Denmark – Vacancies at the highest level since 2008

13 December 2013

The number of vacancies posted online are at the highest level since 2008 according to Jobinex.dk. According to the company after some weak months over the summer, there has been “fair growth” in the number of new jobs advertised online in the autumn, and continued to grow from October to November. In November, 17,700 new jobs were posted online, an increase of 900 job ads compared with October. Measured since August, the number of new jobs advertised on the internet rose by 2,400 ads. Year on year figures are not available.

The strongest growth in the last month was in the public sector (Offentlig sektor). But the demand for both private salaried (Private funktionærer) and non-salaried (Private ikke-funktionærer) employees is also increasing. Indeed demand for non-salaried employees is predicted to increase in the coming months, due to the need to clean up after Hurricanes Bodil and Allan.

Although the figures are well below an average 30,000 new jobs posted on the web each and every month before the financial crisis. They are above the average 13,000 jobs posted in 2009.

According to jobindex.dk the labour market remains fragile, but today's figures along with good Q3 employment number give a reason to hope that employment growth will continue over the coming quarters.
