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. This will be influenced by several factors. There are two opposite trends within this occupational group. On the one hand there will be a significant decline in employment in the largest industries in terms of the number of jobs (construction, manufacture of basic metal, mechanical engineering, the automotive industry and partly also transport). This, on the other hand, will be offset by a decline in the number of graduates of the relevant study programmes (secondary programmes focusing on mechanical engineering, construction, electrical engineering and science). People with these qualifications should still find employment relatively easily.

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

  • Total employment
  • Development of employment in this occupational group

As a result of economic development 4 % of new jobs will be created for this occupational group by 2013. The number of jobs in the economy as a whole will increase by 0,2 %. As some workers will leave their jobs (e.g. retirement), another 13 % of new jobs will be available within this group. Overall, 17 % of current employment will have to be filled by 2013, i.e. 41300 new workers will have to be hired.

The current situation of the occupational group at the labour market:

The occupational group consists of the following subgroups:

  • ISCO 311 - Physical and engineering science technicians
  • ISCO 316 - Rail operations technicians
  • ISCO 314 - Ship and aircraft controllers and technicians

Physical and engineering science technicians (ISCO 311)

Development of employment in this occupational subgroup (in thousands)

  • Total employment
  • Development of employment in this occupational subgroup

Occupations in this subgroup are most frequently found in the following industries:

In 2008 the median age of employees in this subgroup was 41 years, in the economy as a whole it was 41 years.

The age structure of employees in this occupational subgroup:

Employees in this occupational subgroup most frequently have the following qualification:

  • Secondary (3a) - mechanical engineering (22 %)
  • Secondary (3a) - building and life science (17 %)
  • Secondary (3a) - electricity and electronics (15 %)

It is expected that by 2013 the following number of graduates with qualifications suitable for this occupational subgroup will enter the labour market:

Education Number of graduates entering labour market by 2013 Development of graduate numbers in 2009-2013
Secondary (3a) - mechanical engineering 14 320 slight decrease
Secondary (3a) - building and life science 8 300 rapid decrease
Secondary (3a) - electricity and electronics 19 900 slight decrease

The development of the number of graduates is ranked using a five-degree scale: rapid decrease - slight decrease - stagnation - slight increase - rapid increase.

Rail operations technicians (ISCO 316)

  • Development of employment in this occupational subgroup

Occupations in this subgroup are most frequently found in the following industries:

In 2008 the median age of employees in this subgroup was 45 years, in the economy as a whole it was 41 years.

The age structure of employees in this occupational subgroup:

Employees in this occupational subgroup most frequently have the following qualification:

  • Secondary (3a) - other (41 %)
  • Secondary (3a) - general programs (gymnázium) (13 %)
  • Secondary (3c) - vehicle maintenance, mechanical engineering, metallurgy (9 %)
  • Secondary (3a) - mechanical engineering (8 %)

It is expected that by 2013 the following number of graduates with qualifications suitable for this occupational subgroup will enter the labour market:

Education Number of graduates entering labour market by 2013 Development of graduate numbers in 2009-2013
Secondary (3a) - other 30 760 slight increase
Secondary (3a) - general programs (gymnázium) 27 155 stagnation
Secondary (3c) - vehicle maintenance, mechanical engineering, metallurgy 31 180 slight decrease
Secondary (3a) - mechanical engineering 14 320 slight decrease
