Tech jobs making UK employers focus on the future

April 12, 2018  /   No Comments

Tech jobs making UK employers focus on the futureTechnology is not only changing the way we work, but creating brand new industries and roles that have never been seen before.

Such is the impact, job search engine Adzuna in its latest job report has found several titles and roles that were once never thought possible.

The study analysed 1 million+ open and historical roles featured on Adzuna in 2017–2018, and highlighted some of the more unusual roles featuring on the site. Future-facing jobs offered by real employers in recent years include: drone engineer; robot scientist; AI regulatory solutions consultant; data wrangler; chief Brexit officer; driverless car attendant; deputy Snapchat editor; and Bitcoin trader.

Fears of robot invasion, the furore around blockchain and ongoing uncertainty around the Brexit process are just a few of the concerns facing companies of all sizes across Britain today.

While technology and IT departments are common in British workplaces, recent analysis shows a trend of more unusual roles springing up for staff with the right skills. Adzuna’s research revealed some of the most unique solutions UK companies are using to attract top talent and equip their businesses for changing times.

Doug Monro, co-founder of Adzuna, revealed: “Smart employers are always looking out for the next big shift in the job market, and stand ready to adapt and evolve their workforce, and in some cases, their entire business model, to meet the challenges of the future. It’s these companies that will draw the top talent to their doors in times of change, and when the robots DO arrive, they’ll be ready to welcome them with open arms.”
