Research shows that most of the hiring will be without a formal contract; average remuneration is R$ 1,648.
The sectors of commerce and services foresee the opening of 94.7 thousand temporary jobs by the end of the year. The survey was carried out in all regions of the country by the National Confederation of Shopkeepers (CNDL) and the Credit Protection Service (SPC Brasil), in partnership with Sebrae.
The number came below the survey’s projection for 2021 (105,723 vacancies), when there was optimism related to the mitigation of the pandemic and the return to “normal” life. It is also lower than in 2019 (103,211 vacancies).
The main reasons among those who will not hire are not believing in a significant increase in demand that justifies hiring (35%), not having enough money for hiring (25%) and considering labor charges too high (19%).
Among the entrepreneurs who intend to hire temporary workers, 77% justify that there is demand in the period.
Most plan to hire without a formal contract
Among the companies that will hire temporary employees, 78% will hire for up to 3 months.
Considering the form of hiring, 49% say they will hire informally (without a formal contract) and 48% will hire with registration. Another 14% will hire outsourced workers.
The average number of employees hired temporarily will be 1.5 per company.
Salesperson, helper and clerk have more vacancies
The roles most demanded by companies will be salespeople (29%), assistants (24%), clerks (16%), hairdressers (7%), manicurists (7%) and delivery men (6%).
Women are preferred (25%) over men (17%), although the majority (55%) say they don’t care about the gender of employees.
More than half of the companies (61%) prefer young people between 18 and 34 years old – the average age group is 28 years old.
The average salary expectation is 1.36 minimum wages, around R$1,648. The majority (63%) will offer job openings for between 6 and 8 hours a day.
According to the businessmen, 30% intend to start hiring in October, 26% in November and 17% in December.
Fall in layoffs
Despite the reduction in the number of vacancies that must be created, the survey shows that 87% of entrepreneurs have not laid off in the last 3 months, 10 percentage points more than last year.
According to the survey, 69% of respondents say they intend to maintain the number of employees for the 2nd semester, while 16% intend to increase the number of employees. Already 26% of entrepreneurs say they have already hired or intend to hire employees for the end of the year.
“The decrease in the number of vacancies that will be opened shows a scenario of caution and uncertainty on the part of entrepreneurs, which may be linked to the country’s moment, with an electoral scenario, high inflation and rising interest rates. At the same time, we see the growth of GDP and that companies are laying off less, which brings relief to employees and points to greater stability of unemployment in the country”, highlights the president of CNDL, José César da Costa.
