Where are the jobs?

Finweek English Edition - - INSIDE -

Op­por­tu­ni­ties for job­seek­ers are ex­pected to be strong­est in the man­u­fac­tur­ing, trans­port, stor­age and com­mu­ni­ca­tion, and the elec­tric­ity, gas and wa­ter sup­ply sec­tors. The weak­est sec­tors are ex­pected to be min­ing and quar­ry­ing, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est em­ploy­ment out­look sur­vey by Man­pow­erGroup. “While the coun­try is cur­rently fac­ing an en­ergy cri­sis that is im­pact­ing on all sec­tors and in­dus­tries, this also presents cer­tain op­por­tu­ni­ties for the growth of cer­tain sec­tors and there­fore, the cre­ation of jobs,” it said.

Of the 750 South African em­ploy­ers sur­veyed, 18% said that they plan to hire more staff in the April to June quar­ter. Hir­ing in­ten­tions are 3 per­cent­age points stronger quar­ter on quar­ter and 10 per­cent­age points higher year on year, mak­ing the out­look the strong­est since the fourth quar­ter of 2008. Glob­ally, em­ploy­ers in 40 out of 42 coun­tries sur­veyed planned to ex­pand their work­forces in the sec­ond quar­ter.
