Regional Trends Report November 2018 – Southern England

APSCo and Vacancysoft

November 2018

Overall, vacancies in the South will have increased by 26% this year compared to last year, where the suggestion is that the immediate dip in the aftermath of the referendum has now been overcome. Key hotspots include:

  • Fintech: The UK has seen a lot of investment into the fintech sector and was the leading country in Europe in terms of fintech investment for the first half of 2018.
  • Consumer Goods & E-commerce: In a sign that e-commerce is finally taking off, job creation has been explosive in consumer goods and services companies, but specifically for IT and digital roles
  • Telecoms: As cyber security becomes more prevalent, so telecoms companies are morphing into becoming security specialists, with Vodafone specifically making this a central point of hiring, with over 500 vacancies for IT security specialists this year. That combined with the race for 5G is creating a bonanza for the sector.
