Top view of a business meetingBritons who wish to land a job as a marketing manager will have the best job in the U.K. for 2018, according to Glassdoor.

The employment review website ranked marketing management on top of the 25 best jobs this year, with a score of 4.5. Operations management, audit management, finance management and product management completed the top five.

Job Rankings

The list of the best jobs in the UK has been ongoing over the last four years, although this year marked the first time that technology-based jobs failed to join the top 10. However, Glassdoor chief economist Andrew Chamberlain expects artificial intelligence and job automation to affect the employment sector, particularly in human resources and finance.

Glassdoor based its rankings for the top 25 list on the earning potential of a certain job, by using the median annual salary as a guide. Job satisfaction and the number of job openings also served as other factors. Whether or not you intend to work as a marketing manager, there are many other job vacancies in the country that await you.

Job Vacancies

Open positions for shipping jobs in Felixstowe or manufacturing jobs in Greater London likely formed part of 810,000 vacancies in November 2017. Based on Office for National Statistics data, the job vacancy rate in the country reached its highest level since 2001, even if the national employment rate increased 75.3 per cent.

As such, many companies have turned to recruitment agencies and other third-party services to fill vacant roles. Despite uncertainty over Brexit, the record-high increase unexpectedly caused a 2.5 per cent increase in salaries, including bonuses.
