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.

Employers should consider getting help from recruiters to fill job vacancies, especially the most important roles. Likewise, job hunters can rely on recruitment firms if they find it difficult to get the attention of companies.

Single and Employed: The Benefits of Being a Security Guard

Security GuardLiving solo means you’re the in charge of your own life. This means you’ll need to manage your finances and time on your own, as well. If you want a job that lets you keep good hours without a ton of paperwork and deadlines, a security guard career might suit you.

Salary – Entry level security guards, even those who’ve spent years in the same company, will not earn much if the business is small or starting out. Different states and company policies, however, can provide you with other benefits such as hazard pay, health cards, and insurance. Quinnstaff.co.nz says that recruitment agencies offer these kinds of openings with manageable requirements, with some even offering training to its selected applicants.

Schedule – A company that works during a specific time, such as restaurants, groceries and businesses inside malls, will need a security guard only when they are open. Some standalone structures may need one or more guards doing the night security shift but otherwise, you shouldn’t worry about literally losing sleep. Expect to change from day, mid, and night shifts every three or four months if your business works 24 hours, though.

Workload – Again, because of the many functions and physical tasks of a security guard, some newbie applicants may not be willing to commit to this career. Basic needs such as physical fitness, vigilance, amicability, and patience are usually part of self-improvement. With a security guard job, you get paid for improving yourself while furthering your career.

Promotion – Every business needs security and they can only truly consider you for promotion if you’ve proven — without a doubt — that you’re worthy of trust. Promotions may come to you after a year or so of top quality performance but remember that, once promoted to a higher position and salary, your responsibilities will increase manifold.

Life as a security guard means you will have constancy and stability. If you work smart and keep a good relationship with your associates, you will go further into your career. Remember to continue to improve in your work and get yourself higher training and certification.
