Looking for a change of career? It turns out there's a massive shortage of football coaches, according to new research.
The figures, by job site Indeed, found almost half of football coach jobs are still empty after 60 days.
Veterinary nurses, volunteers and opticians are also all in hot demand, the figures showed - although that may have something to do with the salaries, which are all below £30,000.
If you're looking for something a little more lucrative, surgeon came seventh on the list, with an average salary of £39,528, while solicitor, at number 18, comes with a salary of £41,913. At number 19, dentists are also few and far between, and receive an average salary of £37,825.
"With job vacancies at a record high too, in some areas employers are engaged in a full scale battle for talent," said Richards. Bill Richards, UK managing director at Indeed, cited low unemployment as the cause of the shortages. Last month, figures from the Office for National Statistics showed employment rose to a record high of 75.3 per cent between September and November, the highest since records began.
“From the jobseekers’ point of view, these ‘hard to fill’ roles may be worth considering if you’re contemplating a career move. While some require highly specialised skills, others do not; and with potentially lower levels of competition and some tempting salaries on offer, landing one of these jobs could boost both your career and your bank balance.”
