Jobs in demand

Thinking about a career change as the cost-of-living crisis continues to unfold? A career in customer service might be an easy swap, according to recruiters.

HR and recruitment company Randstad Canada released a list this week of what it believes will be the 15 most in-demand jobs in Canada this year, according to its data.

The list ranges from sales positions to trades such as welding.

It was compiled by examining online job postings across Canada and cross-referencing this data with internal statistics based on what Randstad’s clients are looking for the most in employee roles, according to a spokesperson. There were far more job postings for the 15 careers on the list than others, the spokesperson added, without providing specific statistics.

This is the list of the most in-demand jobs for 2024, according to Randstad Canada:

  1. Administrative assistant—average salary between $37,000-99,000
