# Website Design/Developer

With all the changes in companies, HR Managers are in demand for restructuring purposes and generally providing advice and keeping businesses within the employment law when dealing with their employees.

# Electricians

Electricians are one of those skilled work areas that is always in demand. People who find a good electrician to call upon usually hang onto them and this is the same for businesses when their business is heavily focussed on electrics which most businesses are these days.

# Plumbers

Again Plumbers are another of those skilled work areas that are essential to every day work. At some point everyone will have dealing with plumbers and if you operate as a business then you may need plumbers on a daily basis to fit bathrooms, deal with leaks etc.

# Nurses

Nurses are always in demand, there are never enough nurses. This is a very hard role, hard to train to be a nurse and hard when working as a nurse but very rewarding at the same time.

# Teachers

Working as a Teacher, there will always be children needing education and therefore the demand for teachers across the country is always high for variety, new skills and new regulations within education.

It's great that people can read this thread, because if they're thinking about a new career, it's a good idea to see which jobs actually need to be filled first. There's no point in training for a career when there's no job opportunities in the area where you live, for example. So you're better making a plan with the knowledge here to know what types of things are available to you.
