Compared to October 2018, the index fell by 0,5 percent, while the seasonally adjusted values ​​of the index indicate an increase compared to the previous month of 1,2 percent – this stagnation in labor demand is in line with the general slowdown in economic momentum.If we look at a longer period, the seasonally adjusted values ​​(and trends) of the index show that job ads, after sharp growth until 2018, have been stagnant for almost two years, the Institute of Economics Zagreb points out, adding that apart from stagnation, everything is visible. greater oscillation of labor demand around trend values ​​- labor demand due to the tourist season is becoming more pronounced. NEXT YEAR 30.000 PERMITS FOR FOREIGNERS IN TOURISM “Although it may be too early to say that the Croatian labor market is transforming in the direction of stagnant labor demand with an increasing share of jobs with fixed-term contracts, the fact that in the last two years we have not seen a significant increase in job advertisements. two years record in terms of the share of fixed-term contracts in total demand, supports such a conclusion ” emphasize from the Institute of Economics Zagreb.center_img This interpretation is supported by the fact that almost half of the required jobs are offered with fixed-term contracts, while ten years ago this type of employment modality accounted for 20 to 25 percent of the demand for work in published online ads.

Rentals disappearing as Brisbane moves towards landlord’s market

GET THE LATEST REAL ESTATE NEWS DIRECT TO YOUR INBOX HERE More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus16 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market16 hours ago Brisbane’s rental vacancy rate fell to 2.8 per cent in August, according to SQM Research. Image: AAP/James Ross.Around 9500 residential rentals are sitting empty in the city, compared with more than 19,000 in Sydney, as rising demand eats up surplus stock. But in good news for tenants, rents in Brisbane are holding firm — for now.The asking rent for a three-bedroom house in the city slipped just 0.4 per cent over the past month to $450 a week, while unit rents rose slightly to $371 a week. NEWS PRESENTER’S PLACE TO LET OFF STEAM BRISBANE UNITS SAFE AS HOUSES Brisbane is becoming a landlord’s market, with more people moving to the city to rent.SQM Research managing director Louis Christopher said Brisbane was experiencing a sustained reduction in its vacancy rate, driven by underlying demand sparked by a peak in housing completions and increased interstate migration.“The worst is definitely behind the Brisbane housing market, there is no question about that, and our expectation is vacancy rates will continue to fall from these levels,” Mr Christopher said.“There are more southerners moving from Sydney and Melbourne to southeast Queensland to take advantage of the standard of living and better housing affordability — both on the buyer front and the rental front.“Why this is happening now, as opposed to five years ago, is because job creation has increased in the Brisbane and southeast Queensland economy.”But Mr Christopher said the vacancy rate needed to get closer to 2 per cent before Brisbane could officially be declared a landlord’s market.He said asking rents would also likely start to rise as the vacancy rate continued to tighten.“When we do get close to that 2 per cent mark, that will put upward pressure on rents.” The national vacancy rate slipped to 2.1 per cent in August, according to SQM Research. The national residential vacancy rate dipped to 2.1 per cent in August, with 70,447 properties sitting empty across the country. Sydney’s vacancy rate is the highest in 13 years, with 2.8 per cent of the city’s units and houses unoccupied, yet the asking rent for a three-bedroom house in the city is still the highest in the country at $708 a week.last_img read more
