This response lists careers which need similar amounts of preparation, as indicated by the Job Zone. By default, the list is sorted by career title. You can change this by passing a sort parameter in the query string:

  • name - sort by career title (default)
  • bright_outlook - return Bright Outlook careers first
  • green - return Green careers first
  • apprenticeship - return careers with Registered Apprenticeships first

By default, up to 20 matching careers are returned. For information on navigating paged results, see the description of the See all careers service.
