Looking for a new job? Here are VHR’s 10 best sectors to work in 2019.

10. Finance

The Tax and Accounting sector is the happiest industry for job satisfaction, according to job board Monster. Those working in Finance cite a good work-life balance, control over workload and career path and equality of pay and working conditions as the best reasons to work in the industry.

9. Design

The design industry is the UK’s fastest growing sector. Worth over £92 billion, the creative sector is growing at twice the rate of the economy. Experienced and skilled Designers can enjoy a relaxed working atmosphere, opportunities to learn and build your design skills and a social, friendly culture.

Fancy becoming a Design Engineer?

8. Data

Data Analysts will become increasingly more important to global business growth in the next few years. Data is big business: 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created each day, and 90% of the data that exists in the world was generated over the last two years alone.

Companies across industries are actively recruiting for data experts to help them make sense of the vast amounts of data generated and the ever-increasing pace of advancements in technology.

7. Recruitment

Last year saw the launch of 8,488 new recruitment businesses in the UK alone – a 46% increase on the previous year. Recruitment is one of the best industries to work in 2019 for a variety of reasons.

Recruitment consultants effectively run their own businesses, and there are no limits to financial success and career growth. Recruitment has a ‘work hard, play hard’ culture, and recruitment consultancies create a social, fun environment for their employees to enjoy.

6. The Arts

Want to work on your passion every day? Consider a career in the Arts. Much like careers in Design, those working in the Arts have high levels of job satisfaction and enjoy collaborative working styles and inclusive environments. Creative careers provide the opportunity to do what you do best every day, and continually build on your talents and skills

5. Social Media

LinkedIn and Facebook are placed 6th and 7th of Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work in 2019 list. Globalisation, AI, and increased access to and usage of the Internet across the world is driving the popularity and innovation of all social platforms. Working in social media means experiencing a forward-thinking, customer-focused workplace and a culture filled with creativity and new ideas.

4. Research

Research jobs offer some of the most exciting careers for 2019 and beyond. Researchers can investigate challenges across healthcare, pharmaceuticals, biosciences and technology, and be the first to discover solutions that change the world and save lives. Jobs in Research also offer high levels of job safety, job satisfaction and work-life balance.

3. Aviation

Boeing forecasts that the global commercial aircraft fleet will increase by 40% to over 35,000 by 2027. This means that the Aviation industry will need an additional 560,000 pilots and 600,000 technicians by 2030.

Global airlines host a powerful market, with airlines one of the best sectors to work in 2019 for those seeking a travel-based career. Large airlines such as Etihad and Emirates offer fulfilling and exciting careers across many airports around the world.
