DE: number job vacancies in construction at all time high in Q2 2022
In the second quarter of 2022, the number of job vacancies in the German construction sector rose to a total of 205.000 positions that were open for hiring. This value represents the highest number of job vacancies in more than 8 years. While the number showed declines in 3 out of 8 quarters in 2020 and 2021, the first half of 2022 showed strong growth in the demand for labour. In the third quarter of 2022, a total of 162.000 open position was reported, showing an increase of +3,8 % compared to the previous year. Many craftsmen and construction companies surveyed by B+L still report high order backlogs and clients have to be patient waiting for their projects to be realised.
The statistics on job vacancies are based on research conducted by the Institut for Employment Research (IAB). For more information and raw data see IAB job vacancy survey
