Summary List Placement

Job openings have plunged during the COVID-19 lockdown in the UK. Unemployment reached a two-year high in July, and the pandemic has claimed 750,000 jobs since March. 

But some jobs continue to be in high demand among employers — particularly essential roles such as care workers. According to the job site CV-Library, care professional vacancies have risen in 2020 compared to 2019. In total, nine job titles had more than 1,000 vacancies listed between June and August on CV-Library, the site said in data given to Business Insider. All of the openings except one had a salary below the national annual average of £30,500 ($39,942).
