2019 Trends for HR Jobs in Estonia

2019 Trends for HR Jobs in Estonia

What makes the perfect HR job? A challenging work environment? Remote workspace? Juicy pay? It’s only natural that some of these factors are dear to you since they’ll often determine how well you feel HR jobs in Estonia rate. 

We were also interested in the stats behind these. So, we asked some questions of our own. What positions are companies looking to fill? How much are they willing to pay? What are the top companies currently hiring HR personnel? 

Drawing on data culled from our app, MeetFrank, we have created this article to provide all the answers you’ll need. Here’s all you want to know about 2019 trends for HR jobs in Estonia. 

 

Most in-demand skills for HR jobs in Estonia

 

Estonia is the startup capital of Europe. No, really. The country’s citizens are super talented (and quite entrepreneurial too) since they have more startups per capita than any other country in Europe.

Although this may be helped significantly by the fact that it is the 132nd smallest country in the world by land mass, you still have to appreciate that they gave us Skype. 

Considering the highly entrepreneurial landscape of Estonia, it can only be expected that their standards for HR jobs will be equally high. 

Out of 9 skills often required for HR jobs in Estonia, companies were most particular about recruitment skills. According to data from MeetFrank, 19% of employers preferred that HR candidates have good competencies in recruitment.

This makes sense, since a large chunk of what HR ordinarily does is recruitment. In fact, according to The Harris Poll, half of HR managers never stop hiring. They are on the lookout for new talent all year round. 

So, it makes sense that companies will be looking to maintain this energy too by ensuring that their HR team is never short of personnel. 

Other skills making up the top 5 were HR management and HR planning, with 13% and headhunting and sourcing with 12%. 

The mix of skills most in-demand is indicative of a current bias for higher level roles in recruitment. You want your HR team lead to have specific skills in management, planning, headhunting and sourcing. 

This is corroborated by our data on the team roles that companies are most looking to fill. 

 

Who are companies looking to hire? 

 

Employee roles in companies can be broadly categorized into six roles. There are entry, junior, mid-level, senior, lead and executive roles. Seniority also goes in that order with newbies to the industry coming in at entry level and really experienced hands, as executives.

According to our data on offers for HR jobs in Estonia made on our app, companies are looking to fill senior, lead and mid-level roles the most.

Senior recruiters are currently in highest demand, reinforcing the bias that companies seem to have for higher level roles. Lead recruiters are the second most recruited while demand for candidates in mid-level roles follows in third.

There’s quite a distance between demand for these three roles and demand for recruiters in entry, executive and junior roles. This, perhaps, emphasizes the need for candidates to ensure they expand their competencies if they’re to get a fair shot at HR jobs in Estonia.

 

Average salaries for HR jobs in Estonia 

 

We curated our data on average salaries across three main tracks: average overall salaries, average per seniority and average between January and July 2019. The results make for interesting reading.

Overall, the average minimum salary recorded for HR jobs in Estonia was €1,395 while the average maximum was €2,444. The highest salary recorded during the period was €4,000. These figures are not indicative of the overall salary landscape though.

While there was reduced demand for recruiters in lower level roles, individuals such as these often form the bulk of HR workforce. And considering that they don’t ordinarily earn as much as those in higher level roles, their salaries would reduce the general average.

This especially makes sense when you consider the data for average salaries per seniority. Recruiters in entry roles earned an average of €1,500, with those in mid-level roles earning more than €700 more. Seniors, lead and executives earned averages of €2,562, €2,650 and €2,750 respectively.

For the month of January, the average salary earned was €1,625. This picked up well in February and March, with the average in March being €3,000. Although there was a bit of a drop in May and June, the average came back up to €2,083 in July.

 

What skills do you need to earn over €2,500?

 

To earn more than €2,500 working in HR jobs in Estonia, you need a strong mix of skills including recruitment, HR management and headhunting skills.

This skill set would ordinarily be what you’d expect of a senior or lead recruiter since HR management and headhunting are generally high-level tasks. The data correlates with what we found on average salaries per seniority.

 

What HR jobs in Estonia are getting the most attraction? 

 

One of the great things about Estonia is the openness of its businesses to new ideas. With so many startups routinely kicking off in the country, it’s little wonder that there’s quite a preference for disruptive workspaces.

Most of our users in Estonia want to work for startups, in Fintech and companies that offer remote workspaces.

Thanks to the data we were able to get off MeetFrank, we found companies falling into this category, that are also looking for recruiters. Commodule, SEB, BigBank, Change, Scoro, Derivco, Xolo, 1oT and NoCry fit the bill.

Comodule is a global company with its headquarters in Tallinn. It also has business development offices in Berlin and Taipei. The company is a global leader in bicycle and scooter connectivity, providing solutions that link light vehicles together. If you’re interested in Comodule, check them out on MeetFrank. The interest might just be mutual.

A Guide to HR Jobs in Finland: Data You Need to Know

A Guide to HR Jobs in Finland: Data You Need to Know

A country where you can sit in a glass igloo and watch the aurora borealis almost all year round, Finland can often seem like a dream. It has beautiful scenery, and with a population of slightly over 5 million, is the most sparsely populated country in the world.

If you have always wanted to find work in Finland, you just may be coming in at the best time ever. Due to the country’s contracting labor market, more jobs will become available.

So, if you have had your eye on some HR jobs in Finland, you want to read through this article so you know what to expect.

 

What does the job market in Finland look like?

Finland has one of the best performing economies in the EU. Its highly industrialised economy had a GDP $244.9 billion in 2017, with a per capita GDP of $44,500. Its per capita figures were almost as high as those of Austria and the Netherlands, and slightly higher than Germany.

These figures underscore the high standard of living in the country and the quality of opportunities open to its inhabitants.

Although the economy grew at a steady rate prior to 2009, it contracted slightly between 2012 and 2014. This recession affected the government’s spending power and the country’s debt ratio. It recovered in 2016 though and is expected to maintain a 1.5% growth rate in 2019.

It’s a different story for the Finnish labor market however. Finland has been struggling with a rapidly ageing population for a while now. It is expected that in 15 years’ time, Finland’s population will look like Japan’s today.

The country’s working population is steadily ageing, and by 2070, those aged over 65 will be about 1/3 of the population. This will strain the country’s earning capacity and increase its expenditure at the same time. More money will have to be spent on social security plans for the newly aged members of the population.

The Finnish government is looking to make the country more attractive to immigrant talent in hopes of bridging the steady loss of its working population. Against this backdrop, we can better appreciate the 2019 statistics on HR jobs in Finland culled from MeetFrank’s app.

 

What positions are in demand for HR jobs in Finland?

 

The interesting thing about our data on HR jobs in Finland is their direct relevance to Finland’s current labor market troubles. HR personnel are generally tasked with helping companies maintain the positive image they need to attract talent.

They are often charged with recruiting, screening, interviewing and placing workers. They are also key to employee relations, payroll, benefits and training. You would expect that companies looking to ride out the troubles posed by the dwindling working population will want their HR on its “A-game”.

Perhaps this also explains our data on what talents are being sourced for HR jobs in Finland. Senior recruiters are currently in highest demand, as per MeetFrank data on jobs offers within the first 6 months of 2019.

Offers for mid-level and lead recruiters followed in close second while offers for junior recruiters were least.

The data does indicate that companies want to build out their HR teams from the middle up. Rather than adopt a top-heavy or bottom-heavy approach, the data shows that firms want more balanced teams with a good mix of talents.

 

Average monthly salaries for HR jobs in Finland

 

There has been a general upward trend for salaries in Finland recently. In the second quarter of 2016, average gross per month in Finland was €3,380. This was the 7th highest in the EU at the time.

That figure has however steadily risen through the period. Gross average hit an all-time high of €3,534 in the second quarter of 2019, from €3,499 in the first quarter.

On the MeetFrank app, the average minimum salary offered for HR jobs in Finland was €2,833 while the maximum was €4,133. The figures confirm the national average, falling within the same threshold.

The total maximum amount offered during the period was €4,700. You’ll probably agree that much will be required of anyone that takes home this paycheck. That makes sense too, when you consider our data on the top 5 in demand skills for HR jobs in Finland and the combination of skills required to earn a salary in that range.

 

Top 5 in demand skills for Finnish HR jobs

 

The job description of HR officers covers a wide range of tasks. Although the general workload may be broken down and distributed amongst several departments in big companies, that’s not always the case.

For startups that cannot afford to spread too many functions, HR personnel will need to come highly skilled and versatile.

According to our data, out of 9 skills, companies are most interested in hiring candidates that have strong recruitment competencies. At 18%, that’s where the focus of most companies is on and quite frankly, we can understand them. No one wants to be caught in the squeeze of the contracting labor market.

The other skills also reflect this, although there is a more even spread in the requirements. Companies are also interested in candidates that have employer branding and headhunting related skills. Along with team leading and other skills, each of these constitute 12% of the requirements in job offers on MeetFrank.

How skilled do you need to be to command a salary well north of €2,500? Very skilled, if our data is anything to go by.

To earn a salary over that amount, candidates need to be competent in recruitment, HR management and headhunting. That pretty much describes an HR team lead or at least, a senior officer.

 

Top companies hiring for HR jobs in Finland

 

The three top companies that have been most active in the HR recruitment landscape are Sector Alarm Oy, Teamit Group Oy and Transval Henkilöstöpalvelut Oy. Here’s a bit on each of these companies.

Sector Alarm Oy is the second largest operator in the European home security sector. It has over 2,000 employees in Europe and boasts a customer base of over 530,000 customers across Europe. The company has been around for 25 years and provides the prospect of stable, secure employment.

Teamit Group Oy is an IT company based in Helsinki. It is a software consulting and product house that specialises in developing IT solutions for a varied range of clients. The company markets itself as an equal opportunities employer with a turnover of over €2.3 million in 2018. Considering that it was only established in 2013, that’s a healthy growth rate.

Transval Henkilöstöpalvelut Oy is based in Vantaa, Finland. The company is an internal logistics giant, with services covering the five core areas of industrial, warehousing, terminal, consulting, human resources and retail services.

Marketing Jobs in Lithuania: What The 2019 Data Shows So Far

Marketing Jobs in Lithuania: What The 2019 Data Shows So Far

As far as the best countries to find employment go, you can hardly do better than Lithuania. Heck, with its 8.6% annual salary increase and 98% happiness rate amongst residents in its capital city, Vilnius, you’ll have a hard time finding better. 

With a 500% growth rate since gaining independence in 1990, the Lithuanian economy is in solid shape. Following its 3.5% economic growth in 2018, the country looks set to enjoy a very prosperous few years. In fact, the country is looking so good, it is considered one of the standout members of the Baltic states. 

Its super-fast broadband capabilities are rated as one of the finest in the world, clocking speeds over 15mb per second (over 40mbps according to this report). This has in turn spurred massive amounts of internet usage in the country, with an estimated 2.04 million users by 2022. In case you’re wondering, that’s almost 70% of its 2.76 million population. 

Considering the booming online activity, it’s not a surprise that there’s a lot of marketing activity in the country. And with plans in place for the country to become an innovation hub by 2020, there’s more than a bit going around in the way of marketing jobs in Lithuania. 

If you’re looking to snag yourself one of these jobs, you’ll want to know what to expect. Read on to see the 2019 data on what’s trending for marketing jobs in Lithuania. 

 

How big is the opportunity for marketing jobs in Lithuania?

 

Quite big really. Data on MeetFrank indicates that there has been a staggering 289% increase in Lithuanian marketing job offers in the app recently. The stats show a significant increase over the first 6 months of 2019 as against the period between July 2018 to December 2018. 

Marketing jobs in lithuaniaAlthough there’s no clear reason for the increase, it is an indication that more companies on MeetFrank are looking to attract marketing talent. As the platform grows, so do your chances of meeting your choice employer. 

Lithuania has already expended much effort into attracting heavy foreign investment into the country. This has been geared towards several sectors including IT services and software development. 

Multinationals such as Microsoft, Barclays and IBM, all heavy on customer-friendly marketing and spin-kings in their own right, are established in the country. It’s not surprising that this is firing up the employment vortices and churning up the waters for marketing jobs in Lithuania. 

 

Who are employers looking for? 

 

Demand for marketers in mid-level and senior roles is currently highest on MeetFrank. The data suggests that companies are looking more to experienced heads to help ground their teams and drive innovation. 

Offers for lead roles are a distinct third while there is significantly lower demand for entry and executive roles. This makes sense as companies are unlikely to hire a posse of executives to lead their marketing teams. They don’t seem to be willing to spare the time and resources it would take to train entry level hires either. 

This means if you’re looking to get the marketing job offer you want, it might be necessary for you to skill up. That could go a long way to finding your dream pay too, as our data on average salaries shows. 

How much are they willing to pay?

Executives attracted the highest salary on average, earning €3,310 a month. This correlates with their habitually higher responsibility and required qualifications. Interestingly, juniors attracted lower average salary than employees in entry roles, earning almost €200 lower. 

While this is a surprising quirk, it’s expected that it is no more than that. Companies are usually eager to reward upward movement in their structure with higher pay and better benefits. Data from the next few months should show a reversal to more common trends. 

So far as overall salary data goes, there’s not a lot of spread between opposite ends of the spectrum. Employers were willing to pay an average of at least €1,225 with a maximum offer of €2,040 on average. The maximum recorded salary was more than double the maximum average though, at €4,900. 

The figures for January to July 2019 also reflect the spread of the overall salary data. The average for January was €1,200 while April saw the highest average at €2,242. 

average salaries in marketing lithuaniaThere was a bit of a drop from an average of €1925 in May to €1,630 in June and €1,421 in July. One possible explanation for the drop is the usual reduction in recruitment activity during the summer holidays. 

Summer is usually a time for a bit of rest and relaxation. Apparently, recruiters and the talent they habitually hunt think so too. 

 

Where do people want to work? 

 

Most of the requests by our users indicate a healthy interest to work for startups and companies offering remote workspaces. Several others want to work for the coolest offices. 

marketing in lithuaniaThe data indicates that more Lithuanians are jumping on the bandwagon of workspace disruption, favouring companies that are trying out new stuff. That makes sense too, considering that Lithuania already boasts quite a number of businesses that offer options for remote work

With the promises of less pressure, better work-life balance and increased productivity that remote work offers, it’s not hard to see why so many are interested. top 10 companies

 

Top 5 in demand skills

 

If you’re going to take a punt on one of the available marketing jobs in Lithuania, you should know what skills recruiters are looking for. 

Marketing strategy leads the way for many recruiters, constituting an important factor in 11% of job offers. Social media management follows at a close 10%, reflecting the increased importance attached to social media interaction by companies. Content marketing, web analytics and branding follow at 9%, 8% and 7% respectively.

The fact that there’s not a lot of spread to the requirements for these skills is a pointed reference to the increasing preference of recruiters for very skilled employees. Individuals possessing two or more of these skills will likely find interesting job offers with very handsome pay. 

Our data on the mix of skills that attract high paying offers also confirms this. For offers paying more than €2,500, content marketing, marketing strategy and project management were important requirements.

2019 Stats on Marketing Jobs in Finland: What You Need to Know

2019 Stats on Marketing Jobs in Finland: What You Need to Know

Opportunities in marketing have grown in leaps and bounds in recent times, especially for marketing jobs in Finland, as seen on our app. Everywhere you look, there’s one more insane stat confirming that it’s crazy to not be involved in digital marketing right now. 

Roughly 40% of all marketing job openings now require digital marketing skills. That’s twice as many as there were 5 years ago and the figure is steadily increasing. 91% of B2B marketers now actively use content marketing and 86% of B2C marketers swear by the marketing strategy, believing it to be key for business. 

Seriously, this shows that if you haven’t really considered it before, now might be the time to bet on marketing. And if you live or work in Finland, you’re in just about one of the best environments to get a great head start. 

Finland is currently doing its level best to position the country as a “smart” tourist destination that provides the “ideal digital customer” experience. It’s moving pretty close to that goal too, if reports are anything to go by. 

In a country that’s doing everything possible to improve the digital experiences of its visitors and citizens, there’s bound to be plenty of business for digital marketers. Cue our data on the booming digital marketing industry in Finland and how things might play out for you. 

In this article, we’ll share insights that we have gleaned from people working in marketing jobs in Finland. We’ll also share what we’ve learned from employers using MeetFrank to solve their recruitment needs and all the interesting data you’ll want to know. Let’s get in!

 

How big is marketing in Finland right now? 

 

Offers for marketing jobs on the Meetfrank platform in Finland grew by a gigantic 661% compared to the period between July 2018 to December 2018.

The reason for the increase? Hard to pinpoint any individual factor. Although, considering the increasing social media presence of a good majority of the Finnish population, it’s understandable that companies are doing more to reach them. 

Statista reports that nearly 70% of people in Finland aged 18 to 64 were active on social media in 2017. It was estimated that daily social media usage grew by more than 20% in 2018 alone and the figures are expected to keep rising. 

This, perhaps, underscores the sizable growth that is being experienced in the Finnish marketing industry. Ad spending in 2019 is currently estimated at $590 million, an increase of 11.5% year on year. Considering that the figures were $464 million in 2017 and $529 million in 2018, it’s easier to understand why there’s such a clamor for skilled marketers. 

If you have the skills to enter into this job market, you’ll be interested in the next set of stats. Here’s how much you could be looking to earn. 

 

Average salaries for marketing jobs in Finland

 

According to our data, the average of minimum salaries during the first half of 2019 was €2,447. At the other end of the scale, employers shelled out an average of €4,003 for higher paid jobs. 

This takes nothing away from the maximum salary offered though. At €7,000 a month, the lucky individual taking home our maximum recorded salary will be making it rain all through this year.

The average salaries for marketing jobs in Finland are much closer to the general average though. Trading Economics reported that salaries in Finland held at around €3534 per month in the second quarter of 2019. This was up from the average of €2,857 recorded between 2000 to 2019. 

Our data correlates with the 2019 figures with the highest recorded average of €3,740 occurring in May. Although, there was a drop in the average recorded between June and July, from €3,070 to €2,688. 

Although there’s no clear explanation for the drop, one likely factor is the summer holidays. We’ve observed that recruiters are generally less active during this period and the same goes for the talent they’re out hunting.  

 

What roles are currently in demand? 

 

The two most in-demand roles for 2019 are mid-level and senior roles, taking up 55% of recorded offers between them. This makes sense too. As the marketing boom in Finland continues, companies are understandably looking to populate their teams with more experienced heads. For many companies, it’s a time to consolidate and find a platform for better growth. 

Entry and executive roles are in much lower demand, with just 5% and 7% of recorded offer respectively. Again, the data for executive positions is understandable since you companies are unlikely to be looking for more than a handful of captains to man their marketing ships.

The more significant data is for entry roles. The implication is if you want to get in on the scene for marketing jobs in Finland this year, you’ll have to skill up and gain some experience. It’ll pay you handsomely too. 

Just by stepping up your skills to junior level, you can look to earn up to €800 more than an entry level marketer, at €3,636 average salary. And the bigger your role, the higher your average salary as our data shows. 

 

Where do people want to work? 

 

Most of our Finnish users are looking to hitch a ride on the coat tails of beautiful disruption. There’s a strong preference for startups, fintech and the next big thing. You can hardly blame them. What’s there to love about a job that doesn’t get your heart pumping?

Top 5 in demand skills

 

What do you have to focus on to ensure that recruiters come calling? Well, the top 5 in-demand skills for marketing jobs in Finland indicate preference for an interesting mix of talents. 

Although web analytics edges out at a slim 11%, SEO, content marketing and marketing strategy are considered just as important at 10%. PPC skills bring up the rear at a close 9%.

The almost negligible spread between these talents indicates that companies may not really be looking for an “either/or” bargain here. Each of these skills seems to be considered as important as the others. 

This is confirmed by our data on the mix of skills that attract high paying offers. Job offers paying more than €3500 require content marketing, marketing strategy and PPC advertising skills. 

So, it might be in your best interest to add a minimum of one more competence to your area of strength. That way you’d be at least twice as likely to get your dream offer. Good deal eh?
