A workforce deficit in Romania

The shortage of workforce in Romania is getting more and more obvious. The number of employed individuals as a whole, as well as the number of qualified specialists in particular, has decreased significantly in the last years and that trend is expected to continue in the future.

The number of companies, which claim that it’s getting harder and harder to find qualified personnel like engineers, finance specialists and programmers, is increasing. The biggest shortage of labor force is in Bucharest, followed by Cluj-Napoca, Timisoara, Brasov and Ploiesti. If we look at the approximate number of vacant job positions for 2016 by sectors, we will see that the biggest shortage is in the processing industry (15 800 jobs), followed by healthcare (8 400 jobs) and retail (5 200 jobs).
