Job growth expected to continue across GB' top metropolitan areas

CareerBuilder UK and Economic Modelling Specialists Intl. (EMSI) compiled the list of five hot jobs that are expected to see the greatest growth in some of Britain’s largest cities and their surrounding areas*.

“Economic indicators both at home and across the Eurozone continue to suggest that the slow climb back from the recession is continuing and is supported by the positive hiring trends expected in Britain’s largest cities,” said Scott Helmes, Managing Director of CareerBuilder UK. “Great Britain saw jobs grow 4 per cent from 2010 to 2013, with London expanding by nearly 6 percent, even as the country dealt with a stalled economy. Now, as economic conditions slowly improve, job seekers can expect to see more variety in the open positions employers are looking to fill.”

"London receives the majority of attention around job growth but other regions in the country are experiencing encouraging growth as well,”said Dr. Sanja Licina, Senior Director, Workforce Analytics. "The interesting part of our research is the occupations that will see the greatest increase in the future, are not necessarily the same positions from the past. This shows how the British economy is evolving and how important it is for organisations to keep a constant pulse on which positions will be more challenging for them to fill in the longer term.”

* CareerBuilder and EMSI used the ONS criteria to identify the built-up areas, which has also been the criteria used for the 2011 Census.
