Italy — Qualified staff in demand again as economy picks up slowly

24 May 2010

New research carried out by staffing group Randstad Italy among 637 employers in industry, commerce, the services sector and the public sector reveals that there were first signs of a pick-up in the Italian labour market during the first four months of 2010.

The most sought after positions in the still fragile but improving labour market are sales personnel for the insurance and services sectors, metal mechanic engineers and health professional such as nurses as well as marketing managers for online businesses.

Fasola Scarlett, Head of Public Affairs at Randstad Italy, told Italian daily Corriere della Sera "we have noticed an increase in demand from large corporations who have in the recent past got rid of managers and who due to an improvement in the economy now have to start hiring again."

Equally new research carried out by staffing group Adecco Italy reveals that the most sought after graduates in the Italian labour market at the moment are engineers followed by economists, lawyers, political scientists, biologists and chemists.

Adecco sees huge potential in renewable energies and thinks that a degree in environmental sciences will very soon be a very good entry ticket to the labour market.
However, Adecco points out that it matters very much, which university these graduates come from. Bocconi University of Milan, Turin Polytechnic, Cattolica University and Luiss are regarded as the best addresses in Italy.
