Still hiring during Lockdown

Popular Jobs during Lockdown

Retail, Logistics & Warehousing

There's no surprise that many food retailers have announced record sales, as have online shopping sites and stores that are now offering on-line sales while their stores are closed. As a result retail staff, drivers and roles in logistics and warehousing are in very high demand.

Care & Medical

There has also been a sharp increase in job ads for care workers and nurses, as hospitals, care facilities and elderly care homes manage the impact of Covid-19.


Global pharmaceutical companies continue to remain busy also, as they play a crucial role in the development and manufacturing of essential drugs.


The childcare sector also continues to recruit, but this is an area that's always struggling to recruit.

Security and Cleaning

There has also been a marked increase in the number of job vacancies for security and cleaning jobs. These empty buildings till have to be kept secure and maintained.

Take Away Food

Of course Take Aways are flying at the moment, so there's a constant need for staff in this area and delivery people, particularly for those restaurants and cafes that have now turned from restaurant service to delivery as they pivot their business to survive.


A large number of charitable organisations are still recruiting for both paid and voluntary roles, as they struggle to cope with the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic is having on their clients.
