«A spike in the number of overseas jobs offered to Ukrainians is caused by the summer season and the significant impact that our migrant workers have on the economies of the host countries. Moreover, such increased demand for overseas jobs is caused by the ease of quarantine restrictions—both in Ukraine and in certain European countries.
Many countries promote employment for Ukrainians, which by all means boosts demand for overseas jobs»,
— says Olena Kirilievnina, Chief of the Partner Relations Department at Jooble.
According to Vasyl Voskoboynyk, President of the All-Ukrainian Association of International Employment Companies,
According to the Association, 1.8 million job offers were issued in Poland with 150,000 of such offers being issued in the Czech Republic in 2020. Furthermore, there is a marked tendency for migration balance in Germany to decline over the past five years.
There are several reasons why Ukrainian workers are in high demand abroad in 2021:
However, not all countries are so happy to see Ukrainian migrant blue-collar workers. In particular, Germany is mostly interested in hiring competent professionals, and it is quite difficult to get a legal blue-collar job. The same is true for the Czech Republic.
In contrast, Poland counts on migrant workers for economic development purposes; the government is now doing its best to turn labor migration into labor emigration. Moreover, the country is planning to raise the minimum wage to PLN 3,000 or UAH 21,000 in 2022.
