The coronavirus and Covid-19 pandemic have impacted us all in different ways. One of the main ways in which it’s impacted many of our lives for the worst is our careers, incomes and financial stability.
Even the most financially organised and secure of us may have encountered issues over the past year as a direct result of the pandemic. Strict guidelines and social distancing measures that have been implemented to prevent and slow the spread of the virus have had an impact on companies, industries and specialisms of all shapes, sizes and types.
Countless companies have collapsed. Countless people have lost their jobs. Countless people have been made redundant. Countless people have simply had time to realise that the role they previously occupied just wasn’t for them and that they’d like a change of career. It’s not all too surprising that changes in career are abundant right now.
So, if you’re looking for something new, what kind of role could provide a stable and secure income right now? Here are a few that could potentially suit you down to a tee!
Medical roles are extremely secure at all times. Unfortunately, there’s always a need for medical care, so any position with the healthcare field should always prove pretty stable.
Plus, these roles are extremely rewarding. You can head home each evening knowing you’ve improved someone else’s life for the better! Now, this isn’t a field that you can necessarily walk straight into. Most medical roles require a long education and plenty of training, but what better time to get started than now?
The type, of course, you’ll need to take will depend on the role or area of specialism you’d like to enter. This could vary from a nursing degree, which can last between three and four years of full-time study, to a medical degree, which will usually take six to seven years of full-time study.
Driving roles are in high demand too. People want to use taxis more, as it exposes them to less people than public transport. People are ordering food and groceries to their homes rather than exposing themselves to more people in the supermarkets and stores.
People are ordering almost anything they can online with home delivery rather than heading out. So, driving roles are in high demand right now. If you can drive, this is something that you could get into relatively easily. Just make sure you follow all necessary rules and regulations and remember that TNC coverage is limited.
Grocery Store Roles
People are always going to need food, so grocery store roles are pretty secure at all times. There are countless roles within supermarkets and grocery stores, so consider which could suit you. There are delivery drivers, there are shelf stackers, there are checkout staff, there are managers, there are stockists… the list goes on and on.
These, of course, are just a few different roles that are in high demand right now. So why not give a few considerations? If not, there’s bound to be something else out there that will suit you too!
