New Job/New Year

Posted on

New year, new you. As you set your goals for the new year, a new job can help you achieve a fresh start. A career change sounds ideal if you want to venture more into your passion and pass off the dreadful job you have. A new position can give you the challenge and fulfillment you need.

A new job can:

  • Give you an opportunity to meet new people
  • Encounter different challenges
  • Broaden your mindset
  • Give you a work-life balance
  • Give you a better pay

A new job can help you inch closer to your goals. You don’t have to stay in the same place forever.

Where to Start

Foremost, the UK Job market has plenty of vacancies that need filling. Daily, companies experience staff turnover that needs replacing. In October 2021, the number of job vacancies in the UK increased by 388,000 to 1,172,000. In 2020, this figure experienced a decline due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Currently, a quick new job search can reveal plenty of job vacancies you can apply to:

  1. Grab hold of your CV and update it. Be sure to enlist all your qualifications and experiences
  2. Update your LinkedIn profile and make sure it aligns with your resume
  3. Reach out to recruiting agencies with your resume and the type of position you desire 

It is also best to own your accomplishments and not shy from selling yourself to various recruiters.

Job Industry in the UK

The UK continues to face a shortage of skilled workers. The common sectors facing shortages are hospitality, manufacturing, health, and social care. A majority of the workers in the UK are migrants who relocate to the country to work.  


In the health care sector, the UK continues to face a shortage of nurses. The country requires approximately 36,000 nurses to fill vacant positions. If you are a nurse willing to work overseas, this is an excellent opportunity for you.


The country also has a shortage of pharmacists with a vacancy rate of about 8%. As a trained pharmacist, you have an opportunity to work in the UK.


Being a developed country, the UK continues to face transitions in industrialization, creating the demand for engineers. In the manufacturing sector, there is an acute shortage of skilled engineers. Whether you are a civil engineer, electrical engineer, or mechanical engineer, you have an opportunity for a new job venture in the UK.

Secondary Teachers

There is a high demand for modern foreign language, math, computer science, and physics teachers. You can also apply to work in the UK as a secondary teacher. For the first four years, you can teach in the UK without a Qualified Teacher Status; however, you should consider applying for it after the four years elapse.

There is also a high demand for graphic designers within the UK. The best part about graphic designers is working as a freelancer and earning about 18,800 pounds annually.
