Internet-based job offers rise in Poland in March after three months of decline

By bne IntelliNews April 11, 2014

The Job Offers Barometer (BOP) increased by 1.2pts m/m to 129.5pts in March, according to a report by the Office for Investments and Economic Cycles (BIEC), which calculates this indicator. This was the first monthly growth of BOP after three months of decreases.
The number of job offers published on the internet rose in monthly terms to 106.8 thousand at the end of March (though it was still down by 16% on the year).
BIEC stresses that as the spring begins the rise of job offers was seen not only in respect of temporary offers, but also in terms of full-time jobs.
Currently, the positive changes on the job offers market have begun to translate into an improvement on the labour market, while last year's growth of offers failed to impact the labour market, the analysts stressed.
A key factor is the current economic upswing in Poland, which leads to a larger number of orders; they, in turn, increase chances for finding new jobs, BIEC concludes.
