Germany — Opinion on growth in temporary employment is divided

09 October 2009

According to a survey carried out by German daily Saarbruecker Zeitung and the Chamber of Commerce of the Saar region, only 8% of temporary employment agencies believe that the temporary employment sector in the federal state on the French border will improve over the next six months.

Temporary employment agencies' views were evenly spread with one third saying that things are looking good, mediocre and bad respectively.

Josef Gersing, MD of temporary employment agency A1 Zeitarbeit said that, "catering in the public sector is a stable market. The metal industry is still suffering from the recession. The [temporary employment] industry is operating at 'energy saving' levels."

Thorsten Zenner, MD of temporary employment agency IHD Saarbruecken has more positive views. "Call centres and assembly and installation work are growth areas. The medical sector is a new area for us. We see growth in the demand for nurses and qualified medical care personnel."
Petra Baumgart, Head of staffing agency Dekra Saarlouis said that the car industry has suffered a lot. "But we cover a broad spectrum of sectors such as professional trainers who specialise on professional development courses."
