Germany and Eastern Europe Drive Sustained Recruitment Growth

September 13, 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, has recorded 21 percent annual growth in August, maintaining last month's trend. All industries continue to exhibit positive annual growth except public sector, defense and community. Craft and related workers continued its lead with the strongest growth of all occupations for the fifth consecutive month. “Strong double-digit growth trends in Germany, France and Sweden have driven the notable 21 percent increase in year-over-year growth for Europe,” said 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.”
