Vacancies and jobs in the UK

7. Measuring the data


For more information on how labour market data sources are affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, see the article published on 6 May 2020, which details some of the challenges that we have faced in producing estimates at this time.

An article, published on 11 December 2020, compares our labour market data sources and discusses some of the main differences.

Please be aware that, as a result of ongoing developments to the weighting of Labour Force Survey (LFS) estimates during the pandemic, for our September 2021 publication we intend to revise the LFS-based components of workforce jobs back to the beginning of 2020.

For more information on the changes to LFS weighting methodology through the pandemic please see our article on the LFS Survey weighting methodology.

Impact on production of vacancy and workforce job estimates

Because of social distancing measures leading to the temporary closure of businesses across the UK, there have been some difficulties in collecting data using the Vacancy Survey and the Short-Term Employment Surveys.

Survey response rates were lower than is typical. To protect the quality of our output, we have used alternative sources where possible to inform data. We have used Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) section-level indications from the Business Insights and Conditions Survey (BICS), as well as survey contributor-level comments provided to us over the telephone or electronically, as a guide on whether businesses are operational and likely, or not, to be actively recruiting and to confirm employment figures.


The data in this bulletin come from surveys of businesses. It is not feasible to survey every business in the UK, so these statistics are estimates based on samples, not precise figures.


Estimates of vacancies are obtained from the Vacancy Survey, a survey of employers. Adzuna Online job advert  estimates are also published as part of the Economic activity and social change in the UK, real-time indicators release.


Estimates of jobs are compiled from a number of sources, including Short-Term Employment Surveys (STES), the Quarterly Public Sector Employment Survey (QPSES) and the Labour Force Survey (LFS). STES is a group of surveys that collect employment and turnover information from private sector businesses. In December of each year, the jobs estimates are “benchmarked” to the latest estimates from the Business Register and Employment Survey (BRES).

The STES estimates are drawn for a specified date early in the last month of each calendar quarter. The March 2020 data were from 13 March 2020 before the start of coronavirus (COVID-19) social distancing measures.

For more information on how jobs data are measured, please see the Measuring the data section in our previous release 

More quality and methodology information on strengths, limitations, appropriate uses, and how the data were created is available in the Vacancy Survey QMI and Workforce jobs QMI.

Sampling variability

The sampling variability of the three-month average vacancies level is around plus or minus 1.5% of that level expressed as a coefficient of variation, giving a 95% confidence interval for estimates of approximately plus or minus 20,000.  

The sampling variability of the three-month average vacancies level, for a typical industrial sector is around plus or minus 6% of that level.

UK job vacancies climb above 1 million for the first time ever as labor shortage intensifies | Currency News | Financial and Business News

Companies in some sectors have been scrambling to find workers.

Phil Noble/Reuters

The number of UK job vacancies shot above above 1 million for the first time on record in July, the country’s Office for National Statistics said Tuesday, in one of the clearest signs yet of intensifying labor shortages in some sectors.

UK wages also rose strongly as the economy bounced back, with growth in average total pay jumping by a record 8.8% in the three months to June from a year earlier. However, the ONS said the statistics were partly skewed by the pandemic and that underlying wage pressures were more moderate.

The unemployment rate fell to 4.7% in the quarter to June from 4. 8% in the three months to May. It stood just 0.8 percentage points above the pre-pandemic level seen in the three months to February 2020, thanks in large part to the government’s wage subsidy scheme that has supported companies and workers.

“The robust jobs recovery suggested by business surveys is confirmed by today’s figures, and that is great news,” said Neil Carberry, chief executive of the UK’s Recruitment & Employment Confederation.

“But record vacancy numbers once again emphasise the risk posed by labor shortages in many key sectors.​​ The number of vacancies is now at an all-time high and is still rising, with employers desperate to hire new staff as the economy recovers.”

The pound was down 0.3% on Tuesday morning European time to $1.38, while the UK’s FTSE 100 stock index was 0.

1% lower.

The ONS said there were an estimated 953,000 job vacancies in the May-to-July period, a record high, a surge of 44% compared with the previous quarter. It added that early July survey data showed the number had climbed above 1 million.

Businesses in the arts, entertainment and recreation sector, such as cinemas, galleries and gyms, saw the fastest growth in vacancies in the three months to July. The UK government loosened coronavirus restrictions in the spring, kickstarting a scrabble to find workers. Accommodation and food services companies logged the second-strongest growth.

The UK’s wage-subsidy scheme is closing at the end of September. Samuel Tombs, chief UK economist at consultancy Pantheon Macroeconomics, said he thinks the UK unemployment rate will rise to 5.2% in the final three months of the year.

Ruth Gregory, senior UK economist at Capital Economics, said she thinks the Bank of England won’t start raising interest rates until mid-2023, despite the strong economy.

Yet she said Tuesday’s figures “suggest that the risks are tilted towards wage growth coming in a bit higher and the [BOE] raising rates a bit sooner than we anticipate.”

COVID-19: Job vacancies top one million as economy rebounds from crisis | Business News

The number of job vacancies has topped 1 million for the first time on record as the economy recovers from the pandemic, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said.

Figures published by the ONS also showed the number of employees on payrolls rose by 182,000 last month – though was still 201,000 below pre-crisis levels.

Meanwhile the headline unemployment rate, covering the three months to June, slipped back to 4.7% – down from 4.8% the month before.

Image: Unemployment fell to 4.7%

At the same time annual regular pay growth – a measure that has been skewed in recent months because of the impact of the pandemic on the jobs market – soared to 7.


Chancellor Rishi Sunak said the figures showed the government’s plan for jobs was working, adding: “I know there could still be bumps in the road but the data is promising.”

The figures come after GDP data last week showed the economy bouncing back with growth of 4.8% in the second quarter.

According to the ONS labour market update, vacancies hit a record 953,000 in the three months to July, 168,000 higher than pre-pandemic levels.

Single-month vacancy estimates showed that last month the figure topped 1 million for the first time according to records going back to 2001.

The figures come at a time when many employers say they are struggling to find staff.

Image: The hospitality sector has been among those struggling to find staff

Sectors such as hospitality are among those affected while elsewhere, in-demand lorry drivers are being offered signing-on bonuses worth thousands of pounds to work for major retailers.

Jonathan Athow, ONS deputy national statistician for economic statistics, said: “The world of work continues to rebound robustly from the effects of the pandemic.

“The number of people on payroll was up again strongly and has now grown over half a million in the past three months, regaining about four-fifths of the fall seen at the start of the pandemic.

“Meanwhile early survey figures show that the number of job vacancies passed one million for the first time ever in July.”

Mr Athow added that there was no sign of redundancies starting to pick up ahead of the the government’s furlough scheme winding down.

That may ease fears that the withdrawal of taxpayer support for jobs will lead to temporary pandemic lay-offs becoming permanent.

But the continued acceleration in earnings growth could prove a headache for Mr Sunak as next month’s data would normally be used to calculate the rise in the state pension under the government’s “triple lock” guarantee.

That guarantee means that pensions increase by the rate of average earnings, inflation, or 2.5% – whichever is higher.

Image: Lorry drivers are being offered signing-on bonuses worth thousands of pounds

The Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR), the government’s fiscal watchdog,

has warned that if as some forecasts have suggested, earnings growth hits 8%, it would add £3bn a year to government spending.

However there has already been a hint that the triple lock could be ditched, with the prime minister last month saying there had to be “fairness for pensioners and taxpayers”.

The ONS says the latest earnings figures have been inflated by comparisons with last year when the pandemic first hit the labour market, and since when there has been a fall in the number and proportion of lower-paid jobs.

Stripping these out it estimates underlying regular wage growth at between 3.5% and 4.9%.

Job vacancies in Britain hit record high

Job vacancies in the UK have spiked to their highest recorded level, official figures showed Tuesday, in a further sign that the British economy is rebounding more than anticipated following the lifting of coronavirus restrictions.

With the unemployment rate falling and the number of people on payroll rising toward pre-pandemic levels, wage pressures are clearly building — a development that financial markets suggest will lead the Bank of England to raise interest rates sooner than previously thought as it could further fuel inflation.

The Office for National Statistics revealed that the number of job vacancies rose by 290,000 between May and July from the previous three-month period, to 953,000. That’s the highest level since records were started in 2001.

The increase in vacancies came during a period when most lockdown restrictions were lifted across the UK following the rapid rollout of vaccines. The increase in job vacancies was particularly evident in those sectors, such as arts, leisure and food service, that had suffered most during the multiple lockdowns in the UK.

In further encouraging news, the agency said the number of people on payroll rose by 182,000 between June and July, taking the total to 28.9 million. Still the overall figure is 201,000 lower than before the pandemic struck in March 2020.

“Today’s figures show that the recovery continued to gain momentum through the spring as restrictions eased,” said Tony Wilson, director of the Institute for Employment Studies. “Put simply, labor supply just can’t keep up with employer demand.”

The latest figures have raised hopes that the British government’s decision to bring an end to a salary support scheme it introduced at the outset of the pandemic will not lead to big job losses.

Under the Job Retention Scheme, the government paid 80% of the salaries of those workers unable to work because of lockdown measures. The program, which is being phased out and is due to finish at the end of September, helped support over 11 million people but the number now is down below the 2 million mark as many sectors have reopened, notably hospitality.

“There was no sign of redundancies starting to pick up in our survey data ahead of the furlough scheme beginning to wind down,” said Jonathan Athow from the statistics agency.

As is often the case, more hiring in the economy is leading to higher pay. Tuesday’s data showed annual wage growth including bonuses 8.8% higher, or 7.4% without bonuses, for the three months to June.

With wages surging, there could well be a further uptick in inflation as those benefiting from the higher pay spend more. Inflation is already rising fast on the back of higher energy costs and the Bank of England expects it to rise to 4% this year, which would be the highest level since 2011 and double its target.

Great Britain has a developed and independent economic system, which makes it possible to say that there is work in England, was and most likely will be. This is the most popular country for Ukrainians, Belarusians and, of course, Russians to live, work, move up the career ladder, travel and learn the language.

Working in the UK

You can work in England both seasonally and permanently.There is a demand for blue-collar occupations and the service sector, and there will be a place for highly qualified specialists in 2021. For information on where to look for a job in England, see this video.

Simple jobs in England are very popular. This refers to unskilled work – service personnel in hotels, restaurants and labor in factories.

Material content

Occupations in the labor market in England

There is a shortage of doctors, other health workers (professional nurses), and in the social sphere.Salaries in the UK are different and vary by occupation, here are some categories with averages:

  • IT manager receives 46 362 pounds;
  • 90,019 Programmers and Developers – 44,777;
  • Personal assistants – 28 704;
  • Consultants of the administrative staff – 48 385;
  • Designers and graphic specialists – 24,134;
  • Business Development Managers – £ 29,499.

Men are paid more than women.

Difference in wages of men and women by age

Job Search

Looking for a job in England, the question arises whether it is possible to find it here, the answer will always be unambiguous – those who know how to work will always find a worthy place, and the earnings here will be much higher than in their native country.

The best and worst cities to find a job

Employment in England at first glance seems like something unreal, but it only seems until you start to engage in this process. Serious recruiting agencies are always trying to help with the entry of a client to work as soon as possible. Plus, every month in 2021 in the UK, the number of places where knowledge of the Russian language is required is increasing. This is in addition to the fact that engineers and IT workers are needed all the time.

Number of migrant workers in England 9.0004

The country’s interest in highly professional employees in 2018 is also confirmed by the fact that over the past five years there has been a special program – HSMP, designed to attract such workers to England. Moreover, an English visa received under this program gives the right to work, create your own business, and after a few years, obtain British citizenship.

This is what an HSMP visa looks like

Working in the UK will be a good boost in your career.And upon returning home, a person who has completed English practice will not look for work for a long time. Applying for a job will largely depend on the status of a person. If you already have British citizenship or have a permanent residence permit in England, then there are no restrictions at all.

Number of migrant workers by region

With a residence permit, job search will be limited. This will affect starting a business and changing employers. Pensioners with available means of subsistence will not have to look for work at all, as this is prohibited by the law of England.

Ways to search for vacancies:

  • Printed publications – newspapers;
  • Government employment centers;
  • Recruitment Agencies;
  • Outdoor advertising – sticky advertisements.

UK Employment Center

That is, there are enough options to find a job on your own, even without the involvement of intermediaries. Before committing to it, you must honestly tell the employer about the existing problems with the Law, if any.This will not mean a rejection. Because the check will still be and in its course everything will be revealed, which will lead to an unequivocal deprivation of this work.

Learn more about finding a job in England in this video.

Hiring Rules

After the search has been crowned with success, the employer is provided with an employment contract – labor, where a mandatory clause must be 2 months probation. The contract must include salary, public holidays and weekends, insurance and pension.The law also defines a 4-week paid vacation.

This is what an employment contract looks like in England

The employee will be required to pay tax and make contributions to the National Insurance. It helps pay health and pension taxes. The direct employer will do this himself.
The employee has the following rights:

  1. Equal treatment of your person. Gender, nationality, religion, or health problems do not affect this.
  2. Payments of the same salary, regardless of gender.
  3. Have union membership.
  4. Maternity leave in full.

Specialties in England for foreigners


Many Russian families living in the UK in 2021 need nannies who speak their native language. And since our compatriots are also looking for work in this country, for many women such work will be simply salvation.



If you have a philological education, you can take up tutoring. Such specialists are in demand among all categories of citizens, not only among Russians. After all, many English companies work closely with Russian companies, and knowledge of Russian will not hurt.

Executive Assistant

A lot of Russian-speaking secretaries are required in 2021. If a girl is looking for a similar job, she can expect to find it quickly and get a job.

Work as a secretary

Manager in a travel company or agency for the sale and purchase of real estate

The real estate and tourism market is very well developed. There is always a need for Russian-speaking specialists. After all, there are a lot of such people everywhere and they also go to rest and buy and sell property.

Shop assistant

There are enough tourists from Russia in England, so a Russian girl who is looking for a job in this country can safely contact a boutique, where she will definitely be taken.Every self-respecting similar English store necessarily employs an employee who knows how to communicate with Russians.

Work as a seller

Art critic

A highly specialized profession, but also in demand. London has offices with large auction houses with large departments dealing exclusively with Russian art.

Financier and Economist

The most common professions in 2021 for certified Russian-speaking specialists.

Work as an economist

Advertising and Marketing

Such specialists are the least in demand, but if you find a company that plans to enter the Russian market, then the chance of getting a job will be great.

Social workers

Social work in England involves employment in voluntary sectors. The purpose of these services is to provide a wide range of services. It also focuses on children, the elderly and the mentally retarded.

Social work in the UK includes housing, education, recreation, library services and personal social services.

Social work

Social work in the UK is primarily employment in a service owned by the state or the community department of local government.

How to get a job in England?

Work in England for Russians who are not EU citizens and spouses living in England is possible in two legal ways in 2021.

Availability of a work permit

UK work permit

An employer is found who has agreed to take on a job and is applying for a work visa to the UK, which in English is called a Work Permit.But some requirements must be met:

  • The employer must prove that there is no local employee for this vacancy. It will be easier to do all this if the foreign applicant has a high qualification of a researcher, creative worker or IT specialist;
  • Obligation to work only for this employer. If there are part-time jobs, there must be an agreement with the main employer;
  • If the contract is interrupted by the employer himself, the employee must immediately leave the country.

Work visa to England



It is designed to attract qualified specialists to the country. It is not necessary to get high qualifications in England, you can also in your homeland. To enter the country with this permit, a questionnaire is filled out, and certain points are gained – PBS. If there are enough of them, a visa is opened for a year. But you will need to look for an employer yourself.

In addition, there must be sufficient funds to live in the country until a job is found.With a successful labor activity throughout this period, the opportunity to stay in England is extended for 5 years. And after their expiration, you can safely apply for a residence permit.

Application for HSMP

The number of points is considered as the following indicators:

  • Age of the candidate – young people have more points;
  • Availability of education;
  • by the level of salaries for the last six months;
