According to the Opendatabot platform, the number of vacancies in the Ukrainian labor market has increased by 16% over the past month. Most of all, new employees are needed in the Kyiv, Lviv, Dnepropetrovsk, Odesa, and Ivano-Frankivsk regions. At the same time, the largest increase in vacancies during the month occurred in the Kharkiv region, which had just been liberated from occupation.

Currently, 53 997 vacancies are open on the job search website Work.ua. In September, job seekers added 494 969 resumes to the site, a 21% increase over the same period last year.

In September, employers were most in need of sales managers, accountants, sales assistants, drivers, and cooks.

The greatest competition among applicants is observed in the Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odesa, Sumy, and Dnepropetrovsk regions. The residents of the Transcarpathian, Chernivtsi, Cherkasy, ​​Mykolaiv, and Ivano-Frankivsk regions need work least of all.

There is almost no competition among the responses to the vacancies of specialized doctors: cardiologists, ophthalmic surgeons, and endocrinologists. The same goes for auto electricians. At the same time, the greatest excitement arises among applicants for the positions of web designers, retouchers, layout designers, video editors, and administrators of offices and beauty salons.

Employers were ready to pay the highest salary in September to media buyers – UAH 60 000, international drivers – UAH 40 000, heads of sales departments, marketing directors, and visa managers – UAH 35 000.

Job search abroad has almost the same dynamics as in previous months. At the beginning of October, 31 271 vacancies were posted on the Jooble profile service – almost the same number as in June, July, August, and September.
