More UK job adverts require candidates to have the Covid-19 vaccine

Recent figures show the number of UK job adverts requiring jobseekers to have received the covid-19 vaccine has increased by 189% over the past 3 months. However, proportionally the number of job adverts with this requirement remains low, as only 19% of job adverts in October 2021 required candidates to have had the vaccine.

Job adverts in the health and social care sector were included in the research. Job adverts from sectors that will not make the vaccine mandatory were also included in the research, such as the charity sector (being 0.55% of job adverts) and the domestic help and cleaning sector (being 0.26% of job adverts).
