Glassdoor report reveals 2019's top 25 jobs

The role of Audit Manager is the best job in the UK for 2019, with several HR positions also appearing in the top 25 ranking, according to new research from Glassdoor.

The report highlights the 25 best jobs based on each job’s overall Glassdoor Job Score, which is determined by weighting three key factors equally: earning potential based on median annual base salary, job satisfaction rating and the number of job openings.

While Audit Manager takes the number one spot, HR Manager comes onto the list at number 15, HR Business partner reached number 20, and Engagement Manager hit number 21.

The Glassdoor researchers noted that roles in the technology sector have seen a considerable boost, with six jobs on this year’s list, up from five last year. Data Scientist – the only tech role in the Top 10, has jumped from No. 17 last year to No. 7 with a 4.3 Job Score in 2019.

“There’s no question that emerging technologies designed to grow and scale business, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation are having an impact on the types of jobs employers are hiring for across the country. As a result, we’re seeing a spike in demand for highly-skilled workers in 2019,” said Glassdoor Economic Research Analyst, Amanda Stansell. “With such a healthy job market kicking off 2019, we’re seeing many of these Best Jobs open for people to apply to and get hired at employers across all industries and in all areas of the country.”
