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 will be slightly below the average level in the 2009-2013 period, which appears to be in contrast with the current situation where there is a severe shortage of a number of healthcare-related occupations at the labour market. This forecast may be explained by growing qualification requirements in healthcare. 91 % occupations in this group are performed by people with secondary qualifications with 'maturita', and some 12 thousand more graduates with these qualifications are expected to enter the labour market by 2013. The fact is that 'maturita' is no longer sufficient as a qualification for various occupations, for example nurses who account for three fifths of occupations in this group. Therefore the chances of finding employment for people with secondary education will further worsen in the following years. On the contrary, employment prospects will continue to be good for people with tertiary qualifications as demand for them will continue to grow.

As some workers will leave their jobs (e.g. retirement), another 13 % of new jobs will be available within this group. Overall, 18 % of current employment will have to be filled by 2013, i.e. 25100 new workers will have to be hired.
