Job postings in the five largest Western European capitals are lagging.
Job postings are slower to recover where more people work from home and high-street footfall remains low, making it harder for redundant workers to find jobs.
Competition for jobs has risen most in places where work was already hardest to find, raising concerns about widening geographic inequality.

The Indeed Hiring Lab is an international team of economists who provide insights that help drive the global labour market conversation.
