Emily Topping

Even though there are still restrictions due to COVID there are still over 180,000 jobs available right now in the UK, waiting for the right candidate. The world is getting more used to working from home or adapting to its environment. Even with the impact of COVID-19 still looming over some companies’ heads, a lot of businesses have just taken the opportunity to move and adapt into this new world and look for the right people to fill roles that they now need, that they may have never needed before,

So, after researching the current market, these are the current sections that we have found are going to be popular during February and are currently looking to hire new employees.

Programmers and Software Developers

As this pandemic has taken over the way people conduct their lives, there has been a big push for companies to adopt a more digital way of working. This means that people who are good developers, software engineers and programmers are being picked up for very good salaries because of the skills that they possess and how that, in turn, can help companies during this business shift.

This ranges from people that are IT-based to individuals that are willing to learn the skill to further themselves. Education like this too can be done online so there is even a possibility of moving into that area even if you do not have the qualifications yet.

Health Services and Residential Care

Job roles in the health service are usually in high demand but there are more and more people needing help from care workers and health specialists so this demand is only increasing. Also, the wage regarding this work is increasing too which is making it more appealing to the general market.
