If you are not interested in finance, there are also career opportunities in big media, creative and technology industries, as well as a myriad of other areas.
Reports from the Office of National Statistics in June 2019 showed there were 824,000 jobs available in the UK, and many of these were in London. However, getting the job you want might not be so easy. London may be rife with jobs, but competition is stiff.
The Most Required Jobs and Skills In Demand
The London Economic Plan identified information technology as the main skills in demand in London. Demand for staff in technology roles increased by 44% between July 2018 and July 2019. Job vacancies in financial services remained stable, partly due to some major firms leaving London. On the other hand, demand for IT professionals increased by 25%, with vacancies in sector contributing to 37% of all advertised job roles.
However, the biggest sector for jobs in London is services. The services industry provides about 91% of all jobs in the city. This includes jobs in retail, hospitality, real estate activities, education, social work, and more.
