Most companies now rely heavily on social media to get their name out there so anyone who is experienced in this area is worth their weight in gold. Usually you will come from some kind of Marketing or Media background. Starting salaries for a social media role can be from £15,000 per annum.
Being an expert in Marketing is very beneficial to a company. You may have done a Marketing or Media Degree and have experience in writing press releases, updating websites and making them attractive to your audience as well as full of new news and updates to keep them interested. Working in marketing is all about ensuring that you get a company’s name with their services and or products out there for anyone to see.

# Website Design/Developer

You will have a creative nature to do this role and be able to come up with new ideas to make people’s websites different from their competitors.
# Supply Chain Consultants
With the retail and manufacturing demands, the role of Supply Chain Consultants is on the increase. They will be employed to help them assess if they are operating in the best ways for their business, look at whether building a new warehouse would be better etc. Working in this type of role means that you will have a great deal of experience in this area probably degree educated in supply chain.
# Retail Specialists
With retail on the increase, being a specialist in this area is big business as you will be required to predict what you can do next to increase retail figures and to keep your staff and the company motivated into doing well in sometimes quiet times.
# HR Managers
With all the changes in companies, HR Managers are in demand for restructuring purposes and generally providing advice and keeping businesses within the employment law when dealing with their employees.
Electricians are one of those skilled work areas that is always in demand. People who find a good electrician to call upon usually hang onto them and this is the same for businesses when their business is heavily focussed on electrics which most businesses are these days.
Again Plumbers are another of those skilled work areas that are essential to every day work. At some point everyone will have dealing with plumbers and if you operate as a business then you may need plumbers on a daily basis to fit bathrooms, deal with leaks etc.
Nurses are always in demand, there are never enough nurses. This is a very hard role, hard to train to be a nurse and hard when working as a nurse but very rewarding at the same time.
Working as a Teacher, there will always be children needing education and therefore the demand for teachers across the country is always high for variety, new skills and new regulations within education.December 20, 2014 at 5:46 pm #34597
It’s great that people can read this thread, because if they’re thinking about a new career, it’s a good idea to see which jobs actually need to be filled first. There’s no point in training for a career when there’s no job opportunities in the area where you live, for example. So you’re better making a plan with the knowledge here to know what types of things are available to you.
