Which jobs were most-viewed of 2018?


In a year that saw royal births and marriages dominate the headlines, LinkedIn has revealed that the most-viewed jobs of 2018 have mirrored the news agenda.

Between them, these top 25 jobs received over 900K views on LinkedIn.

Three of the most-viewed jobs of 2018, including the number two spot, involve working closely with the royal family, as a Communications Assistant (no.2), Private Secretary to Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne (no.10) and Communications Officer (no.24).

With over 70,000 views, the most-viewed job is for a role at Boston Consulting Group. The organisation is frequently featured in “best places to work” lists, and was ranked at number ten in LinkedIn’s Top Companies 2018, which could reflect the importance that jobseekers are placing on workplace culture.

Meanwhile, traditionally well-paid roles in finance and property are joined this year by jobs with more of a lifestyle focus, such as the Travel Content Producer for MTV and Social Media trainee for Jo Malone.

Other companies featured on the list include Chanel and Barclays, who are looking to the future and offering e-business and software developer roles.

Darain Faraz, Careers Expert at LinkedIn, said: “Every year we love seeing the breadth of jobs that are piquing the interest of the Great British public - and this year is no different. From the royal family to Chanel, and Jo Malone to Barclays, job-seekers across the UK are turning to their LinkedIn community to search for their next career move.

"It’s interesting to see more of a focus on technology this year, with roles such as Java Developer and Data Scientist sitting alongside the more “traditional” professions such as architect and analyst.”
