The UK occupation list serves to outline the jobs in the UK where there are insufficient workers resident in the UK. Some of the key sectors that are in demand include IT, Healthcare, Engineering, Energy Sector, Creative and social care sector. This graphic outlines some of those roles in this single career poster.
There are some interesting careers mentioned in the shortage list that include dancers and 3 D animators that illustrate some of the more specific roles, however there is more than could be done to encourage young people to consider some of the many STEM careers that are listed here. In particular, its worth mentioning the wide range of engineering occupations that the list details both electrical, mechanical and production engineers. We produce our own range of career posters to this affect in the STEM series but there's plenty more work that guidance advisors and parents can do to steer young people to consider these careers.
