Welcome to Euro London’s European Hiring Trends Report. With offices in London as well as operations in Windsor, Manchester, Frankfurt, Munich, Düsseldorf, Paris, Luxembourg and Zurich, we are in an ideal position to give you a snapshot of recruitment trends for multilingual staff across Europe.
The findings in this report reflect a mixed picture across Europe, though there are finally signs of at least some light at the end of the tunnel. In the first quarter of this year, the economy of the European Union as a whole has been stable, although some individual member states are facing austere times with debt deficits to take control of.

Towards the end of 2009 Euro London was busy putting together its biannual ‘European Hiring Trends Report’ - a survey of employment markets across the areas we operate in (London, Windsor and Manchester in the UK and Paris, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Munich, Luxembourg and Zurich across mainland Europe.)
The results? Overall the message was positive – conditions are improving slowly but surely and the jobs market looks set to improve throughout 2010.
Here’s a summary of what we found in the UK:
- French and German remain the most popular languages, although there has also been a strong demand for Dutch and Scandinavian languages
- Most sectors improving slowly
- Demand has grown for sales and marketing professionals, especially in the digital marketing arena and inbanking and finance
- iGaming and betting remains buoyant
- Continued lack of high quality candidates but bigger pool of talent has led to employers being less flexible
- Increased confidence about the year ahead
Elsewhere, Germany has been experiencing stronger growth, especially in IT. Along with France it has also seen a boost in sales and marketing, and accountancy remains quite strong. Most countries also found that the decision making process was a long one when it came to hiring new staff, often leading to businesses losing out on the best candidates.
