What are common jobs in the United Kingdom?
I'm researching the UK for a report, and I need to find out what are popular jobs in the UK. Is agriculture big? How do people in the UK support themselves?

agriculture is not big, only 2% of the work force. 80% of people work in the service industry. The largest money maker in the UK is Banking and trading.

I have doen a bit of research on this and came up with some data from 2008 - 2010. It seems that although there is alot of agriculture in the Uk and it supports a lot of jobs it is more administration, IT & marketing roles which top the most popular jobs in the UK.
