Breve panorâmica do mercado de trabalho

As of 1 January 2013, the population of Luxembourg was 537 039 inhabitants, of whom 238 800 were foreigners, the largest groups being Portuguese (88 200), French (35 200), Italian (18 300) and Belgian nationals (17 600). There are 32 700 foreign nationals from non‑EU Member States.
 
As of 30 September 2013, the employment situation was as follows:
 
  • total domestic employment: 393 628, of whom 164 910 (42%) were cross-border commuters;
  • private-sector employees: 341 417, of whom 160 392 were cross-border commuters;
  • civil servants: 28 690, of whom 870 were cross-border commuters;
  • self-employed: 23 521, of whom 3 648 were cross-border commuters.
 
Over the past 12 months, total employment has risen at a rate of 1.6%. Cross-border employment has risen by 1.4%. In December 2013, the unemployment rate (seasonally adjusted) reached 7.1%, a year-on-year increase of 0.7 of a percentage point.
 
The reduction in the growth of employment noted from the middle of 2008 continued into 2009, a year in which employment stagnated. In 2010, an upturn was evident, the rate of which varied between quarters and averaged at 2.9% for the year as a whole. Employment growth for the year stood at 3.3% in December 2011 and at 2.1% in December 2012. In 2013, total employment growth for the year stood at 1.5% in the first quarter, 1.8% in the second quarter and 1.6% in the third quarter (source: IGSS/CCSS Employment Scoreboard). This weak economic growth in 2012 and 2013 is reflected in a limited number of new jobs being created.
 
On 1 January 2013, the largest employers (excluding the public sector) in the Grand Duchy and in Luxembourg City were, in descending order: 1. the Mittal-Arcelor Group (steelmaking, 4 810 employees); 2. BGL BNP Paribas (banking, 4 060); 3. P+T Luxembourg (post and telecommunications, 3 990); 4. Cactus (retailing group, 3 960); 5. the CFL Group (Luxembourg railway company, 3 910); 6. Goodyear Dunlop Tyres Operations, SA (manufacturers of rubber products, 3 240).
 
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 levels of qualifications.
