Towards the end of 2009 Euro London was busy putting together its biannual ‘European Hiring Trends Report’ – a survey of employment markets across the areas we operate in (London, Windsor and Manchester in the UK and Paris, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Munich, Luxembourg and Zurich across mainland Europe.)

The results? Overall the message was positive – conditions are improving slowly but surely and the jobs market looks set to improve throughout 2010.

Here’s a summary of what we found in the UK:

  • French and German remain the most popular languages, although there has also been a strong demand for Dutch and Scandinavian languages
  • Most sectors improving slowly
  • Demand has grown for sales and marketing professionals, especially in the digital marketing arena and inbanking and finance
  • iGaming and betting remains buoyant
  • Continued lack of high quality candidates but bigger pool of talent has led to employers being less flexible
  • Increased confidence about the year ahead

Elsewhere, Germany has been experiencing stronger growth, especially in IT. Along with France it has also seen a boost in sales and marketing, and accountancy remains quite strong. Most countries also found that the decision making process was a long one when it came to hiring new staff, often leading to businesses losing out on the best candidates.
