Employers are willing to train professionals

As Maksym Pylypenko mentioned, there is currently a labor shortage in the Ukrainian job market. The number of vacancies has nearly reached the pre-full-scale invasion level, and the average number of responses to job postings per month is at the same level as in 2021 when the so-called job seeker's market was observed.

Finding qualified professionals has become a longer and more complex process, which is why employers are willing to hire individuals with less experience and invest resources in their training. Employers are also offering higher salaries to attract the best talent. Additionally, they are creating adaptation and employment programs for veterans.

  • 59% are training people with less experience;

  • 31% are offering higher than market wages;
  • 23% are hiring more young (under 24) and older (45+) workers;
  • 18% are implementing adaptation and employment programs for veterans;
  • 13% do not currently see a shortage of skilled personnel in their category.
