Job vacancies in Germany are increasing. According to a survey done by the IAB labour office research institute, Europe’s biggest economy reached above one million job vacancies in the commencing months of this year. They increased by approximately 84,000 in total. Alexander Kubis, the researcher of IAB said that the main industries with the highest job vacancies are construction, logistics and healthcare.
He also said, ‘The German economy seems to be unfazed by external risks such as a possible rise of protectionism and any consequences of Brexit. That’s why firms continue to hire, they are looking for new employees to an extent never seen before.’
