Hiring trends in Belgium

Recruitment levels will remain high, with economic growth spurring businesses to increase headcount. Hiring managers will face acute skills shortages, with mid and senior level candidates  articularly in short supply. Employers will need to take a flexible approach, considering professionals with transferable skills to fill business critical roles.

Professionals with foreign language skills will be in particularly high demand as Belgian businesses look to expand into international markets. All sectors will be highly active in recruiting with businesses in Belgium being influenced by the broader European recovery.

We anticipate salary growth ahead of inflation and employers will make competitive offers to secure the best candidates. In addition, a clear path to career progression and the freedom to work remotely and flexibly will be key priorities for many professionals.
