The significant transformation of employment in terms of its quantitative and qualitative characteristics is a hallmark of the current labor market. Some labor market segments differ in the market condition, growth rates, and the mechanisms of adaptation to change. This article aims at analyzing employment trends in the Ukrainian financial sector in the context of global labor market trends. The research is based on methodological approaches to the employment study of the International Labor Organization and the information of the State Statistics Service of Ukraine.
The study found out that in the pre-crisis period, employment in financial activities increased at a faster rate than other types of economic activity. However, after 2008, the trend has reversed. The concentration ratio of employees of the financial and insurance activities in the capital and in economically developed regions is moderate and steadily increasing. A decrease in the intensity of vocational training and advanced training is the negative aspect of the crisis processes in the Ukrainian financial sector.
