UK – Hot jobs for 2014 – 2017

30 January 2014

With increased positivity in the job market, more and more people are looking to move job in the next 12-24 months. A survey from CareerBuilder UK and Economic Modeling Specialists International (EMSI) has compiled the ten hot jobs that are expected to grow over the next few years, based on occupations that are expected to increase their full-time employment figures the most through to 2017.  

Tony Roy, President of CareerBuilder EMEA, commented: “After years of struggling, Britain is trending toward a better job market in the New Year, a feeling expressed by the majority of CareerBuilder clients that we talk to regularly. According to CareerBuilder research, 68% of employers say their business is in better financial shape than 12 months ago and a third plan to hire full-time employees in 2014.”

“The growth in employment over the next three years will be in a variety of industries with varying educational levels, which bodes well for putting larger numbers of people back to work and ultimately reducing the unemployment rate,” he added.
