            STEM Skills Leading Workplace Diversity…

            7th June 2023

            Sky’s analysis of the latest census data looks at how roles have changed in the past 10 years. 27.8 million people of working age in England and Wales said they were in employment at the time. Here are some key points from the analysis:

            1.A Shift to Data and Computer Programming

            The most popular jobs have changed as technological advances create new roles. Computer programming has seen one of the biggest rises in employee numbers, with an additional 274,000 professionals working in the sector, compared with the last census in 2011. This represented the biggest change among the top ranking professions over the time period, climbing from 14th most common in 2011 to 8th in 2021. Financial services dropped in the rankings furthest, from 10th to 13th place. There are now more people employed in computer programming and consultancy than in financial services, including in London.

            2.Jobs by Gender

            The most male dominated professions were construction and building roles (over 99%). The professions with the highest number of women were midwifery (99%) and nannies (98.1%).

            97% of early education and childcare practitioners were women. However, in higher education roles, such as university lecturing, there was a much more even split, with 48% women. This matches the proportion of women in the wider employment population.

            There is good news for gender equality in some professions, with younger women making progress in science and engineering. Although male engineers outnumber women by 10 to one in the 50 – 54 age group, there is a younger cohort of women making up ground. Nearly half of women working in engineering are 16 – 34.

            3.Roles by Age

            Sports and hospitality roles were among the youngest of those surveyed, with 79% of professional sports players and 77.5% of coffee shop workers aged under 35. Elected representatives (including councillors and MPs) at 37.5 % and farmers at 29% have the highest proportion of workers ages 65+.

            4.Which Roles are Most Popular?

            The top 10 most common roles employ 5.5 million people, representing one in five of the working population. There are over 1.1 million workers currently employed in sales and retail positions across England and Wales, making it by far the most common job type. This is followed by care workers (856,000), cleaners and domestics (596,000), other administrative (591,000) and warehouse operatives (472,000).

            5.Common Concerns

            New polling suggests a quarter of people are concerned that their role is at risk due to artificial intelligence (AI). The polling, carried out by Opinium for Prospect, a trade union for tech experts and other specialist roles, also shows that 58% of workers believe the government should set rules around the use of AI to protect workers’ jobs.

            The world of work has transformed and adapted in the past 10 years. Though some of the figures are as expected there is some optimistic news, particularly the number of younger women increasing in science and engineering. AI has huge potential for growth and to transform society, with the sector already contributing £3.7 billion to the economy and employing 50,000 people in the UK. With such high levels of workers concerned by the effects of AI on job security, rules should be addressed at governmental level.

            MD Comment

            As ever the workplace is in a perpetual state of evolution, with the past 10 years showing how technological advances and social awareness have played significant roles in shaping workplace dynamics. As a STEM Recruiter it’s great to see the gender balance changing in science and engineering. A change which will have huge benefits to the sector for decades to come and will likely see diversity accelerate across many sectors as modern post-covid work patterns such as hybrid and WFH increase access to the workplace.
