Talk of robots taking all our jobs is rife these days. But there are also more immediate threats to many roles. So this week we looked at positions predicted to remain important in the future: Independent.ie’s list of ‘The top nine jobs of the future’.
The list includes healthcare professionals, data scientists, and marketing, communications and design. The future, luckily, retains a variety of roles. We were not surprised to see that freelancers, an emerging trend, were ranked #7.

Speaking exclusively to Independent.ie, Indeed EMEA economist Mariano Mamertino said that “UK is in a good place for cyber roles, and is becoming more attractive for skilled workers, in particular, cross EU borders it is an attractive destination, and becoming even more attractive as a consequence of Brexit.”
