Demand for managers will grow in Europe


12/26/2017


Over the next five years, the European labor market will increase the demand for highly qualified specialists, especially in the field of management. This conclusion is contained in the work of the Higher School of Economics "Professional structure of labor in Europe". It takes into account the growth in demand for workers both because of the creation of new jobs, and because of the release of existing ones.

Now, most of the workers in the European labor market are white collars. The majority are specialists of secondary (17%) and higher qualification (15%). About 9% of the total number of employees are large officials and top and middle managers. 35% in the structure of European employment belong to blue collars, and 4% of employees are engaged in agriculture and forestry.

According to the authors of the paper, by 2020, the highest demand in the European labor market (+ 50% to the current level) will be enjoyed by executive directors, corporate managers and other professionals with higher and secondary education, sales and service workers, forestry. The average age in these occupations is approaching pre-retirement, which, together with the growing demand for workers with advanced cognitive skills, will ensure their relevance. The growth in the demand for workers will be much less: for example, about 10% for those employed in metallurgy and machine building. This can be explained by automation of many mechanical tasks. However, the authors note, the preservation of such jobs is necessary, since it allows workers with low, often only initial, education to remain on the labor market and not depend on the social assistance system.
