Although most vacancies are in low-skilled professions, there are also demands for specialists: doctors, nurses, programmers, customer service experts. The job opportunities are available throughout the country but most are in Rīga.
The head of the State Employment Agency in Rīga Sandra Tarabrina said that the number of vacancies is likely to grow. She said that there are more opportunities in 'male-dominated sectors' like construction, production, transport and agriculture but many options are available.
Employers ready to provide workspaces are invited to register the vacancy with the State Employment Agency.
