Lintberg Index increases by 7 points


The Lintberg Index for July, representing the chances for candidates in the executive segment of the labour market, shows a substantial rise of 7 index points as opposed to June. After three months of relatively little change, the index for July reaches 82 points.

Despite the holiday season, the number of published €100k+ positions increased by more than 8% compared to June. In return, the same period saw a decrease in processed applications of 25%. Combined, this explains the rise of the index. The number of outstanding jobs dropped by 2.9% in July, making this the fifth consecutive decline in as many months.

“Most noticeably is the rise of the number of €100k+ positions in the finance sector, during the pas three months,” says Thomas Verbeeck of Lintberg.
