A job for everyone

16.01.2015 | By Svitlana Popel

After a short-term hype among job seekers the competition on the domestic labor market is gradually subsiding, according to the International HR portal HeadHunter ( Meanwhile the list of those job seekers, for whom it is hardest to find a job, has remained unchanged for several months. Specifically, these are lawyers, financiers, top managers, HR managers and young specialists. Unfortunately, sharp decrease of the employers for the ordinary office workers and white collars, having spread panic in their ranks still hasnt become a stimulus for the majority of these workers to learn something new, obtain another profession. At the same time the chances for employment are high in the five professional spheres with the lowest level of competition

Recruiters believe that it is easiest to find a job for working personnel, builders, IT specialists, insurers and consultants.

For example, the current driving force of the domestic economy agriculture still has to go through the staff transformation. This is not normal, when of the three million people employed in the agrarian sector 85% are employed unofficially, believes Business Development Director at consulting company New Goal International Alla Adamenko. The most popular vacancies include agriculturist, veterinary doctor, sales manager for products of agroindustrial complex and agricultural equipment and top manager.

Head of recruiting agency Forsage Olena Hryshchuk predicts positive shifts in the near future for civil construction and construction of infrastructure, which will ensure jobs for welders, bricklayers, steel fixers, construction site supervisors, engineers and architects. She says that among the working class there are not enough logistics managers, technologists in the food industry and clothing and footwear industry, power engineers, plumbers, mechanics, painters and tile setters.

Medical workers will be able to compete next year with employees of the pharmaceutical sector (pharmacists, medical representatives), who enjoy stable demand in the crisis periods. Demand for doctors, nurses and hospital attendants will be high over the next several years due to a large number of wounded servicemen.

Along with that the demand for psychologists, psychotherapists and social workers will increase as they will have to work on moral recovery of the society. Some will have to do so virtually, since the demand for a position of psychology in a social network is growing by day. Also, over the next five years the services of online teachers and tutors will be popular on the domestic labor market.

Among the top level consultants, anticrisis managers will be in demand as they understand how to keep a company afloat, prevent possible losses and reduce financial risks if the situation does not beyond control.

Hryshchuk also believes that the change of political elites opens possibilities for the managers of commercial sector to realize their knowledge and apply their experience in public administration. A career of a civil servant can be given a new sense and value in conditions of development of a new government apparatus, she adds.

Officials from the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade confirm the main employment trends. According to the mediumterm forecast of the volumes of demand for labor force, the most demanded professions on the labor market in 20152018 in terms of types of economic activities will be simple professions in agriculture, trade and services sphere. In addition to that, according to expectations of MEDT further development of the economy is impossible without engineers, professionals in the sphere of physical, mathematical and technical sciences.

Different professions in the agrarian sector (agriculturists, veterinary doctors, livestock experts), trade (vendors, consultants, cashiers, stock managers) and services sector will enjoy highest demand. Also workers in the transport and construction industries will be demanded as well as in the sphere of production of minerals. Demand will be preserved for drivers and workers for maintenance of mobile equipment, workers providing personal and protection services. Adjustment of domestic companies to EU standards will cause additional need for workers in the metallurgy and machine engineering, specifies Director of the Economy of Social and Humanitarian Spheres Department at MEDT Oleksandra Savenko.
