Good news for some, bad for others on jobs
MANAGERIAL and professional jobs have increased in the past year while the number of electricians, plumbers, teaching assistants, police officers and nursing auxiliaries has fallen, a study reveals.
There have been big gains for production managers and directors in manufacturing, up by 13 per cent, human resource managers (19 per cent), management consultants and business analysts (12 per cent), according to the Jobs Economist consultancy.
The number of sales and retail assistants and chefs also increased in the past year.
In contrast, the number of electricians and electrical fitters is down by more than 9 per cent, plumbers and heating and ventilating engineers down by 12 per cent, nursing auxiliaries by 10 per cent, police officers below sergeant level down 6.9 per cent and teaching assistants by 7 per cent. The research also showed that back-office jobs increased by more than 100,000.

Dr John Philpott, director of the Jobs Economist, said: "Britain's remarkable and surprising recent jobs boom is a mix of good news for some groups of workers but bad news for others. While the net job gain is most welcome, at a time of economic austerity and mounting social distress, it's obviously worrying that we are shedding so many front-line public sector jobs in areas like health, teaching, policing and youth and community support work.
"In a period of falling labour productivity it's also very puzzling to see so many back-office jobs being created.
"HR managers and IT professionals may be important to our increasingly knowledge based and personalised service based economy but it's nonetheless surprising to see a surge in back office jobs at this stage in the economic cycle."
