Pet sitter most sought after job, research finds

Pet sitter is the most sought after job in the UK, according to research from job board Adzuna.

The company said its analysis of more than 5,200 different job titles found that pet sitter had the most amount of interest, with the average salary being £24,210.

Other popular job adverts, based on the number of times they were looked at, included animal handler and groomer.

In addition, Adzuna reveals that 24 of the 30 most sought-after jobs offered lower pay than the current average advertised UK salary of £36,339.

Paul Lewis, Chief Marketing Officer of Adzuna, said: “The most sought-after jobs in the UK are roles where workers are doing what they love or giving back to the community, rather than scoring high salaries.

“Animal jobs are proving particularly popular, with pet sitter roles the most clicked on job ads of the thousands of job roles on our site. Lockdown catalysed an increase in pet adoptions and it seems jobseekers are looking to get in on the act by taking on pet sitting jobs.”
