    Because of Brexit, what jobs will be in greater demand and what jobs will have less demand? Apparently, banking jobs are starting to see a slight decrease.

    If the Tory govt still insists (as it has been doing since Cameron) it will be restricting applications from foreign students to British universities, then jobs in academia in this country will go into freefall. Already admin and support workers and some lecturers are on zero hours contracts, so a sharp decline in allowing foreign students into our universities will cost jobs and careers in the university sector,

    Low level hospitality is the sector that will really need filling post brexit, somuch so that the government has already promised the industry that it will provide 'Barista Visa's' to make up the shortfall...

    No one really knows because no body knows what the outcome of the Brexit negotiations will be.

    Jobs in demand.

    Border security guards
    Customs officers
    Education centres promoting UK patriotism

    Jobs no longer in demand or needed

    Teachers of English as a foreign language
    Activity leaders at places like EF and other language schools
    French German and Spanish teachers in state schools
    Staff in Polish shops, Italian restaurants, Spanish restaurants.
    Au pair jobs and jobs in the Au pair agencies.

    Actually, all the jobs you think will not be in demand will be because EU migrants will be replaced with non EU migrants from the Commonwealth and other parts of the world. Anyone can open an Italian or Spanish restaurant, they don't have to come from Italy or Spain.

    Jobs that won't suffer:

    Civil Engineering
    Mechanical Engineering
    Car Mechanics
    Doctors
    Nurses

    Engineering will never suffer, good rule of thumb.

    But would it be politically acceptable to open such a restaurant? Would anyone in Britain have opened a Russian restaurant in the Cold War? Or today would anyone open a North Korean restaurant in Britain?

    Similarly in China during the 1960s anything associated with the past such as the British empire or even China's brief friendship with the Soviet Union in the early 1950s was shut down as the regime wanted to cut off any cultural connections to imperialism. Even British cookery books, poetry, music etc were destroyed by the red guards.

    I thought engineering is suffering already (not due to brexit though).

    The only ones who legitimately never suffer are doctors, dentists, vets and nurses. You're guaranteed a job whenever you want and for as long as you want (providing you're competent).

    Likely there will be a demand for teachers of Non- EU languages in state schools such as Japanese, Russian, Arabic,

    Also a demand for British and non- EU Au Pairs.

    Lidl and Aldi staff could be out of a job as their supermarkets leave Britain.

    I'd add maths/physics teachers onto that list too. There's such a shortage of qualified teachers in these subjects that you can actually get paid to become one.

    A lot of French German and Spanish teachers could be retrained to teach Maths and Physics, as those languages will be obsolete after Brexit. More likely pupils will learn Japanese instead, but government will probably place more emphasis on Maths and Science post Brexit rather than languages.

    It's not, engineering salaries are only getting higher due to the shortage of skilled workers in the sector.
