Top job postings

These tables show the top job postings in Buckinghamshire, the South East, and England. There is also information on job posting intensity in each of these regions, which is the number of postings there were for each unique job.

From May 2020 to May 2022 there were a total of 95,728 unique job postings for jobs in Buckinghamshire. For a similar period, the South East saw 2.06 million unique job postings, while England had a total of 12.99 million unique job postings. Posting intensity was 3 to 1 for all the three regions, meaning that for every 3 job postings, there was on average 1 unique job.


Buckinghamshire has an ageing population with a high number of people aged 65 and over, and the jobs which were most advertised or posted were for care workers and nurses.

This is similar to the South East where nurses and care workers were the most sought after professions, according to job postings for each region. In England as a whole however, the top job postings were for programmers and software development. The top 10 sought after professions, according to job postings for each region are given below.
