Canada’s economy is recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, and restrictions, lockdowns and curfews are expected to be eventually lifted.
As the pandemic began creeping in, many businesses started to adapt and make changes. Many employees started working from home. Businesses began using online collaboration and video-calling platforms. Other businesses that require physical attendance implement health and safety policies consistent with the government’s advice, such as wearing face masks and maintaining physical distancing.
The following are some of the positions that are expected to be in high-demand throughout 2021, according to Randstand:
- Customer Service Representative
The need for customer service representatives dramatically increased as a result of the pandemic. They deal with customers who may be emotionally distressed. These customers expect to speak to a real person who can professionally handle their situation. Refunds and cancellations can only do so much.
- Registered nurse
There was already a shortage of registered nurses pre-coronavirus. The pandemic only amplified the need of nurses because of an increase in patients who require critical care. It is estimated that Canada will need 60,000 nurses by 2022 to help with the aging population.
- Electrical engineer
Electrical engineers are in high demand as various companies depend on complex communications system to remain operational throughout the pandemic. Demand is particularly high for electrical engineers with a diverse skillset that goes beyond the technical skills, such as communication skills and writing skills.
- Software developer
There are two reasons for why software developers are in need: employees continuing to work from home, and the increasing popularity of ecommerce. Individuals who can code, design and build applications and websites may be able to find employment in Canada.
In times of financial inconsistency, accountants are particularly sought-after. Accountants are able to advise businesses on issues such as accessing government funding and financial tax breaks. They also help businesses make important decisions regarding growth.
- HR manager
Crucial for businesses to stay afloat during the pandemic, HR managers develop relevant HR policies such as remote work policies and health and safety policies. They are also responsible for keeping up the morale of the employees during such a difficult time.
This one may come as no surprise. Drivers of all types are in high-demand due to the pandemic, especially truck drivers, many of whom are responsible for delivering medical supplies to hospitals and essential goods to stores across Canada.
- General labourer
There exists a need for general labourers across the country. If you are interested, there are more positions available than employers are able to fill.
- Financial advisor
With plenty of individuals feeling less financially secure as a direct result of the pandemic, it is understandable that financial advisors are on this list. They offer support and advice to said individuals who may be facing difficulty in mortgage or rent payments, as well as debt.
