In Russia, since mid-summer 2020, the demand for labour in the construction and repair sector has sharply increased, RIA Real Estate reports with reference to the Rabota.ru job search service.
It is specified that the data were studied for the period from October 2019 to November 2020. In November of this year, compared to the same period of 2019, the rate of decrease in the number of CVs in construction was 23 per cent, and the demand for services in the field of construction and repair has increased sharply since mid-summer of this year.
However, in the regions, the number of active CVs of representatives of the construction professions began to grow. Experts explain this by the fact that during the coronavirus pandemic, many people returned to their native settlements. As for the size of wages in construction, there has been a slight increase since August, while the salary expectations of job seekers have decreased by 9 per cent.
