With the children and family service particularly facing a shortage, this is one profession that has taken a battering in recent years, with case after case of social workers’ ineptitude dominating the news.
Perhaps it is this enhanced scrutiny and scathing which has put people off the profession.
Yet this should not detract from what is a hugely challenging and ultimately rewarding profession.
The ability to reunite a family, the power to change someone’s life for the better and the chance to put a smile on a child’s face are things that should not be taken for granted.
The worrying thing about a shortage of nurses is that there exists scary repercussions on patient care.

The UK is currently suffering from a shortage of qualified individuals to step into the world of 2D and 3D animation.

Just one of the many trades that are suffering a severe shortage, plumbing arguably suffers from a degree of snobbery, despite the attractive wages on offer.
Apprenticeships, the most common route to plumbing, are commonly not pushed enough in schools, although things are slowly changing as a result of the rising cost of going to university.
Today, engineering is just one of the many professions suffering from an acute skills shortage, despite the attractive wages on offer.
Engineering is unique in the sense that it’s extremely important to the UK economy.
Therefore a failure to plug the critical skills gap in the engineering sector could have dire consequences for the UK economy.
From bricklayers to electricians, the UK is simply crying out for those whose skills would be essential in building a house.
Yet involvement in the construction industry is suffering from something of an image problem amongst those tasked with educating our young children.
Let’s hope perceptions change fast – or the UK housing crisis could escalate before our very eyes.
The key role that data scientists play in analysing data is one increasingly being harnessed by business.
Despite the demand for data scientists, it appears that supply has failed to match demand so far.
