-market-trends-q1-and-q2-2013-infographic/ Companies in the IT and Business related sectors are hiring and the market figures examined corroborate this finding.
IT and Engineering rule
Over 18.5% of the millions of job adverts published on Jobisjob.co.uk between Jan – Jun are related to IT. Additionally over 50% of the job offers published in the first half of this year fall into the categories of IT, Engineering, Finance and Sales. This bodes well for individuals looking to work in these sectors considering that the UK employment rate is still hovering around 7.7%. Although the unemployment rate is falling in 2013, and there are positive signs of economic recovery, the North East and North West are still seeing higher unemployment levels than the South East and London respectively. This is reflected in the infographic by the regional distribution of job adverts as the highest percentages are being published in the greater London area.
“The goal of Trends is to make it easier for someone who is looking for work by providing a snapshot of where the best chances of being hired are and what industry gives the most options for success in the job market.”
Business related job titles and Permanent positions are in demand
Business Development Managers, Project Managers, Account Managers and Sales Executives are the most sought after roles at the moment. The trend is expected to continue in the second half of 2013. According to recent reports, figures show people looking for work in the UK are accepting part time positions because of the lack of full time positions available. The results of the infographic contradict this and show that the most predominant type of positions being offered right now are both full time and permanent. Recruitment agencies agree; depending on the industry the UK has a healthy labour market, and work is available especially in the sectors detailed above.
With Jobisjob’s recent launch of Trends, which uses figures from an extensive database, there is the potential to delve deeper into the labour market. The goal of Trends is to make it easier for someone who is looking for work by providing a snapshot of where the best chances of being hired are and what industry gives the most options for success in the job market.
