REVEALED: The best countries in Europe to get a new job

Earlier this week we told you that half of UK workers plan to quit their jobs in 2016.

If you’re one of them then recruitment wesbite Glassdoor’s latest ranking of the best countries in Europe for getting a new job might come in handy.

Glassdoor’s research found that Estonia is the best country in Europe to get employed.

The Baltic state took the top spot based on three indicators — temporary employment, temporary youth employment, and involuntary part-time work.

Norway was named second-best country to find a new job while the UK came in third.

Glassdoor chief economist Andrew Chamberlain said:  “European labour markets today are diverse and present myriad challenges — as well as opportunities — for job seekers.

“On the one hand, countries like the UK, Germany, Austria and Switzerland enjoy below average unemployment. By contrast, Greece, Spain and Portugal have continued to struggle with double-digit unemployment and slow economic growth—partly due to inflexible labour market regulations that have proven difficult to reform in recent years.”

  • What year's data is this based on? Norway has a large Oil and Gas industry which is heavily suffering right now because of the low oil price. It might be a good country to work in, but finding a job there right now isn't going to be easy ...
