On paper, as of this month, state employment has been frozen and the expansion of the budget apparatus has stopped. On the other hand, recruitment efforts that were already in place are being maintained. This is how we got to the situation where, in April, no less than 3000 jobs for budget managers were published on the Internet.
At the end of last year, it was announced that no less than 90,000 vacancies in the state apparatus would be released. With the exception of those in Health and Education, from May 2023, however, hiring freezes were ordered until the end of this year. According to an eJobs analysis, however, no fewer than 3,000 jobs went online in April, bringing the total from January to the end of last month to about 10,000.
What is happening with the jobs in Romania, with the budget workers
“The measure to freeze positions is aimed at reducing the budget deficit, but it will not apply to employment in Education and Health, where there is a considerable need for staff. In fact, the health system has been, from the beginning of the year until now, one of the strongest employers and it is very likely that this will not change, given that, for this sector, there is a memorandum that requires its exemption from the given ordinance by the Government”, said Roxana Drăghici, Head of Sales within eJobs Romania.
Of the 3,000 positions put up for competition, approximately 20% are for doctors, assistants and nurses, according to jobradar24.ro, quoted by Economedia.ro. About 11% are for workers, 6.5% for caregivers and 5.3% for clerks. The least wanted in April were technicians, carpenters, masseurs, locksmiths and hydrological engineers.
About 90% were executive positions, 2824 and only 5% targeted management positions. Of the 3,000 positions, 1,745 jobs were posted by local institutions, 410 by town halls, 360 by county institutions and just over 200 by national institutions. At least, in the month of April, they employed the county councils, the Government and the ministries and regional institutions. At the same time, 173 positions were vacant in the military units.
As for the cities where massive hiring is done, Bucharest is in first place with almost 600 positions, followed by Cluj with 226 offers and Brașov, Constanța, Timiș, each with over 100 positions put up for competition. The fewest positions existed for candidates from Covasna, Arad, Caraș-Severin, Giurgiu, Gorj or Botoșani.
“To the 3,000 jobs available in the state in April, almost 33,000 are added from the private sector, where things are more nuanced and the addressability to candidates is somewhat wider, in conditions where variables such as remote or hybrid work appear, the jobs time or on a project basis, which attract a certain part of the candidates, especially the very young ones”, explains Roxana Drăghici.
As a footnote, at the moment, on jobradar24.ro there are a total of 2,000 state jobs, 1,000 of which have been filled in the meantime, and there are 34,000 jobs on eJobs.
