Degree Or Not Degree, That Is The Question…


UK Recruiters Question The Value Of A Degree

A new study reveals how UK recruitment professionals are questioning the value of a degree in the current job market, with over half of those in the industry admitting that if they had their chance again, they would choose NOT to go to university.

The research, conducted by CV Library the UK’s largest independent job board, addressed the country’s leading recruiters to establish the main issues surrounding graduate employment and what it means to have a degree in today’s working climate. Over 700 recruiting experts responded and key findings suggest that the qualification is decreasing in value:

• 50.8% of recruitment professionals would choose not to go to university in this day and age, showing a clear split amongst those that best know the UK job market
• In today’s current climate, 84.1% of recruitment professionals believe a degree is becoming less essential to securing  a job
• Looking forward to 2025, 47.2% believe that degrees will have an even smaller value
• In comparison, 33.6% of recruiters believe that degrees will be of the same value as they are today, leaving just 19.2% that think they will be more important
• The majority of respondents (68.2%) suggest that degrees are only important for securing jobs that demand one
• Under a quarter (23.6%) of job professionals think the number of graduate job opportunities will rise

Results clearly show that the advantages of having a degree are beginning to lessen, unless they are a prerequisite for entering a sector. In addition, due to the suggestion that there is a lack of growth in graduate jobs, it is unsurprising that 66.3% of respondents believe that graduates are having a tougher time today compared to ten years ago.

Despite this, recruiters firmly believe that the most employable candidates are those with both a degree and excellent work experiences, with 90.6% of recruiters favouring this over one or the other.

CV-Library’s founder and managing director Lee Biggins explains: “In today’s competitive job market, it’s unsurprising to see that recruiters have a split opinion on the value of a degree. There has been lots in the media recently regarding the importance of work experience and this really highlights that. Degrees can be a valuable tool to job-hunters, but it’s equally important for candidates to ensure they have a strong balance of work experience and qualifications if they want to be successful in their job search.”

Stay Classy, Pick The Right Job, Know Your Worth

 

It’s Friday, and the Jonothan Bosworth Recruitment Specialists team insist that you ‘stay classy’ – and by that, we mean that you should always value your worth as an employee. Below are some important bits of information in relation to the ‘going rates’ based on the profession you’re in, or looking to move into.

Naturally, ‘money’ alone should never be the only determining factor, but it is a factor that needs consideration nonetheless. The information is not the opinion of Jonothan Bosworth Recruitment Specialists, but there are definitely some good information points here for you to take away…

…Miners and Couriers are the worst occupations in the UK according to the latest research from job search engine; Adzuna.  Translators and Web Developers were crowned as the best jobs of 2013. Doctors and Pilots suffer the most stress at work, while Travel Agents and Supermarket Cashiers have the worst outlook for 2014.

The study, conducted in September 2013, analysed over 2,000 job titles to highlight the best, worst, most stressful and most promising jobs in the UK. Each job title was scored based on 25 different criteria including earning potential, working conditions, competitiveness, unemployment rates and job security. These scores were then combined to produce an overall list of the top 10 best and worst jobs in the UK.

The Worst Jobs of 2013 – Miners and Couriers have the worst jobs in the UK the study has shown. High-pressure deadlines, the lowest income growth potential in the survey and long hours pushed these roles to the top the of “worst” list.  Sous chefs, Electricians and HGV Drivers round out the rest of the worst jobs.

The Best Jobs of 2013 – Taking the crown of best jobs on the market are Translators, Web Developers and Surgeons. These roles boasted the highest levels of job security in the study, some of the highest average salaries (exceeding £85,000 p.a.) and excellent income growth potential of up to 8 times starting salary. Lack of competition, employer demand, rising wages and excellent working environments also resulted in Web Developers being voted one of the most stress free jobs in the UK today.

The Most Stressful Jobs – Pilots & Oil Riggers have the most stressful jobs in the UK, scoring top for emotional and physical stress. Journalists rank as the 4th most stressful career choice, primarily due to highest pressure working environments and a deadline driven culture. Low levels of competition, few deadlines and little physical work have resulted in Librarians and Translators being named the least stressful jobs on the market.

Outlook – The Most & Least Promising Jobs – Roles in the IT and Engineering sectors dominate the best outlook list thanks to average wages growing 3.2% since January 2013 and advertised jobs increasing 23% over the same time period. At the other end of the spectrum, technological advancements and cuts at big firms such as Thomas Cook & The Royal Mail have affected the UK’s job market.  Jobs like Travel Agents, Postmen, Supermarket Cashier and Factory Workers are becoming increasingly redundant in today’s employment market.

Flora Lowther, Head of Research at Adzuna, says “Listing every available vacancy in the UK and studying the behavior of millions of monthly job seekers, gives us a unique insight into employee satisfaction levels and perceptions in today’s job market. Job seekers should be taking note of this research when thinking about their next career move.”
