Jobs Roles That are in High Demand During Lockdown

At a time when the coronavirus outbreak has affected jobs globally, there are still job roles that are in high demand amid the lockdown.

According to reports, some industries need workers to cope up with the situation arising out of the COVID-19 pandemic.

E-commerce is one of the sectors that is looking for workers in lockdown. Companies are hiring technology professionals who can assist them in their digital transformation. In these uncertain times when there are curbs on people to people contact, the focus has shifted to keeping businesses running virtually. 

The backbone of e-commerce is logistics and delivery, which is another sector witnessing a spike in demand for workers in the UAE. In this sector, warehouse helpers and drivers are in high demand.

There is also a requirement of workers with experience in home services such as plumbing, electricity, house maintenance, pest control, sanitisation, and home cleaning.

So, which are the job roles that are in demand in lockdown?

Here are a few job roles in technology that you can look forward to applying in these uncertain times.

At a time when there are budgetary restraints, there’s a need for professionals in financial planning and analysis. In the finance sector, job roles that are in demand include:

  • Credit Controllers
  • Analyst, Financial Planning and Analysis

In logistics and e-commerce, there’s a need for riders, drivers, and forklift operators.

The insurance sector is also witnessing growth for certain job roles, which include:

  • Claim Administrators
  • Administrative Staff

There is also a demand for healthcare professionals. A pandemic of such magnitude is difficult to handle without the support of medical service providers. There is a possibility of a surge in demand further as corporates may require doctors, nurses, and consultants for ensuring safety for their staff.

The lockdown has also opened Home based job opportunities for many. This may help many stay-at-home moms to enter the working world without getting out of the comforts of their homes.
