Similar dynamics can be seen on Jooble, another job search engine with presence in Ukraine. In early October, it listed 143,703 jobs, but by 26 November the figure had dropped to 120,236.

«The number of job listings drops every autumn—we saw it in 2019, too. This year, however, the decrease has been more gradual» — commented Work.ua CEO Artur Mikhno.

The largest decrease has been seen in the catering industry (waiters, cooks, barista, beer sellers), as well in openings for assembly, cleaning, picker, and general worker jobs.

Pharmacists, car mechanic, internet marketing specialists, seamstresses, and couriers are rising to the top now.

Meanwhile, the IT job openings are on the rise. Last week, Djinni’s listings included 13,106 vacancies for IT specialists, 7% up week-on-week. The openings for migrant workers abroad show growth, too.

We continue to keep track of the effects the COVID-19 pandemic has on the businesses and peoples’ lives in Ukraine. Visit our Business under lockdown page for the latest updates.
