The health challenge: a forecast 11.6 million jobs accross the EU to be filled from 2013 to 2025.

Key facts:

  • Health is forecast to be a growth sector, with a net increase of 1.8 million jobs across the EU between 2013 and 2025. This will mainly be in occupations not related to medicine per se.
  • Over half of current health employees in the European Union is anticipated to retire or leave the sector for another reason, leading to a total 11.6 million job openings, a higher number than in any other sector.
  • Changes in how health services are delivered to meet the needs of Europe’s ageing population and to reflect greater specialism are leading to the creation of new job roles and the up-skilling of existing health occupations.
