According to human resources website The HR Director, the most in demand job roles to emerge in 2018 include Blockchain Developer, Brexit Planner, Driverless Car Salesman and Vegan Chef.

The publication, based in the UK, describes the most listed job positions last year, and their data reveals that the role of vegan chef has been a newly in-demand position over the past 12 months. “In line with increasing demand for vegan-friendly food preparation, this role commands an average salary of nearly £30,000, with all live vacancies situated in London and the South East.”

In addition, a newly emerging role for UK businesses is said to be that of Zero Waste Consultant – which is said to pay on average £31,355.

Andrew Hunter, co-founder of Adzuna, comments: “It’s always fascinating to see how developments in the political and technological world are impacting vacancies. As Brexit suddenly became a reality this year, many businesses are bolstering plans for the future through the guidance of a Brexit Planner or Brexit Project Manager.

Issues and trends such as sustainability and veganism have also had a profound impact on the job market, and it’s pleasing to see how brand new job roles have been created to serve demand in these areas. Job roles come and go, but some of the new roles we have seen emerging this year, such as those in the driverless car industry are especially interesting, and could prove an excellent career choice as these industries continue to thrive”
