France Job Market has 200,000 unfilled positions

France Job Market has 200,000 unfilled positions and most of these were owing to the lack of suitably skilled workers. It has thus huge demand for Overseas Skilled Workers. The unemployment rate in France decreased to 9%. This is a better rate of unemployment for France in the last 10 years. The statistics are as per the Jobseeker Service of Government of France Pôle Emploi.

Employers in France have reported that they are finding it tough to recruit 2/5ths of the vacancies. This is really a tough challenge, they have added. It is also a great trouble for specific sectors in France.

84% of the job vacancies for Machine Operators were unfilled owing to the skill shortages in the France Job Market. The figures for Carpenters were 80%, Butchers was 65%, and for Computer Engineers it was 63%, as quoted by the Economist.

Natixis Chief Economist Patrick Artus said that crucial challenges have been witnessed in France. This is notwithstanding the high unemployment in the nation added Chief Economist at the French Bank.

The numbers of jobs in France are increasing owing to the Euro Zone’s broader economic recovery. It has been anticipated that the growth of GDP in France will exceed 2% in 2018. President Emmanuel Macron has also implemented labor reforms. The risk to employers has been decreased by easing repetitive procedures. This has also encouraged recruitment in the nation.

Meanwhile, France is witnessing several positions remaining unfilled due to lack of skilled workers said, Patrick Artus.  This is exerting upward pressure on the salaries. Shortage of skills is the chief reason for the high rates of OECD nations’ structural unemployment, added Artus.
