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 the average. However, as compared to the 2003-2008 period they have severely deteriorated. Still, the employment prospects of these occupations may appear to be exaggerated. A cursory analysis of the labour market and specialist publications suggests that these relatively low skilled occupations are clearly in decline and the main problem will consist in a shortage of skilled constructers, IT specialists and financial analysts. However, we must bear in mind that most of the jobs at the Czech labour market are low skilled ones and although demand for them is decreasing, the number of jobs vacated due to retirements far exceeds the number of jobs abolished due to the crisis of the industry, growing efficiency and automation. Moreover, the interest on the part of young people in studying the relevant programmes will plummet and it will be increasingly difficult to replace the natural decline in the number of workers.

Development of the employment in the occupational group (in thousands):

  • Total employment

As a result of economic development the number of jobs within this occupational group will increase by 4 % by 2013. The number of jobs in the economy as a whole will increase by 0,2 %. A total of 15 % of workers in this occupational group will leave their jobs (e.g. retirement). Some of these jobs will cease to exist, some will have to be filled. Overall, 11 % of current employment will have to be filled, i.e. 14700 new workers will have to be hired.
