Lintberg Index shows explosive growth in market for 100k+ positions


After a persistent drop caused by the global financial crisis, with an all-time low in August 2010, the November Lintberg Index* figure demonstrates a strong increase in the chances of candidates in the top 2% of the labour market. The main reason for the explosive growth can be found in the number of new 100k+ job openings, combined with a limited rise in new candidates entering the market.

After an initial rise in September the Lintberg Index stabilized throughout October, before starting its way to the top in November. Although it might be too early to tell, the tell-tale signs could indicate a nearing end of the crisis that hit candidates worldwide or maybe even the steady beginning of an upwards recovery process.

Let’s just wait and see what the traditionally slow holiday month of December will bring…

* The Lintberg Index is a monthly analysis of developments in the top 2% of the labour market. The index is a weighted index based on the number of running vacancies, the number of new vacancies, the positions advertising period and the total the number of application on €100K+ jobs in the Netherlands based on the input of the market leader Lintberg. A higher index indicates an improved labour market for professionals in the 100k+ segment.
