A new report by Quadrotech, a software migration management company, has analysed the UK job market to reveal the most in-demand jobs of 2020.
By analysing UK job listings on employment website Adzuna over the past year, the report looked at the number of vacancies and the salaries on offer to find out which industries had the highest growth.
Results showed that courier roles are the most popular in 2020. Across the UK, residents are ordering online to ensure delivery of their goods causing an increase in job roles with over 188,000 monthly vacancies – as companies like Amazon’s profits continue to rise.
While businesses focus on continuing trade, the demand for retail roles has also increased as companies ramp up their techniques with nearly 110,000 monthly vacancies.
One job that has significantly increased is mental health counsellors, with vacancies going up by 671% in the past year.
Salaries for the role have also increased as the position comes more in demand, rising by 47.4%, going from £28,906 to £42,619.
Top jobs in 2020
Other jobs in high demand were positions such as cleaners (41,584 monthly vacancines), customer service roles (96,261) and electricians (27,887).
It’s no surprise that essential workers make the top 10, as they’ll always be needed as teachers and government workers remain in demand.
After analysing the number of vacancies advertised per month, Quardrotech found that some of the world’s biggest companies were the top ten most thriving companies – including Facebook, Apple, Google, and Microsoft.
The Goldman Sachs Group came up top with 354 vacancies advertised per month. Coming in second is social networking powerhouse Facebook, followed closely behind by Deliveroo.
With the rapid shift to remote work this year it’s not surprising to see tech companies thriving.
Most thriving companies:
Speaking on the report Nigel Williams, CMO from Quadrotech said: ‘The job market is constantly shifting to meet the demands of employers, employees, and the businesses they serve.
‘The results show us that there’s a clear increase in the new “normal” that comes with 2020 and mental health is leading the forefront of change, as, quite rightly, we start to prioritise caring for our mental as well as physical health.’
