European Online Recruitment Up 21 Percent

June 15, 2011 – The Monster Employment Index Europe, a monthly analysis of millions of online job opportunities culled from a large, representative selection of corporate career sites and job boards, reported a 21 percent year-over-year growth in May. Germany continues to lead all countries in annual growth for the sixth consecutive month. Industrial production sectors such production, manufacturing, maintenance, and repair; and transport, post and logistics continue to lead the Index. The public sector, defense and community sector all saw slight declines in May. “It is encouraging to see industrial production is still continuing to drive online recruitment,” said Alan Townsend, VP of sales readiness and business operations for Monster Europe. “The decline in public sector activity contrasts to the slight growth of previous months and will be interesting to monitor in terms of continuing calls for government cuts to services across this sector.”
