UK economy could generate 3 million extra jobs by 2025, led by services
- Employment in the UK could grow by around 3 million by 2025, with the total number of jobs reaching almost 37 million.
- Education and health could add over 1 million jobs by 2025 and become the biggest of the services sectors.
- Business services could create around 1.5 million more jobs by 2025 and will become the second biggest services sector, with distribution, hotels and restaurants in third place.
- The number of jobs in manufacturing could fall by a further 600,000 to around 2 million by 2025 as new automated technologies continue to boost productivity and overseas competition remains fierce. But this should be far outweighed by the growth in private sector services jobs.
