Revealed: UK's most in demand jobs – Yahoo Finance UK

The pandemic, along with climate change, Brexit, digitalisation and workplace inclusion has shaped the UK’s top jobs, new data revealed.
Continued disruption to the workplace and an increasing “war for talent” has seen a number of HR and talent focused roles featured among the fastest-growing jobs in the country, as an "astonishing" two-thirds of workers in the UK say they are considering changing jobs in 2022, LinkedIn said.
As Brexit leads to new rules around customs, imports and exports, customs officer was the fastest growing job in the country, while import specialist came in at number three.
Machine learning engineer was in second place, while business development representative and chief HR office rounded off the top five.
“We’re seeing a raft of new job opportunities being created as businesses continue to adapt to the pandemic and broader macroeconomic factors,” said Janine Chamberlin, head of LinkedIn UK.
Meanwhile, candidates are being increasingly selective about the roles they apply for and the companies they move to – with workplace flexibility, attention to employee wellbeing and culture being the critical factors in attracting top talent, Chamberlin added.
The report also found men more likely to be hired into fastest-growing roles, which the report said was “a worrying gender imbalance”.

For seven of the 20 roles, men accounted for at least 70% of hires. Women accounted for more than 70% of chief HR officer and diversity and inclusion manager hires.
While customs roles were fairly balanced, engineering roles – which are shaping the future of technology and likely to continue to grow in the future – were dominated by men and accounted for a quarter of the list.
Research also found more than two-thirds (67%) of people in the UK are considering changing roles in 2022, with improved salary (37%) and a better work/life balance (29%) being the factors most likely to make people move jobs.
Candidates are more picky: they now view 1.5 times as many jobs as they did in 2019 before applying.
To help job seekers, LinkedIn is launching a Jobs Bootcamp – a series of live events on LinkedIn, featuring industry and career experts who will share practical career advice and job seeking tips.
UK hiring increased sharply in November along with a drop in overall candidate supply, as businesses continued to try and rebuild their workforces following the COVID-19 pandemic, a report from last year showed.

WARSAW (Reuters) -Poland's central bank could hold rates next month or opt for a small increase, governor Adam Glapinski said on Thursday, amid concerns that high borrowing costs could weigh too much on the economy. Central Europe's monetary policymakers were the quickest last year to begin raising interest rates and accelerated the pace this year as inflation surged, but some are starting to slow or possibly end their tightening cycles. The Czech central bank was the first to call a halt to its rate-hike cycle in August, leaving rates at 7.00%, although it has not completely shut the door on the possibility of another rate increase.

A DAO is a new type of organisation that utilises blockchain technology and promises to radically change the way we work.On this week's episode of The Crypto Mile our host Brian McGleenon sat down with the co-founder of SyndicateDAO Will Papper to find out more about this new concept that is attempting to turn the traditional corporation on its head. The web3 term DAO is short for decentralised autonomous organisation. For those not seasoned in crypto-jargon, decentralisation describes how power, data and decisions are spread across many individuals or nodes on the blockchain, making a more democratic system that has no single point of failure. The word autonomous describes the process of using the blockchain to automate everything from payment transactions, to legal contracts and to execute decisions within organisations.
