Netherlands - Employment in the banking sector - May 31, 2017

The government jobs agency UWV published an analysis of the perspectives in the banking sector. After considerable job losses in recent years, a further 12,600 financial sector jobs are set to disappear in 2017 and 2018. Between 2012 and 2016, 27,000 finance sector jobs disappeared, as banks closed branches and switched to internet-based services. At the same time, UWV signals a shortage of finance sector specialists and IT technicians, with some 26,000 vacancies, but most are for people with university or college degrees. Low-skilled jobs will remain under pressure.
