The number of job advertisements in "technical professions" rose by 16% between October 2016 and 2015. This is the result of an analysis of the German job market by the training specialist WBS Training. After that, there were around 77,000 job offers for engineers, designers and architects in October 2016, compared to 66,000 in the same month last year. The demand for skilled workers has also risen sharply in the technical areas of construction / crafts / environment (+21.3%) and research-development / natural sciences / high-tech (+ 21.8%). In total, over 183,000 jobs were advertised in these three segments in October 2016, compared to just under 154,000 in the same period last year. Around 44,000 companies were looking for trained specialists for technical professions in October 2016. The engineers alone had around 15000 positions advertised. The overall job market increased by 20.8% from 354,700 to 428,300 in the same period. Around 74,000 companies had advertised vacancies during this period. For the study, job advertisements from 195 online job exchanges, newspapers and specialist magazines as well as the Federal Employment Agency of WBS were evaluated.
Wide range in CAD design and 3D printing
In total, almost 9,000 positions for CAD specialists were advertised in October 2016. The greatest increase was the increase in offers for specialists in the CAD area for construction and architecture. Here the number of job offers rose by almost 28% to around 2000 positions. There were around 1000 job offers (+14.7%) for the medical, metal and precision engineering sectors. And in mechanical, aircraft and vehicle construction, the number of vacancies for CAD specialists rose by around 8% from 3866 to 4179. Regardless of the industry, all CAD areas had special knowledge for the corresponding applications and programs such as AutoCAD, Revit, CATIA or Solid Works. In contrast, a slight decline was observed for designers in the area of CNC and PLC programming, although the number of positions remains at a high level:For specialists in PLC programming, it was around 6% on around 3000 job offers and in CNC programming it was over 13% on around 2000 tenders. However, the demand for special software knowledge, especially for TIA Portal and Eplan, has increased significantly in the area of PLC programming.
