The future situation of the occupational group on the labour market

The employment prospects for this occupational group in the 2009-2013 period will be as follows:

Poor

Very good

The chances of finding employment for this occupational group in the 2009-2013 period are very good, and the situation tends to be stable over the long term. The main factor that keeps demand for these people at a high level is the rapid creation of new jobs that require this qualification in healthcare and social services. This trend will be preserved until 2013. Due to a higher average age in this occupational group a substantial portion of the current employees will retire in the period under review, which will intensify demand for graduates. However, many applicants are put off by low pay levels, and this is one of the reasons why competition for these jobs is very weak.
