The demand for SAP consultants even rose by 39 percent, from 3,062 to 4,255 vacancies in January 2014. The entire job market in Germany is, however, increased in that period by only about 1.5 percent. The results are based on an analysis of 185 job markets on the Internet, in newspapers and journals.

Joachim Giese, Executive Vice President of the WBS Training AG: "As a certified training providers and training partner of SAP Germany AG & Co. KG has surprised us this surge in demand a bit. But it coincides with the rising demand for our respective training opportunities that we could observe in recent months.

A total of 11,347 points for SAP users nationwide were announced in January. Were sought primarily specialists in the departments of finance, sales, production planning and control and inventory management and logistics. For almost all applications, a significant increase of jobs could be determined. For example, the increase in job offers for SAP users was in sales at over 50 percent.

SAP consultants wanted - Large increase in the human resources

A total of 4,255 posts were advertised in January 2014 for SAP consultants, the increase over the same month last year here was nearly 40 percent. In all areas where SAP consultants work more jobs than in January 2013 could be counted in January 2014. Particularly strong increase was carried out by consultants in the areas of Human Resources (40 %) and controlling (about 27 %). However, since SAP consultants often work freelance, the number of vacancies shows only a portion of the actual situation on the job market.

Large differences in regional demand: Nearly 60 percent of all jobs in South Germany

Both consultants and application specialists are mainly looking for the south of Germany. In the states of Baden -W├╝rttemberg, Bavaria, Hesse, Rhineland -Palatinate and Saarland, nearly 60 percent of jobs were advertised. Only about ten percent of the sites were, however, offered in the eastern states. These significant differences are thereby only partly due to the fact that the company SAP is headquartered in Walldorf, Baden-W├╝rttemberg. This region is strongly influenced by the industry, so there is here a very wide demand. Applicants with SAP knowledge but have nationwide good chances to find a job, because the demand has increased significantly in the other regions.
