01 June 2012

The Monster Employment Index Europe demonstrates year-over-year online jobs growth of 6% in May, matching the rate of annual growth recorded in April.

Germany retains an annual growth of 19% for the second consecutive month, Netherlands continues to chart the greatest decline in online hiring activity compared to year-ago levels (down 21 %).The UK was up 3% and France down-10%.

The environment, architecture, urbanism sector was the fastest growing with opportunities increasing by 23%. While the public sector, defence & community sector continues to exhibit the steepest annual decline (down 6%).

Alan Townsend, Vice President of Sales Readiness and Business Operations for Monster Europe commented: “The May Index recorded an overall steady rate of annual growth primarily due to more opportunities for workers in architecture and production.  However, markets like Netherlands and France continue to weigh down the Index and reduced overall consumer and business confidence indicate we are clearly not yet out of the woods.”
