Europe has expanded its dominance of hiring fintech among railway companies in the three months ending March.
The number of roles in Europe accounts for 64.3% of the total number of fintech jobs – compared to 6.1% in the same quarter last year.
This was followed by South and Central America, which saw a change of -4.1 percentage points on an annual basis in fintech roles.
The figures are compiled by GlobalData, which tracks the number of new job postings from key companies in different sectors over time. With the help of text analysis, these job postings are then classified thematically.
GlobalData’s thematic approach to sectoral activities seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to withstand the disruptions coming into their industries.
These key topics, which include fintech, have been chosen to cover “any issue that keeps the CEO awake at night”.
Tracking them in job postings allows us to see which companies are leading on specific issues and which are on the heels – and the important thing is where the market is expanding and shrinking.
