Skills Panorama brings first insights on jobs and skills requested in online job vacancies. Based on an ongoing Cedefop project, these first insights cover 7 European countries (Czechia, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Ireland and the United Kingdom). More than 32 million of vacancies were collected and analysed, covering period 1 July 2018 and 31 December 2018.
The analysis provides information on most required occupations and skills across European countries and regions based on established international classifications: ISCO-08 for occupations, NUTS-2 for regions and ESCO version 1 for skills.
Cautionary notice: Cedefop has developed this analysis using a robust methodology and under substantial quality control mechanisms. However, online vacancies are not a comprehensive source of skills and job demand data and many factors influence its completeness and coverage. More analysis and testing will be done in the near future to provide sound evidence for informing policy developments. The fully-fledged system (containing 28 European countries) will be released by 2020.
