Leading Spanish recruitment vertical InfoJobs.net has announced the number of jobs found via its site increased by
24 percent in 2017. The portal facilitated 1.49 million employment contracts (“alegrias”), compared to 1.21 million in 2016.

The company hired independent consulting firm TNS to assess its performance in 2017. The results showed that the number of positions secured via InfoJobs has doubled since 2014 — a reflection of the Spanish economy’s improvement.

The TNS report also showed that 76 percent of Spanish professionals used InfoJobs to look for new jobs in 2017, while 34 percent of them found work. The job-finding success rate rose to 51 percent for information and telecommunications professionals, which shows that InfoJobs’ attention to this sector is paying off.

According to TNS’s findings, the largest group of successful candidates (41 percent) are professionals between the ages of 24 and 34. Of these, 39 percent have advanced degrees, 26 percent live in Madrid, and 20 percent in Barcelona. Notably, women accounted for 60 percent of the contracts signed in 2017.

InfoJobs has also managed to speed up the job search process. A successful search is concluded in an average of six weeks, compared to the market average of 10 weeks.

In a news statement, general manager Dominique Cerri (LinkedIn profile) said the company has facilitated more than 10 million contracts in its 20-year history. “This figure gives us confidence that InfoJobs is working, and what we do, we do well.”
