One sector is healthcare.
In the last three months, there has been an increasing demand for professionals in the healthcare sector and the hospitality and tourism field, job portal Indeed has found.
Since May, job postings for physicians and surgeons have increased 52.6%, whilst those looking for nurses rose by 11.7%.
