Changes In Uk Job Sectors (2001-2010)

Recommended Posts

This single graphic sums up what is so very wrong with the UK. All you need to know is:

Conservation and environmental protection officers +188%

Leisure and theme park attendants: +107%

Career advisers: +78%

"factory workers": -50%

Assemblers of electrical products: - 69%

They forgot to include:

Estate agents: +500%

Mortgage advisers (web-browser and printer operatives): +800%

Analysis of government statistics by The Times shows that there were 188 per cent more “conservation and environmental protection officers” at the end of June — 34,000 — than at the equivalent point in 2001 helping to oversee nature reserves and sites of special scientific interest. They are joined by leisure and theme park attendants, whose ranks have swelled by 107 per cent to 23,000, and driving instructors, who number 42,000 compared with 23,265 in 2001. There are 65,000 sports coaches, compared with fewer than 39,000 in 2001.

The gains reflect the increasingly service-driven economy, as well as the decline of traditional manufacturing trades. The number of people assembling electrical products fell by 69 per cent to 33,000 over the same period, and there was a 65 per cent decline in sewing machinists and 58 per cent in toolmakers.

Growth in the ranks of beauticians (up 60 per cent between 2001 and 2010), physiotherapists (up 64 per cent) and fitness instructors (up 46 per cent) reflected a rise of “navel gazing” professions focused on making people look and feel better, he said.
