Europe is seeing a hiring boom in healthcare industry AI roles

The number of roles in Europe made up 9.3% of total AI jobs.

By Michael Goodier

Europe was the fastest growing region for artificial intelligence (AI) hiring among healthcare industry companies in the three months ending September.

The number of roles in Europe made up 9.3 per cent of total AI jobs – up from 6.6 per cent in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by North America, which saw a -6.6 year-on-year percentage point change in AI roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include artificial intelligence, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

Which countries are seeing the most growth for AI roles in healthcare providers?

The fastest growing country was France, which saw 3.3 per cent of all AI job adverts in the three months ending June last year, increasing to 3.7 per cent in the three months ending September this year.

That was followed by Germany (up 0.3 percentage points), Romania (up -1.1), and the United States (up -6.10000000000001).

The top country for AI roles in the healthcare industry is the United States which saw 85.1 per cent of all roles in the three months ending September.

Which cities are the biggest hubs for AI workers in healthcare providers?

Some 18.6 per cent of all healthcare industry AI roles were advertised in Dublin (United States) in the three months ending September - more than any other city.

That was followed by Cranberry Township (United States) with 18.6 per cent, Boston (United States) with 3.7 per cent, and Advance (United States) with 3.7 per cent.
