Continuing with our series of articles about the sector trends in the UK at JobisJob now we analyse the evolution of the Health sector. As in the previous article about the IT-Telecomm sector, we focus on the jobseeker’s interest and the job vacancies posted between March and May of 2017.
In this article, we will be carrying out an in-depth analysis of the South African job market for the first 4 months of the year (January 2017 – April 2017). We have based the analysis on Job Market Insights, our state-of-the-art big data tool, which provides a complete and accurate cross-sectional overview of the job market.
Looking back, we can see how over the years globalisation has transformed cultural identities, consumption patterns and employment. Today’s citizens buy and sell things over the internet, connect with people from all over the world and adopt blurred, global identities rather than the strong national identities of the past.
In the face of this global and homogenising trend, the local is asserting its position and importance as a guarantee of authenticity and uniqueness. Local agents are taking advantage of the space of flows and organising themselves around self-management processes, virtual networking and pop-up stores, increasing their scope to levels that were previously impossible. At JobisJob we are going to analyze this trend for the transformation of the local into a global phenomenon and, in order to better understand it, we will be interviewing Alexandra Cánovas and Martaé Martinez from Las CulpaSS (The Guilt), a growing fashion brand that is leading the way with its products “sewn with rage and care” for the world.
At JobisJob, we are now looking in depth into the health of the IT-Telecomm sector workforce in the UK, corresponding to the 1st quarter of 2017. The labour market trend in the IT sector is being approached from two perspectives:
- Behaviour of the applicant for employment. We have analysed the job applicant’s interest in this area through their search behaviour.
- Labour supply of the sector. To delve into the trends of the job offers in the IT sector, we have used Job Market Insights, our state-of-the-art Big Data tool that offers a personalised, accurate and cross-cutting analysis of the UK labour market.
Nowadays the importance of digital skills is beyond all possible doubt. Since computer science began surrounding us, the number of these skills required by companies has increased dramatically. Recruiters use social media to look for candidates and people search jobs on job boards. Digital Networking has overcome traditional methods and NGO’s use it to promote their activity. Digitalization has changed every single aspect of our lives.
Governments are aware of this and have carried out programmes to develop digital skills among the population, but… what’s the current state of this situation? We interviewed Gabriel Brezoiu, General Manager of the Group of the European Youth for Change (GEYC) and asked him about his work helping young people develop their digital skills.
In his own words, GEYC is a Romanian established organisation active at European level. We are empowering young people to create a positive change in their community by taking advantage of the digital tools.
