Mission StatementClever minds from Eastern Europe against the shortage of skilled workers
We help fill vacancies
There is a shortage of qualified personnel in many sectors in Germany. We address this problem precisely and provide companies with the skilled workers they urgently need. To do this, we recruit not only clever minds from the DACH region, but also highly qualified personnel from Eastern Europe.
Real shortage or brief bottleneck? When a shortage of skilled workers is official.
In order to assess whether only individual occupations or an entire industry is affected by a shortage of skilled workers, various factors are always considered, e.g.:
- The absolute number of unfilled vacancies in an industry or occupation at a given point in time.
- The increase in open vacancies over a given period of time
- The average time it takes for a vacancy to be filled by a qualified person (vacancy time).
- Possible regional differences
Based on these and other data, the Federal Employment Agency and the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS) compile the so-called list of shortage occupations in Germany every year. For years, a large number of occupations from the health sector and IT have been on this list.
This is the situation in Germany’s IT departments
IT skills shortage in Germany: The status
The situation in the IT sector has been clearly tense for quite some time now. Rapidly advancing digitalisation and globalisation are contributing to the fact that the IT staff shortage in Germany is currently worsening dramatically. The problem cuts across all sectors: the shortage of skilled workers is causing difficulties in administrations and academia, as well as in the private sector. According to the digital association Bitcom, 124,000 IT positions will remain open until the end of 2019 – more than ever before. This represents an increase of 51 per cent compared to the previous year, when no qualified IT specialists could be found for 81,000 positions.
The Talentgain solution:
Bright minds from Eastern Europe for IT positions that can be filled faster
If German companies want to maintain their innovative strength and thus their economic performance at the traditional high level, new and solution-oriented ways must be found to attract excellent IT specialists. Due to the explosive nature of the shortage of IT specialists in society as a whole, there is now something happening on the political side, e.g. the Skilled Workers Immigration Act was recently passed, which is intended to make it easier for foreign specialists from non-EU countries to integrate into German labour market. Simplified immigration conditions apply in part for IT professionals. This opens our borders to highly motivated IT personnel from Eastern Europe.
We at Talentgain have the personnel for your vacant IT positions. If the ideal IT specialist for your company comes from Eastern Europe, we will help you with all the formalities concerning entry, recognition and finding accommodation.
