Employment & Professions

If you are looking to start a career in the health or medical sector then you couldn't have chosen a better time. Opportunities in both the private and public sectors are on the increase, and any skills you have in these areas are in demand.

In 2003 the UK public health sector created 63,000 additional posts, and together with the posts developed in education, represented the fastest growing public sector as far as jobs were concerned. Demand in the private sector is strong too as new technologies increase the need for skilled professionals. This creates healthy competition between the public and private sectors, driving up wages in the public sector as they try to secure your services.

To give you some insight into the demand for health & medical related skills, newly qualified optometrists located anywhere in the UK could easily command a salary of £30,000 in mid 2004. An experienced optometrist would be offered no less than £35,000 while an opportunity for an associate dentist in the South East was being offered at £50,000 per annum at the time of writing.

No matter what your skills set there are opportunities out there that are just waiting to challenge you. For more information on employment opportunities and professions please review the resources on our site.
