Looking for SAP Consultants, Especially in Southern Germany



Looking for SAP consultants, especially in Southern Germany
Well-trained SAP professionals expect bright prospects, as the demand for consultants and application specialists for enterprise software from SAP has increased by about 30 percent last year. 

This is the result of an analysis of the German job market by training specialists WBS Training AG. Accordingly, in January 2014, 15,600 jobs for SAP professionals were advertised in the same period last year there were only about 12,000. In January 2014 there were 11,347 jobs with around 27 per cent more jobs that called SAP user skills. 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. Our study shows that a qualification in products, solutions and services from SAP provides very good job and career prospects."

Increasing Demand for SAP users almost all departments

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. In the retail sector were counted than in the previous month in January 2014, almost three times as many offers.

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.
