Job market overview: May vs June
One of the key indicators of the job market is the number of active job openings.
We see that in June, this number is lower than in May. In fact, the number of active job openings is down by about 22% in the Lithuanian job market. 📉
At the same time, the number of active job seekers is up by around 4% as compared to a month ago.
Despite these changes, the job market competitiveness has remained more or less on the same level in the last few months. 🔭
Salaries in TOP 6 specialties
Next, let’s review the most recent data on salaries in the top specialties in Lithuania.
In general, we see that the average offered and expected salaries remained in the same ballpark in the past month. ⚖️
However, this was not the case in all specialties. The offered gross salaries in sales & business development have decreased by about 400EUR on average.
At the same time, gross salaries in finance and (tech) project management have gone up a bit. 📈
In the job market as a whole, salary expectations have slightly increased. When we take a closer look, we see that the average expected salary is up in all specialties except for software engineering and (tech) project management. 💰
Competition in TOP 6 specialties
Earlier, we saw that the number of active job offers has decreased, while the number of active job seekers is slightly up. Let’s see what impact this has had on job market competitiveness by top specialties. 🕵️♀️
1 point means that it’s really difficult to find a job while 5 points hint that there are many job offers available.
In general, we see that job seekers in IT & sysadmin, software engineering and finance enjoy a relatively low level of competition.
Recently, it has gotten even easier than before to find a job in IT & sysadmin and finance. At the same time, it’s become a little more difficult to find a job in software engineering in Lithuania. 👩💻
Marketing & PR & media, (tech) project management and sales & business development are fields with toughest competition for finding a job in Lithuania. In all of these specialties, the competitiveness has remained more or less on the same level in May, as compared to April.
