News of the 19/03/2018

Economic dynamism seems to be doing well in Paris, where employment is rising again thanks to new companies who recruit shortly after their creation. This is mostly thanks to the private sector and more specifically  start-ups, which massively use shared offices such as those you can find within our network of business centers. If you are looking for a new opportunity to work in Paris and the Paris region? BURO Club gives you leads on the companies and sectors that hire.

Employment in Île-de-France

While the unemployment rate in Paris remains above the national average (12.6% against 9.8%), the Parisian departments show the best growth rates, including the top 3:

  1. 3.5% for Seine-et-Marne
  2. 2.4% for Paris itself
  3. 2.3% for Val d'Oise

This is the direct result of the creation of more than 16,300 companies in 2017, physically established or in virtual offices. This situation suggests the creation of 72,700 jobs in 2018 in the Paris region according to INSEE. This sounds great, but where can you apply really?

The sectors that recruit

If you are proficient in any of the following areas, it may be time to prepare your résumé:

  1. Building (very strong increase of building sites since 2017)
  2. Business services (7800 jobs in the last quarter of 2017)
  3. Accommodation and restaurants (2500 jobs in the second half of 2017)
  4. Communication (2500 jobs in the second half of 2017)
