The future of work

I read a great article in the Financial Times, the day after this year’s budget. One of the aspects covered was how the world of work is changing. The article predicted the future of work in 2025 and gave a prediction of roles that will still exist, will have declined or will be increasingly popular. By the way I was interviewed for a finance magazine feature recently. If you haven’t already seen it, please click here to do so (I’m on the front cover and on page 23).

Here are the jobs:

This is a great conversation topic for today’s Sunday lunch with the children (assuming your children aren’t already over 50!)

What about you? Do you need to think about reskilling?
