The number of vacancies in German industry rose sharply in the second quarter. Compared with the first quarter, the number of job vacancies in the manufacturing sector increased by 21%, the Employment Research Institute (IAB) said on the basis of its employment survey in Nuremberg on Thursday. Across all sectors, the number increased by three percent or a total of 38,000 jobs – industry alone accounted for 26,000. “Overall, there is a recovery effect on the German labor market. at all levels, “said Alexander Kubis, IAB Labor Market Researcher. There are also many vacancies in the service sector, for example in the hotel industry, in the cultural sector and in the health sector. “The Covid 19 pandemic has left a very clear mark on the job market,” Kubis said. In this regard, the sharp increase in job vacancies in sectors particularly affected by the crisis is also the result of the recovery. With its employment survey, a survey of companies, the IAB examines all job offers in the country four times a year. In the second quarter, 6,500 employers responded to the researchers’ questions.
