Growth in European Online Recruitment at 1%, According to the Monster Employment Index

Growth in European Online Recruitment at 1%, According to the Monster Employment Index

New York, July 6, 2012

June 2012 Index Highlights:

The Monster Employment Index Europe demonstrates one percent growth year-over-year in June, a marked decline on last month’s six percent rise

Germanycontinues to lead all regions by measure of annual growth at 11 percent, albeit at a reduced pace from May (19 percent). Italy reports growth at two percent, returning to levels last seen in February, and the UK matches its rate of growth recorded a year ago

The Netherlands, France, Belgium and Sweden all report reduced demand in online recruitment activity year-over-year

Environment, architecture, urbanism (up 17 percent) demonstrates the strongest annual growth of all industries for the second consecutive month, while opportunities in Engineering remain steady at six percent

Arts, entertainment, sports, leisure and the Public sector both place bottom of the Index with matched rates of annual decline in online recruitment activity

The Monster Employment Index Europe is a monthly gauge of online job posting activity 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.

“The marked reduction in online recruitment recorded in June’s Index is unsurprising considering the current uncertainty of the wider economy,” commented Alan Townsend, Vice President of Sales Readiness and Business Operations for Monster Europe. “However, while recruitment demand is generally muted, over a third of industries continue to report annual growth, with a variety of opportunities across sectors including architectural, telecommunication and education.”

Monster Employment Index Europe results for the past 18 months are as follows:
