The Employment Service reports that since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, more than 17,400 Ukrainians have been employed in Lithuania. This is about a half of all working age people. In comparison, only 5 percent of working age Ukrainians secured a job in Luxembourg, Bulgaria, or Belgium.
Ukrainian war refugees work in all municipalities of Lithuania, almost a third – in Vilnius.
According to the Employment Service, more than 1.400 Ukrainians (8 percent) work in jobs requiring high professional qualifications. Most of the Ukrainians employed in Lithuania since the start of hostilities – 11.400 (65.6 percent) – work in positions requiring average professional qualifications. Finally, 4.600 Ukrainians (i.e., a quarter of the working population) work in low-skilled and unskilled jobs.
Overall, more than 65.300 Ukrainian have arrived in Lithuania since the start of the war.
