The total volume of online job adverts grew by 2% on 15 October 2021 from the previous week to 143% of its February 2020 average.

"Transport, logistics and warehouse" remains the category with the highest volume of job adverts relative to its February 2020 average level, with the volume now over four times higher than the period shortly before the first UK lockdown, according to data from Adzuna.

The volume of job adverts in "transport, logistics and warehouse" is over four times as high as the February 2020 average level, having increased by 6% from the previous week.

Out of 28 job advert categories, 19 saw a weekly increase in the number of online job adverts while 6 decreased and 3 were unchanged. The largest weekly increase was in "sales" roles, which rose by 34% because of a large number of adverts from a single employer.

Meanwhile, the largest week-on-week decreases were in "construction and trades” roles along with those in the "domestic help” category, which fell by 15% and 12% respectively.

Of all the categories, only job advert volumes in “energy, oil and gas” and “legal” roles are below their February 2020 average level.
