CareerBuilder UK and EMSI Release Hot Jobs for 2014-2017

With the news of the improving economy, are you now considering finding a new job? Are you planning to do it in the next 12-24 months? CareerBuilder UK and Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. (EMSI) compiled the ten hot jobs that are expected to grow over the next few years*. 

“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,” said Tony Roy, President of CareerBuilder EMEA. “According to CareerBuilder research, 68 per cent 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.”

*The list was based on occupations that are expected to increase their full-time employment figures the most through 2017 across Great Britain. EMSI projects this number by taking three linear regressions based on past trends and adjusting them to the Working Futures industry projections. These linear regressions are based on three segments of data that correspond to the last eight, five, and three years, respectively.
