Labor market in Moscow: no cause for concern

For many years, the capital’s labor market has been in high demand not only among Muscovites and residents of the region, but also among Russians from other regions, as well as citizens from the CIS countries. The reason for this is the relatively high level of remuneration for any quality work performed. Recently, the topic of a possible crisis in the market has been heard more and more often. The reality, in spite of fears, has the opposite tendency, and the dynamics of the Moscow labor market, which took shape by September 2014, can only please. Growth in demand for specialists in August-September 2014

The most demanded vacancies in Moscow today are: teachers; nannies; housekeepers; sellers and cashiers; inventories; advertising specialists; workers.

This year, as always, the last month of summer is characterized by a significant increase in demand for pedagogical specialists, which is due to the approaching start of the school year. However, the 40% growth indicates an increase in the market volume due to the creation of new jobs, and not just the beginning of the working season. Growth in demand in the service sector

A similar growth is observed in the service sector. The demand for service personnel, including nannies, housekeepers, governesses, and housekeepers, increased particularly significantly. Here, the dynamics are also largely due to seasonality. The summer vacation period is over, families of Muscovites are returning from their summer vacations. Trade is another popular destination. The market has grown by almost a third. Both simple salespeople and experienced marketers are required. The most popular job among job seekers is the work of a cashier, but the competition here is small, since the number of offers is almost as large as the number of jobseekers’ questionnaires. The overall growth of the labor market over the past month amounted to 33%, which is almost 10% more than in the same period in 2013. Most Popular Trade Jobs

In this area, Moscow employers are most often looking for cashiers for supermarkets. Slightly less common is the job of an inventory specialist, which also involves working in supermarkets, less often in stores of building or other materials, as well as in chains that sell household goods. Also in demand are specialists with higher education and experience in the field of marketing and advertising. Thus, there is no reason to speak of a recurrence of the 2008 crisis..
