European Vacancy Monitor

Issue n. 3/July 2011

According to the July edition of the European Vacancy Monitor, labour demand increased in the private sector in most EU countries. Employment in the public sector shrank, mainly in the areas of education, health and social work. Recovery in the private sector favoured mainly industrial workers, technicians, plant and machine operators, craft and related trade workers. Job vacancies in manufacturing rose by around 50 % in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to the same quarter in 2009.
