Despite the Coronavirus pandemic hitting the UK job market hard, there are some vacancies in key industries that are continuing to grow.
This is according to a recent report from CV-Library, which revealed that job postings and applications dropped by 15.1% and 10.3% respectively last month.
Founder of CV-Library, Lee Biggins, commented, “It’s not surprising that the outbreak of Covid-19 has prevented businesses from moving forward with their hiring plans. With global supply chains disrupted and many organisations forced to close their doors in order to respect social distancing rules, companies have had to change the way they operate and adapt to this new normal. Sadly, this has involved placing existing employees on furlough and even making redundancies.”
Although many industries are of course struggling during this pandemic, the data has shown that job vacancies have increased in some key sectors:
- Public sector roles (up 103.7%)
- Agriculture (up 98.7%)
- Social care (up 17.9%)
- Education (up 2.9%)
- Distribution (up 2.1%)
