Similar to the rest of Europe, Lithuania is also discussing new measures in response to the second wave of the Coronavirus pandemic. 😷Any plans to travel to Lithuania soon? Before packing, we recommend you have a look at the latest travel updates here. 🧳
Just like to Estonia and Finland, Lithuania also saw an increase in the number of job applications in September. 📈
We will see if this was just a short-lived trend among job seekers at the beginning of the last quarter of the year or if numbers are still on the rise. 📝
Let’s dive into the pool of stats and see what is happening in the Lithuanian job market. 🏊
Job Market Overview
Let’s recall September’s stats: while there was not much change in the number of job openings from mid-August to mid-September, the number of job applications was visibly on the rise. 💡
This month saw an increase in the number of job openings by 19%.
When we look at the job seekers, we can see that they spent most of their energy in September, as the number of applications have decreased this month.
Next in line is market competitiveness in the Lithuanian job market.
Let’s get this straight; if you are looking for a job opportunity in Lithuania, considering relocation or open to remote work, the chances are you are very close to your dreams at the moment.
Unlike Finland and Estonia, the ease of finding a job is at the “OK level” in Lithuania which corresponds to 3.1 out of 5. It is great to see the market flourishing here! 😊
In the following section, we will dive into the market competitiveness per specialty in the last 4 weeks in Lithuania. 👍
Here comes more good news for job seekers. October saw an increase of 4.1% when it comes to the gross offered salaries. Can we say that companies are ready to offer more to find the best talent? Sure we can! 🤸
As for the expected salaries, there has been a slight increase as well. As of mid-October job seekers and companies seem to be on the same page . 🤝
Offered Gross Salaries per Specialty
In the previous section, we shared data from our Insights page and discussed the recent changes.
Now, we will talk in more depth about how the offered gross salaries have changed per specialty since March. 💰
Looking at the chart, 4 major points catch the eye:
👉 All specialties saw an increase in offered gross salaries in October compared to those in February. 💰
👉 Customer Support saw the lowest increase.
👉 February and March saw the increasing trend in offered salaries in all specialties except for (Tech) Project Management.
👉 The second increasing trend can be seen from July to September in general. 📈
Top 6 Specialties with the Most Applications
Do you remember the top 6 specialties with the most openings in Lithuania from our previous market report? Want to refresh your memory? 🧠
- Software Engineering
- Marketing & PR & Media
- Sales & Business Development
To compare this list with the most popular specialties of the month, have a look at the chart below:
✅ The top 3 specialties have been Software Engineering, Sales & Business Development, and Marketing & PR & Media. 🏆
✅ Unlike in Estonia and Finland, the winner is not in first place by much. The above mentioned industries have very close numbers. 🏃♀️🏃
✅ It seems the least number of applications are in the Design industry. This explains why it is much easier for job seekers (at a promising “OK level”) to find their dream role in this sector. 👀
