CareerBuilder.co.uk and EMSI Release the List of Hot Jobs in London

positive trendLONDON, 11 September 2013 – Has your job search stalled? Do you not know where to send your CV? CareerBuilder.co.uk and Economic Modelling Specialists International (EMSI) have released a list of Hot Jobs for London based on occupations with the greatest job increase between 2010 and 2013. The study uses EMSI’s rich labour market database, which draws from a full range of Government sources including the Business Register Employment Survey and the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings.

“While job growth has been flat over the last few years as the UK economy continues to struggle, there are a variety of occupations that are adding jobs at healthy levels,” said Scott Helmes, Managing Director of CareerBuilder UK. “The good news is that the educational requirements for the growing occupations across London vary greatly, pointing to greater opportunities for all those unemployed; not just those in certain highly skilled fields.”
