Summary

Highest growth is expected in medium - skilled white collar and blue collar occupations; moderate growth is expected in high - skilled jobs.

Key facts:

  • Slovakia’s employment rate was 65% in 2013 – lower than both the national 2020 target of 72% and the EU-28 2020 target of 75%.
  • More than 210,000 jobs are forecast to be created by 2025, mainly in business services and manufacturing.
  • Highest growth is expected in medium-skilled white collar and blue collar occupations; moderate growth is expected in high-skilled jobs.
  • Efforts to substantially increase tertiary education could lead to structural imbalances in skills demand and supply, as the supply of highly qualified workers will most likely exceed new jobs for those with high-skills in specific occupations.
