76% of Britons Can’t Tell Difference Between Home Office Job Titles and Sci-Fi Occupations

Because of the UK skills gap, the Home Office website has a list of the UK’s most in-demand professions. It includes salary and qualification details, so anyone from overseas looking to move here to work can see what jobs we need to fill.

However, British adults are having a hard time taking the Home Office job titles seriously.

When presented with a list of job titles, half real jobs taken from the Home Office in-demand jobs list and half fictional jobs from sci-fi blockbusters – many of which are set decades and centuries into the future, including Mad Max, Hunger Games and David Lynch’s iconic Dune – only 24% correctly identified all of the real job titles.
