Who Will Be In Demand Next Quarter Asks Antal Russia?

Sales and marketing managers look like being at the top of the & lsquo;in- demand’ list in the coming quarter. This data was obtained during a survey conducted by leading recruitment agency Antal Russia among 300 companies operating in Russia.

58% of the companies reported that they plan to hire professionals in the field of sales and marketing in the third quarter of this year. In second place are logistics and procurement managers - 26% of companies are to open vacancies for them. They are followed in turn by accountants, treasurers, tax specialists and IT professionals (22%), production and administrative staff (21% and 17% respectively), lawyers (12%) and HR staff (10%).

According to survey data the highest recruitment activity in the coming quarter will come from the following industries: FMCG Food, pharmaceuticals, construction, banking and manufacturing.

Estimated rates of recruitment activity in Russia significantly outweigh the global average: 67% of Russian respondents reported that they intended to open positions for middle and senior level managers, while the global index of recruitment activity was only 49%.

“Europe has always been one of the leading trade partners of Russia. The negative effect of this dependence is of course that the current economic downturn in Western Europe is having an impact on the Russian economy. The positive side of this mechanism is that the importance of the so called BRIC markets (including Russia) becomes even more crucial. Global CEOs have to answer their shareholders’ questions regarding where future growth will be coming from. The answer, that they are currently finding such growth in the & lsquo;emerging’ economies such as here in Russia. Therefore it is not surprising that more than 20% of our clients’ requests are for customer-facing sales personnel”, says Michael Germershausen, Managing Director at Antal Russia.
