ADMINISTRATION, construction and engineering are the sectors that Brits are most keen to get a job within, according to new research.
Analysis of job application data also looked at the industries that have become increasingly applied for in the first six months of the year in comparison with the same period of last year.
Conducted by leading independent job board CV-Library, the research is comprised of data from over 8.2 million job applications made between January to June 2017.
Additional analysis, looking at the wages on offer, suggests that higher salaries haven’t influenced the sectors with increased applications.
