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 2009-2013 are slightly above average. As compared to the development in the 2003-2008 period these chances will remain about the same. The most severe shortage of workers is expected in the operation of power facilities where the average age is over 50 years. Many employees will retire and the supply of graduates to replace them will be insufficient in the following years. However, the largest subgroup within this occupational group consists of drivers of motor vehicles who are employed in ground transport and other industries. Their employment prospects for the near future have been severely worsened by the economic downturn and the reduction in industrial output - the volume of freight transport has considerably decreased in the CR. Operators of metalworking machine tools also face unfavourable prospects. The fact that the employment prospects for this group as a whole are above the average is the result of both the age structure (over one quarter of drivers are older than 50, and the same is true of as many as one third of metalworking machine tools operators) and the declining number of graduates of the relevant study programmes. It will be rather difficult to replace the leaving employees.
