Careers of the future
Using the most up-to-date occupational research, this guide has been produced to showcase 40 top jobs in 10 key occupations that our analysis of the UK job market suggests will be crucial over the next decade. The aim is to inspire young people about the wide range of jobs that are out there, inspiration which they can use when mapping a career pathway. From the 40 jobs listed, we have picked 12 examples of some of the most exciting and rewarding jobs that we believe will present young people with a good mix of opportunity, reward, and long-term potential – all key aspects people should be considering when making their career decisions. We highlight what each of these dozen occupations entails, from the skills and attitude required to longer-term growth predictions and, crucially, how people can start to engage with this sector, and make it a career they can aspire to.
