Poland records big demand for Ukrainian workers

Refugees from Ukraine are starting to enter Polish labor market, which is suffering from a labor deficit. Employment agencies speak of a real boom in their services. There is already a recorded interest of 60% higher level in work enquiries comparing to the same period last year.

The most wanted are construction workers, highly specialized workers, such as welders, locksmiths, carpenters, workers for the production and operation of machinery. There is also great demand in services, trade, tourism and gastronomy, transport, logistics, e-commerce and accounting. Demand is therefore similar to the year before, but the deficit increased. This is due to the fact that the Polish economy is recovering from the pandemic.
