Employment, a major challenge for industry


Contrary to what is widely believed, French industry is an abundant source of jobs but, unfortunately, jobs that all too often remain unfilled.

In order to draw attention to this phenomenon and to do its bit to remedy it, GLOBAL INDUSTRIE has developed a CAMPUS that is entirely dedicated to employment, training and what the various industry trades have to offer.

The 1,500 m² that have been devoted to it reflect the wealth of careers, promote the trades and highlight jobs that are available, whilst anticipating the impact of automation and digitization over the coming years.

What the press said…
Industry brings back jobs !


The annual study by Trendeo, the analysts, published on Friday 2nd March and posted on the Le Monde website, reported that, “Industry is once again beginning to create a significant number of jobs, with the highest profile example being the hiring that’s taking place in the car plants”, states Mr Cousquer, [founder of Trendeo] (…).
The consequence of all this is that industrial production was been the second largest net creator of jobs, just behind services.
“The recovery is beginning to benefit regions such as the North and the East, which suffered over recent years as a result of the crisis in industry”, adds Mr Cousquer. In fact, Hauts-de-France is the number one French region in terms of net job creation.


This trend may be linked to a phenomenon that is both new and welcome: after having destroyed so many factories, France is finally building them again. In 2017, Trendeo recorded the opening of 125 industrial plants and the closure of 100. A positive balance of 25 factories.
Amongst other positive signals, the analyst reports that major companies have finally joined the job creation movement, whereas, up until now, it has been medium-sized companies and SMEs that have been driving this trend forward.
Finally, Trendeo reports that French start-ups are doing well and represent “a not insignificant source of new jobs (net creation of 11,149 jobs in 2017)”.
