Nearly nine out of ten surveyed companies are planning recruitment in the second half of 2023, according to the latest Hays report “Labor Market 2023. Semi-Annual Trend Review”. The largest number of job offers will concern IT specialists.
The report was prepared on the basis of data obtained in a survey conducted between June and July 2023 among nearly 1,200 companies and 1,000 specialists. Agnieszka Pietrasik, executive director at Hays Poland, pointed out that “although there are definitely fewer job offers than 1-2 years ago, we are not dealing with a breakdown”.

“This is evidenced by the results of the survey – 87 percent of employers expect that they will conduct recruitment in the second half of 2023. However, the main reason is not business development, but the need to look for replacements for employees who decide to leave (42 percent). And those they do not show any major concerns about changing jobs, looking for attractive offers” – noted Pietrasik.
Alex Shteingardt, regional director for Central and Eastern Europe, managing director of Hays Poland, emphasized that “experienced specialists with valuable competences can still count on job offers that guarantee attractive remuneration, professional development and participation in interesting projects”. “In many industries – including IT, finance, engineering or logistics and the supply chain – we are dealing with the situation before the pandemic, when Poland was talking about the employee’s market” – pointed out Shteingardt.
The study shows that among the companies planning recruitment in the second half of 2023, the vast majority will employ permanent employees (93%), while slightly fewer B2B contractors (27%) and external and temporary employees (22%).
A fairly high percentage of employers (41%) predict that in the second half of 2023 the number of recruitments for permanent work will be higher than in the previous six months. “In the case of B2B contractors as well as external and temporary employees, such an answer was given by 34% and 31% of companies respectively” – we read in the report prepared by the personnel consulting company.
According to the study, the largest number of job offers will concern specialists in the field of IT, production, finance and accounting, sales and engineering.
The Central Statistical Office reported last week that unemployment rate registered in Poland amounted to 5.0 percent. The number of unemployed registered in employment offices in June amounted to 783.5 thousand.
