Germany and Eastern Europe Drive Sustained Recruitment Growth, Reports Monster Employment Index Europe

(September 6, 2011)   August 2011 Index Highlights:
  • The Monster Employment Index Europe exhibits 21 percent annual growth in August, maintaining last month's trend

  • Industrial production continues to lead in the Index in August

  • All industries continue to exhibit positive annual growth except public sector, defence, community

  • Craft and related workers continued its lead with the strongest growth of all occupations for the fifth consecutive month

The Monster Employment Index Europe is a monthly gauge of online job demand based on a real-time review of millions of employer job opportunities culled from a large representative selection of career web sites and online job listings across Europe. The Index does not reflect the trend of any one advertiser or source, but is an aggregate measure of the change in job listings across the industry.

"Strong double-digit growth trends in Germany, France and Sweden have driven the notable 21 percent increase in year-over-year growth for Europe," commented Alan Townsend, Vice President of Sales Readiness and Business Operations for Monster Europe. "Employers, particularly in the public sector and banking/ finance, continue to remain cautious but in general are still hiring for critical positions across all occupational groups."
