You can access the short survey below to find out!

Jobs have always changed

Since the beginning of time, the type of jobs we do and how we do them has changed with the world around us.

Imagine we used to harvest wheat with sickles. It took lots of people a very long time!

New technology creates new tools

But we have always used technology to create tools that help us do our jobs better and faster. These tools also free up time, so that we can spend less time working and more time living.

The invention of the combustion engine led to the creation of cars, heavy-duty vehicles and airplanes.

New tools change how we do our jobs

These new tools change the way we do our jobs on a day-to day basis. For some jobs these changes are minor but other times they are significant.

The engine makes harvesting easy compared with using a sickle. Farmers today drive a harvesting machine, which harvests more in less time. Less people are involved in harvesting, which allows them to focus on other tasks. Entirely new jobs are created such as making, selling or repairing harvesting machines.

What does this have to do with me?

Today, there is much discussion about the effect of robotics and artificial intelligence on our jobs. There is no doubt that these advanced technologies will change how we work, what we do and which jobs will be available to us. This means that our jobs will evolve, just as they always have. 

Some people will see their jobs change more than others, depending on the tasks they involve. Certain jobs might disappear completely. But new jobs, some of which we can’t even imagine yet, will be created. We might also be able to spend less time at work and more time doing other things.

Take the survey to find out the chance of your job changing because of automation. Understand what this means for you and explore your options for the future.
