Lithuania is an exciting market to look at, as it has proven itself as a hotbed of fintech and is hungry for international talent.

Our data from the recent weeks shows that the Lithuanian job market has remained strong despite the global turmoil. If that’s not a sign of a solid ecosystem, then we don’t know what is. 

This is the first weekly report on the Lithuanian job market, where we dissect employment trends. We also publish similar reports on Estonia and Finland, if that strikes your fancy. 

Just a quick reminder to all employers: we are welcoming new employers to the MeetFrank family and we’re even offering a free trial throughout the crisis. You can join us here

⭐️So, what’s going on in the Lithuanian job market? Let’s dig in.

Job market overview

Recently, the Lithuanian job market has been outperforming all the other markets, and even its own pre-crisis numbers. This week, there are 44% more active job openings than there were a month ago. 🔥

It’s certainly a good time to be a job-seeker in Lithuania. While the number of job openings has seen fast growth, the number of job-seekers has only grown by 5% as compared to a month ago. As a result, it is quite easy to find a job in Lithuania.

However, not all specialties are created equal. For example, finding a job is very easy if you’re a software developer, but remains challenging for people in Marketing & PR. 

Lithuanian talent

💸The only strong downward trend can be seen in salary numbers. The average expected gross salary is down from €2,597 in February to just €2,033 in April. 

Lithuanian salaries

Of the top hiring tracks, the decrease in average expected salaries has been the biggest among the Marketing & PR job-seekers. We’d encourage the Lithuanian Marketing & PR aficionados to keep their heads high though, as the offered salaries have not seen such a strong decrease. 🧐

The percentage of active job seekers among software developers is a little lower than that of the entire job market. However, we have seen gradually increasing numbers of applications in recent weeks, so the job market is certainly not dormant. 🙇‍♂️

Lithuanian Software Engineering talent

Due to relatively lower numbers of job-seekers and increasing numbers of active job openings, finding a job in software engineering is now very easy.
