The most in-demand jobs of 2020 have been revealed, and you might not be surprised to hear that a job as a Courier comes out on top.

 The analysis was completed by software migration management company, Quadrotech, who looked at the number of job vacancies and their salaries on employment website, Adzuna, to determine which industries have had the highest growth in job listings this year. 

Although the increase in courier roles, which is presumably a result of the pandemic forcing us to shop online, may not come as a surprise, there was an interesting 671% rise in demand for another role: mental health counsellors. The increased focus on people having access to sufficient mental health services as well as the impact COVID has had on our wellbeing might explain this rise in vacancies.
