  • self-employed persons: 24 060, including 3 845 cross-border commuters.
 
Over the past 12 months, total employment has risen by 2.4%. Cross-border employment has risen by 2.6%.
In December 2014, the unemployment rate (seasonally adjusted) was 7.0%, a fall of 0.1 of a percentage point since December 2013.
 
The slowdown in employment growth starting in mid-2008 continued into 2009, a year in which employment stagnated. 2010 saw an upturn, the rate of which varied between quarters and on 31 December 2010 averaged 2.9% annually. Annual employment growth stood at 3.3% in December 2011, 2.1% in December 2012 and 1.7 % in December 2013. In 2014, total annual employment growth stood at 2.4% in the first quarter, 2.2% in the second quarter and 2.4% in the third quarter (Source: IGSS/CCSS employment scoreboard). The weak economic growth over the past three years is reflected in a limited number of new jobs being created.
 
On 1 January 2014, the largest employers (excluding the public sector and covering both the Grand Duchy and the city of Luxembourg) were, in descending order: 1. The ArcelorMittal Group (steelmaking, 4 600 employees), 2. BGL BNP Paribas (banking, 4 060); 3. P+T Luxembourg (post and telecommunications, 3 990); 4. The Cactus group (retailing group, 3 990), 5. 5. The CFL Group (Luxembourg railway company, 3 970), 6. Goodyear Dunlop Tyres Operations SA (manufacturer of rubber products, 3 250).

An updated list of the main employers is available on the website of the national statistics institute of Luxembourg (STATEC):       http://www.statistiques.public.lu/fr/entreprises/index.html
 
Employment conditions are attractive, and companies can therefore demand relatively high qualification levels.
