If you are looking for a change of career in 2022, then this is the sign you have been looking for! The pandemic has caused a surge of new ‘micro-trends’ that will influence demand in the short term. But, there are many job roles that will stay the same as they have for years gone by.
It goes without saying that tech jobs are on the rise. A global digital transformation has occurred. This isn’t just the change to hybrid learning which requires the correct technology, but also things like the reduction in test-based learning. The education sector has seen the biggest shift and needed to adapt. This is why it is one of the most exciting industries to begin a career in. Let’s have a look at some of the other industries which are high in demand for new staff.
This is probably the first sector that springs to everyone’s minds when it comes to a lack of staff. The pandemic has made this issue even more clear. Recent figures have shown that healthcare jobs will far exceed the current crisis.
Nursing is actually the most employable degree. A total of 94% of students getting a job within only 6 months of completing their degree! As a starting point, students should have a diploma in Nursing. so the more students completing the course the more Assessors will be needed too.
As well as physical healthcare providers being short of staff, the demand for mental health jobs has increased substantially following the lockdowns during the pandemic. With more and more people opting for private counsellors due to the long NHS waiting list, the more counsellors are needed.
We have already touched on the topic of education; but at the moment there is a real lack of talent. Secondary school teachers in particular are in a real short supply. There is a lot of room for career progression with teaching, as you will see with both our Level 3 Award in Education & Training and our Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training. If you are even considering going into teaching or education we highly recommend you have a look at both of these courses.
This industry has always had its challenges. Not only has the pandemic affected the supply chain and logistics, but so has Brexit. Job security will never be an issue in this industry; whilst digitalisation will start creeping in over the next few years, workers are still needed for the operations side of things. From business analysts, to planning and distribution managers and logistics managers.
The barrier to entry is also fairly low in this industry. In fact, basic business management and leadership courses would give you a good head start in this field.
Web Development & Marketing
With the world going digital, there has never been a more important time for businesses to be visible online. That means a huge increase in demand for website developers and marketers too. With remote working becoming a new thing, it is even easier to pick up these sorts of jobs at the moment too.
If you are considering a career in digital marketing, then a Digital Marketing Apprenticeship is the best place to start. Allowing you to receive on the job training, whilst getting paid and developing your skills within the industry. Why not take the first step towards a career in an incredibly ‘future proof’ sector?!
Of course this blog wouldn’t be complete without the mention of Assessor qualifications. The great thing about most of the industries we have mentioned is that an apprenticeship is one of the best entry levels into a new field. As well as earning while you learn, you can gain real life work experience in a supportive environment. Remember, all apprentices need to go through End-Point Assessments, so Assessors are always going to be in need.
