The Top 10 industries on LinkedIn in the UK in 2023 will surprise you

At the beginning of 2023 the number of people globally on LinkedIn sits at over 900,000,000, and we expect to see this figure increase as the year progresses as more and more people join LinkedIn every day as LinkedIn is THE business networking site to be on.

We like to keep an eye on how LinkedIn is evolving and we’re looking forward to sharing the top 10 industries on LinkedIn in the UK as we did previously with the global top 10.

If we had a £1 for every time someone said to us that LinkedIn was a job site, was full of recruiters or something along those lines we would be rich! But the reality is that hasn’t been the case for 10 years plus – just some people haven’t yet realised as all they see, or experience, is recruitment perhaps?

However, the reality is a little different as you can see below:

There’s been a huge shake up to the industry categories within LinkedIn in the last few months, and it now has 439 different categories! Well worth checking what industry you say you work in within your own profile as there may now be a better choice.

The largest UK industry is now professional services, which often surprises people, with manufacturing second and Technology, Information and Media third.

Many people have been surprised at just who is on LinkedIn when they take the time to look, and even more surprised when they hear about some of the results that our clients are getting!

LinkedIn is so much more than you appreciate and if you’re thinking about looking at it again just give us a shout here.
