The third in our “Big Data” Insights series looks at the French  market. We’re not country experts in this market, but we have helped many companies recruit in France – and data like this gives us access to key market knowledge that helps make more informed decisions. That’s the power of  “Big Data” – it’s great MI.

Today, as MI becomes a key part of the HR and Recruiting industry (and as more and more data becomes available as a by-product), key decisions can be made based on “hard facts”. However, one key issue remains is the ability of many in our industry to interpret that data.

 

In this blog we share some key industry data from a number of sources – and please feel free to interpret it as you see it. We’d love to hear your takes via our social media channels and of course through this blog;

 

French Postings By Sector Q1 2014

 French Job Postings By Sector  Q1 2015 + Yr on Yr Growth (Evolution)

(Total Market Job Offers – 2,494,086)

 

french posting by sector q1 plus growth

Our interpretations from the data are:

  • Construction has seen huge yr-on-yr growth – is France investing in construction infrastructure as a way out of recession (the French economy has slower GDP v UK)?
  • Logistics has the largest yr-on-yr growth and anyone travelling in France can vouch for the volume of lorries on the roads!
  • Production is Number Two and “Big” in France. It’s not in the top 5 in the UK, reflecting the much larger manufacturing base in France.

We found this data fascinating… Nurses in Paris becoming Estate Agents? Now I’m worried, do Parisians really want more Estate Agents??

I’d like to thank JobisJob and Tanya for access to Job Market Insights and providing this great data. And look out for our fourth blog which takes a deep dive into the UK Market.
