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
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.
