Europe sees hiring boom in healthcare industry digitalization roles

Roles in Europe made up 12.1% of total digitalization jobs, which is up from 2.6% in the same quarter last year.

By Michael Goodier

Europe was the fastest growing region for digitalization hiring among healthcare industry companies in the three months ending October.

The number of roles in Europe made up 12.1 per cent of total digitalization jobs – up from 2.6 per cent in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by Asia-Pacific, which saw a 0.7 year-on-year percentage point change in digitalization 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 digitalization, 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 digitalization roles in the healthcare industry?

The fastest growing country was France, which saw 0.2 per cent of all digitalization job adverts in the three months ending July last year, increasing to 3.2 per cent in the three months ending October this year.

That was followed by Germany (up 2.9 percentage points), the United Kingdom (up 1.9), and Australia (up 1.1).

The top country for digitalization roles in the healthcare industry is the United States which saw 82.8 per cent of all roles in the three months ending October.

Which cities are the biggest hubs for digitalization workers in the healthcare industry?

Some 12.1 per cent of all healthcare industry digitalization roles were advertised in Las Vegas (United States) in the three months ending October - more than any other city.
