Are you planning a move to Poland and wondering if there is a demand for your skills and experience? Let's find out which professionals are most sought-after in the Polish job market.

The annual Occupational Barometer survey, commissioned by the Ministry of Family, Labour and Social Policy provides short-term labour market forecasts for Poland. According to the latest report, a lot of industries in Poland will face increasing talent shortages in 2020, due to a variety of social, economic and environmental factors including low unemployment rates, undesirable working conditions (e.g. low pay, working weekends) or young people's reluctance to take up certain careers. Experts predict the following jobs will be the hardest to fill in 2020:

MOST IN-DEMAND JOBS IN POLAND

Construction: construction workers, steel fixers and concrete placers, sheet metal workers, roofers, pavers, carpenters, masons and plasterers, HVAC/Gas fitters , heavy equipment operators, finishing process engineers;

Manufacturing: machine tool operators, woodworkers and carpenters, welders, machinists, electricians, electromechanical engineers, apparel workers;

Transport: bus drivers, LGV drivers, tractor unit drivers;

Catering: cooks, bakers;

Healthcare: doctors, nurses and midwives, physiotherapists, massage therapists and carers;

Services: hairdressers;

Finance: bookkeepers and accountants, especially professionals with foreign language skills.

As regards low-demand jobs, the survey have found that economists are the only "surplus occupation" in Poland, meaning there are more potential employees than currently available positions in the market.

Location wise, Warsaw’s job market has been singled out as the most diverse in the country, with a growing number of foreign employees taking up a wide range of jobs across different industries - from low-skilled professions to IT-related roles such as analysts, testers, graphic designers, database administrators and programmers.
