Connectivity hiring levels in the ship industry rose to a year-high in April 2022

We've analysed hiring patterns using data from GlobalData

By Data Journalism Team

The proportion of ship equipment supply, product and services companies hiring for connectivity related positions rose in April 2022 compared with the equivalent month last year, with 32.3% of the companies included in our analysis recruiting for at least one such position.

This latest figure was higher than the 26.1% of companies who were hiring for connectivity related jobs a year ago and an increase compared to the figure of 26.6% in March 2022.

When it came to the rate of all job openings that were linked to connectivity, related job postings rose in April 2022, with 0.3% of newly posted job advertisements being linked to the topic.

This latest figure was the highest monthly figure recorded in the past year and is an increase compared to the 0.2% of newly advertised jobs that were linked to connectivity in the equivalent month a year ago.

Connectivity is one of the topics that GlobalData, from whom our data for this article is taken, have identified as being a key disruptive force facing companies in the coming years. Companies that excel and invest in these areas now are thought to be better prepared for the future business landscape and better equipped to survive unforeseen challenges.

Our analysis of the data shows that ship equipment supply, product and services companies are currently hiring for connectivity jobs at a rate lower than the average for all companies within GlobalData's job analytics database. The average among all companies stood at 1.4% in April 2022.

GlobalData's job analytics database tracks the daily hiring patterns of thousands of companies across the world, drawing in jobs as they're posted and tagging them with additional layers of data on everything from the seniority of each position to whether a job is linked to wider industry trends.
