Luxembourg employment figures for July 2017
The number of resident job seekers totaled 16,296 at the end of July, a 2% reduction year-on-year, with unemployment stable at 6.1%.
The latest figures released by Adem, Luxembourg’s job agency, also show that the number of registrations to the agency has increased by 135 people compared to July 2016. This is due in part to registrations by seasonal workers, such as those in construction.
Vacancies listed by companies increased by nearly 16% compared to the same time last year; according to the report, this is mainly due to the rise of support roles, such as secretarial, accounting or consulting roles.
The number of individuals assigned to a post decreased slightly from July 2016 to July 2017 (5,171 to 5,098, respectively)--the fifteenth consecutive month in which this figure is declining.
