A third of the working population of Ukraine now works remotely, according to a survey of the Rating Sociological Group conducted by OLX Robot analysts and released on Oct. 7.
According to the study, internal migration within the country has contributed to the growth of demand and supply of remote work.
From March to September 2022, the largest number of remote work vacancies were in the following categories:
- retail trade/sales/purchases (9,825 ads),
- advertising/design/PR (2,832 ads),
- education/translation (2,662 ads).
During the seven months of the war, employers were actively looking for sales managers (in September, such work on average was estimated at UAH 30,000 ($820)), sellers with a salary of UAH 8,000 ($219), and administrators (almost UAH 24,000 ($656) per month).
There was also quite a lot of work for copywriters with a salary of UAH 27,500 ($752), designers with almost UAH 22,000 ($602), and SMM managers with UAH 17,500 ($479) in September.
In addition, tutors, seamstresses and tailors were in demand for remote work in September as employers offered them on average almost UAH 13,000 ($355) per month, as well as UAH 27,000 ($738) for call-center operators and UAH 11,000 ($301) for accountants.
At the same time, demand and supply on the labor market slightly differed.
