The Data behind the Digital HR Job Market


Article posted by Dan Harry


Our latest findings uncovered three hidden gem locations with a greater amount of HRIT specialists in the region compared to the rest of Germany:

  • Greater Munich Metropolitan Region

  • Frankfurt Rhein-Main Metropolitan Area

  • Cologne Bonn Region

These competitive areas, in comparison to nationwide job openings, may make it increasingly difficult for an HRIT specialist to find a role. A remote role or a role with travel may be best for someone living in these regions.

The locations currently experiencing a high amount of demand for HRIT specialists are:

  • Rhein-Neckar Metropolitan Area

  • Greater Dusseldorf Area

  • Stuttgart Region

However, the fastest growing demand for HRIT specialists is in the Ruhr Region, with a 30% growth in demand over the last month.


HRIT specialists’ median tenure is 1.8 years. With many implementation projects and the subsequent adoption of new software taking a significant amount of time, coupled with extremely high demand for this skill set, new opportunities with greater salaries and benefits start to drive specialists to search for a new role.

Sourcing Talent For The Future

The top three universities producing talent in the HRIT space include:

  • FOM University of Applied Sciences for Economics and Management

  • Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University

  • Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich
