Analysing international job searches – where do people want to work?

Indeed, a job site which lists jobs from companies in over 50 countries, have recently conducted research into the location of job searches and postings across the world. From this, they have built up a wealth of knowledge as to where jobs are searched for and posted, leading to a number of interesting results emerging in regards to both the UK and European jobs markets.

The report tracked the number of external candidates searching for jobs within countries, as well as their preferred location and the amount of people searching overseas for work. In looking at the report, we focused on the results of the UK and European markets.

Perhaps the most interesting result in the survey is that the UK is the third highest country in terms of people’s desire to work there globally. There are further results, such as the number of external searches within a country, and searches from within that country externally, in the full article.

20% of UK Workforce has a Science Job

The Financial Times has reported that approximately one fifth of the UK workforce has a science based job.

5.8 million people are scientists or use science skills daily, the Science Council has discovered in a recent study. The number includes ‘secondary science workers’ such as nurses or software engineers. Scientists were found to be in industries as diverse as education, finance and farming, as well as more traditional scientific sectors, such as the chemical industry.

Chief executive of the Science Council, Diana Garnham, has said that secondary science roles can be “found literally everywhere in the economy.” The research indicates that by 2030, there could be over 7 million people involved in science in some way, prompting Diana Garnham to say “the research begins to explain… why there is such huge demand for people with science qualifications.”

Cornwall Science Park to Create 750 Jobs

Goonhilly space facility, Cornwall, is being turned into a science park with the aim to create 750 jobs, reports thisiscornwall.co.uk.

GES Ltd, who own the site, applied for a £7 million grant to accelerate the proposals, claiming businesses such as QinetiQ are interested in involving themselves with the site. The UK Space Agency is also said to be interested in the site’s development. The site will have links to various universities, allowing them access to the facilities which will “provide an environment for collaboration between industry and academia.”

The site is expected to become a scientific, technological and engineering hub, with opportunities for businesses in those sectors being put forward alongside the application for the government grant. GES’ Ian Jones has said with the funding, “we can accelerate this opportunity and create high volumes of high-tech jobs, which will have significant knock on benefits for Cornwall.”
