Summer 2012 Set to Boost the UK Job Market

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 20, 2012) - This summer, the eyes of the world will be on England. With June and July set to see two of the biggest events in the world taking place in London there is set to be a significant boost to the UK economy and most importantly the job market.

The jobs created by events such as the Olympics and the Diamond Jubilee can be wide ranging from driver jobs, IT jobs, catering and tourism, through to security and cleaning, as well as a great many technical and professional roles.

For those jobseekers looking for innovative ways to set themselves apart from an overcrowded market, being involved in high profile events may well provide the UK workforce with the opportunity to develop some new roles for the future.

Jobs around the UK

The job market in London is set to benefit from the surge in visitors to the nation's capital this summer, but this is also set to filter out to the rest of the UK with various other cities hosting events and requiring an increased workforce.

Even if you're unable to land a Games-time role, there still may be opportunities for those looking for work this summer. Many businesses need to provide extensive cover during the summer for staff that are involved in, or attending the Olympics. So even if you're a temp looking for jobs in Sheffield, hold off taking that summer holiday until after the Games.
