Covid-19 has had an impact on nearly all aspects of life, including people’s work.
The world of work is changing – and some sectors appear to be in a much stronger position than others.
According to the latest jobs market report from employment website CV-Library, the number of job vacancies in the UK fell by 62.7% in the second quarter of 2020.
And for those jobs that are being advertised, competition is stiff, with the average application-to-job ratio rising by 84%.
The report is the latest in a series of snapshots trying to predict – by looking at online job vacancies – where workplace opportunities might be increasing or shrinking.
So, with more people battling it out for jobs, which industries are actually hiring staff? And which face a more uncertain future?
