As of 9 November, 13,205 vacancies are available, distributed in 3716 job ads. Wage data refers only to ads that indicate pay, but most of the positions are advertised without this information, IME said. For 56% of advertisements containing 52% of jobs, there is no announced pay or duration of the work day.
At regional level, the average salary ranges from 515 leva in Yambol to 1049 leva in Smolyan, where there is a serious demand for metalworkers and welders (in very good financial conditions). The average salary in the capital is the second highest - 815 leva.
Despite the current Smolyan Championship in terms of average wages, the capital continues to be the area concentrating a large part of vacancies, both in general (26.5%) and high-paying advertisements, IME said. In Sofia are only 18% of the minimum wage jobs and 51% of those offering over 1000 leva. More than half of the listings in the capital are for over 750 leva pay.
