Bulgaria keeps recording an increase in offers for remote jobs and their share in October was 13.5%. The increase compared to the previous month is 7%, and for the last four months this growth is 29%, according to a study of the dynamics of the labour market in our country, prepared by an HR company and a popular career site.

In general, in October there was a decline in published job advertisements - their number is almost 44,000, which is 8.4 percent less than in September. If we compare on an annual basis, however, we will see that the ads are 55% more than in October 2020.

The Trade and Sales sector continues to be in first place in terms of the share of new job annoucements - by 21%. The IT industry is increasingly holding the second position, increasing its share from 16% to 18%.

For a number of positions, there is a tendency to require applicants to have a so-called green certificate certifying a completed cycle of vaccination against Covid-19. Currently, the number of job offers with such requirements is very small (only 0.2% of all), but, like in other countries, it is possible that it might grow due to the still high morbidity and the need to provide safe working conditions.
