Some 30,560 vacancies were advertised in October

A record number of job postings, some 30,560, was advertised in the month of October, reports Finans.

While the number of lay-offs remained low, figures for vacant jobs increased to a similar level as before the financial crisis in 2008.

According to Tore Stramer, the chief analyst at Nykredit, the number of online job postings has almost doubled since June 2011.

Some 750 people were handed a redundancy notice in October, which is a little below the monthly average of 780 and much less than the 4,200 handed out during the peak months of the crisis.

Nykredit expects Denmark’s GDP to grow by about 1.5 percent this year and by about 2 percent in 2016.
