Europe was the fastest growing region for digital media hiring among tech industry companies in the three months to June.
The number of roles in Europe accounted for 14.3% of total digital media employment, up from 12.5% in the same quarter last year.
This was followed by Asia-Pacific, which saw a 1.1 percentage point year-over-year change in digital media roles.
The figures are compiled by GlobalData, which tracks the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job postings are then categorized by topic.
GlobalData’s thematic approach to industry activity aims to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best positioned to weather the coming disruptions in their industries.
These key themes, which include digital media, are chosen to cover “any issue that keeps a CEO up at night.”
Tracking them through job postings allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their feet – and more importantly where the market is growing and contracting.
