The supply and demand of each country is closely related to its industry, its culture, its geographical location, its socio-political context and its sources of natural resources. Currently, all these factors have been influenced by globalization, which has encouraged professionals in all sectors to qualify, update and seek better opportunities.
In this post, we will talk about the labour panorama in Spain, which sectors are growing the most, the most in-demand jobs and where the supply is moving. Whether you are already working or actively looking for a job, keep reading this post with us, we will tell you everything.
The Spanish labour market has experienced very significant changes in the demand for professionals, with a push towards digital and sustainable skills. At the same time, growth has been seen in key sectors such as technology, tourism, healthcare and renewable energy. Alignment with the labour needs and regulations of Europe has been another important aspect in the evolution of the Spanish labour market in the last decade.
There has been an evolution in the demand for skills and professional profiles. There has been an increase in the need for specialized technology profiles, such as software developers, data analysis experts, cybersecurity specialists and IT professionals. Additionally, there has been a growing emphasis on skills related to sustainability, digital marketing, artificial intelligence and project management.
Some sectors have experienced notable growth, such as technology, tourism, health, renewable energy and the agri-food industry. Digitalization has driven the development of startups and innovative companies, while tourism and health have been traditional sectors that have maintained a constant demand for professionals.
Labour harmonization and the focus on job mobility have led to a greater focus on language skills, especially in English and other European languages. In addition, a trend has been observed towards adaptation to European labour regulations, such as the promotion of gender equality policies, data protection (in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR), and the promotion of diversity in work environments.
The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of remote work and digitalization in many sectors. This has led to greater work flexibility and the need for skills related to remote management, cybersecurity, handling digital tools and adapting to virtual work environments.
Although we have already emerged from the pandemic, it has marked a before and after in the business sector; implementing new methodologies, business models and generating new needs. During the toughest times, we were forced to accelerate the digital transformation process in order to remain competitive, which is why, now more than ever, jobs related to the latest technologies top the list of the ten most in-demand jobs. But also, others such as a transporter or warehouse worker are also included in this list, as “collateral damage” from the rise of online sales.
