The year 2022 will have marked the return of strong tensions on the job market

”, indicates a study by the recruitment firm PageGroup.

The major problem lies in the lack of employees, and the difficulty in hiring them.

For 86% of recruiters, “

there is an insufficient number of candidates in 2022


Job vacancies have thus multiplied, particularly in the transport and logistics sector, with an increase of 85% over one year.

Same observation in finance-insurance, with a rebound of 77% and in health with a 75% increase in the number of offers.

In 2022, IT and telecommunications recorded a 63.8% increase in offers, which will continue in the coming months

All types of contracts are concerned: 3.9 million permanent contracts were published in the first half of 2022, supplemented by 890,000 fixed-term contracts.

These figures are based on the analysis of 800 professions, spread over 24 sectors.

To satisfy these offers, recruiters are forced to turn to different profiles, such as senior employees.

The Association for the employment of executives (Apec) also recalls that “

100,000 executives over the age of 55 are registered with Pôle Emploi


Young apprentices are also a target of choice, even if they “

may not yet have all the expected skills.

However, they have a certain capacity for evolution and the necessary commitment

Salaries 30% higher than the market

In order to attract ever more qualified candidates, some sectors do not hesitate to significantly increase salaries.

In finance, an accounting director can claim an annual salary of 70,000 to 90,000 euros, for profiles with between five and ten years of experience.

At the start of a career, the salary increase is thus 16%, compared to the year 2021. In the pharmaceutical industry, "

the shortage of talent is causing a significant increase in salary conditions with, for certain very specific positions, the temptation to offer salaries 30% higher than those of the market


PageGroup specifies, for example, that a regulatory affairs pharmacist saw his salary increase by 18%, to fluctuate between 45,000 and 50,000 euros per year.

The employment market for industrial companies also accelerated strongly in 2022 and exceeds that of 2019. Among the most significant salary increases are maintenance technicians (6 to 8%), production engineers ( 6%) or project managers (5%).

Finally, the study projects that in 2023, “

all IT functions will be in tension with a shortage of candidates
