10 Most Popular Industries For Job Searches

We may only be a short way into 2018 but jobseeking trends and hot spots are already emerging...

New data from leading independent job site CV-Library has found that construction and engineering jobs were the most searched for by candidates last month, following the liquidation of construction giant, Carillion in January.

The data, which analysed over 55 million sessions on CV-Library’s site in January 2018, found that the top 10 most searched industries include:

Construction – 779,179 searches

Engineering – 660,858 searches

Administration – 490,741 searches

Manufacturing – 342,882 searches

Driving – 321,069 searches

Education – 244,342 searches

Finance – 212,880 searches

Social Care – 203,262 searches

Sales – 198,928 searches

Customer Service – 197,071 searches

There was a staggering 70% increase in candidate applications in January 2018 but while this fierce competition may seem like bad news for candidates, the UK also saw jobs increase by an impressive 38% over the same period, meaning there are plenty of roles for job hunters to choose from.
