Lee Biggins, founder and CEO of CV-Library commented: “As employees become more in demand and skills shortages remain rife, it’s clear that organisations in these industries are pushing up pay in a bid to entice people out of their current roles.

“In particular, the IT, construction and engineering sectors are heavily reliant on skilled individuals to help drive businesses forward and without the relevant talent, businesses will start to feel the effects. So, if you’re looking for your next job right now, these might be industries to consider!”
