The Analysis of the World Web Search Volume of Jobs.ac.uk

We mainly see the United Kingdom on the map of the national and regional world web search volume of jobs.ac.uk. The color of the country is so heavy that we can see it clearly. In other words we can not see other parts of the world for the color of these parts is much lighter

 When it turns on the city rank of the web search volume, we see the United Kingdom takes up the leading position on the list and its search volume is 100%. Although Ireland is the second one on the list, its search volume is much smaller than that of the UK.

It is obvious that the web search volume of the United Kingdom is no. 1 as the United Kingdom is the birth place of the web service of jobs.ac.uk. According to www.jobs.ac.uk, the service of jobs.ac.uk is attracting the most talented and qualified people from the UK, which leads a huge search to this web service in the UK.

In fact this service is also attracting genius from Europe and across the world according to www.jobs.ac.uk. It has also helped many organizations worldwide to recruit the qualified staff like leading universities in the world, research organizations and charities. These explain why some other countries can be on the list.

For the city rank of the web search volume, Oxford is the first one on the list and the next are Cambridge and Leicester. We have known that jobs.ac.uk is a service that recruits these qualified and talented people from the leading universities of the UK. For Oxford and Cambridge, they are not only the leading universities of the UK but also they are the ones of the world. It explains why the web search volume of the two cities is so big. Actually there are many famous universities in the UK. They are located in outstanding cities of the UK so it is the reason to explain the volume of the other cities is on the top ten.

Skills shortages posing problems for industry

British companies are on the verge of a skills timebomb, it has been suggested.
Speaking at a Manchester conference, the trade union, Unite, said that urgent action needs to be taken to plug the skills gap by providing decent skilled apprenticeships, which could help to boost the career development of young people.

According to Tony Burke, assistant general secretary at Unite, the skills shortages in the UK have been caused by the failure to create enough new skilled apprenticeships for young people.

He said: "Decent, skilled apprenticeships today will translate into the skilled workforce of tomorrow - that should be the goal for British manufacturing and our science-based industries.

"We need a new eco-system for skills in the UK. The Technical Apprenticeship Service model is one of the ways forward - providing skilled apprenticeships, with decent pay and working conditions."

Last month, specialist jobs board jobs.ac.uk published similar findings and said that 30 per cent of companies were finding it tough to source new talent.

Oil and gas industry facing severe skills gaps

Skills shortages are creating severe problems in the oil and gas industry, new research has revealed.

According to an article published by HR magazine, there is a lack of young engineers in the sector and the only way to tackle this is to promote the industry to young children in a bid to increase the number of people wanting to take up a career in oil and gas.

Steve Harvey, HR director at Subsea 7 said that more also needs to be done to encourage women to pursue career development goals in the industry.

He told HR magazine: "Skills shortages is a problem in the oil and gas sector we have known has been coming for a while.

"But it has got to a tipping point, where organisations are genuinely worried."
Many companies in the sector, according to Mr Harvey, are increasing their graduate programmes and training initiatives in a bid to attract more professionals.

His comments coincide with research published by jobs board jobs.ac.uk last month which showed that 30 per cent of organisations found it difficult to attract the right people into their companies.
