The best place to find a job in the UK has been revealed as Scotland by jobs site Adzuna. The research looked at the number of available posts in comparison with the number of unemployed people in 50 locations across the UK, to highlight the competition for jobs across UK cities. In comparison, Yorkshire was found to be the worst place to find work. There are some places across the country that offer better career opportunities than others.
The job search website has compiled a list of the 10 best and worst cities to find work and discovered that amongst the best were Aberdeen, Cambridge and Reading with on average 1.22 unemployed claimants per vacancy. Aberdeen was found to be the easiest place to find a job, with less than one unemployed person for every job available. In contrast amongst the cities deemed the worst to find work were Hull, Stoke-on-Trent, Southend and Sunderland. Southend was found to have 44.06 people out of employment for each job vacancy.
The survey found that in Aberdeen, which was named the best city to be looking for a job, there were more jobs available than there were people on benefits, which reflects the number of jobs available in this area in comparison with cities in Yorkshire. On the other hand, for each available job in Hull there were 80 people unemployed.
Sales and marketing jobs were amongst the types of jobs most in demand across the country along with engineering and IT jobs, the site found that these jobs were also paying above average salaries. Andrew Hunter from Adzuna commented that: ‘Policymakers should take note of where the jobs are being created and make sure that people are being trained in the right skills in the right locations.’
Brand Recruitment recruits for marketing jobs in Cambridge and across the East of England, including High Wycombe and Milton Keynes who were also named in the best 10 cities to find a job list, and continues to register new candidates on a daily basis who are looking to find a new job in the region.
