Employers are intensively looking for new employees. In September 2021 alone, 323,000 new job offers were published on recruitment portals, said Grant Thornton. This is 22 percent more than in the same period last year.
“For several months, the labor market has been steadily gaining strength. Since March 2021, the annual dynamics of new job offers published on the 50 largest recruitment portals has been only positive. In September 2021, employers published 323.4 thousand new job offers. This result is higher by 21.5 percent compared to September 2020, “Grant Thornton wrote in a report published on Friday.
The labor market has returned to the old trends
She recalled that in April 2020, i.e. shortly after the outbreak of the pandemic, the number of new job offers was over 50 percent. lower than in April 2019. In the period from June 2020 to January 2021, the number of job offers remained at the level of around 20%. lower than in the previous year.
“After almost all the significant restrictions related to the fight against the coronavirus were lifted in the Polish economy in the spring and summer of 2021, employers in Poland quickly forgot about the crisis and returned to the fight for the employee known to us from before the pandemic. Published in September 2021 323, 4,000 job offers is a result not only higher than last year, but also 9% higher than in 2019, when 297,000 job offers were published “- indicated in the publication by Grant Thornton.
It estimated that the labor market, after a deep slump in 2020, not only recovered from the pandemic, but also did so with a surplus, i.e. the demand for employees in Poland is now even higher than in 2019, i.e. in one of the best periods. in the history of the Polish labor market.
“It is worth noting that the September result this year is even higher than in July (by 16 thousand offers) and August (by 6 thousand offers). This also confirms the dynamics of the Polish labor market, because usually September brings a slowdown in job offers, because summer and holidays are ending, so the demand for seasonal work in tourism, gastronomy or agriculture is dying out, “the report said.
