, Asia RPA

Freelancer.com reported that the number of job vacancies on its online recruiting platform rose 41% year over year to 605,000 in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. The increase over the first quarter was 25%.

Math and statistics jobs were among the fastest growing jobs, according to the company’s Fast 50 report for Q2 2020, which lists the 50 fastest growing and fastest declining jobs. The report was released last week.

“The online freelance job market continues to thrive despite global challenges,” said Matt Barrie, CEO and Chairman of Freelancer.com. “A flurry of demand began towards the end of Q1 2020 and by Q2 2020 the number of users joining our platform, including freelancers and employers looking for freelancers, skyrocketed.”

Jobs with the greatest surge in demand were “Math, Matlab, Mathematica, Algorithm”. In addition, Freelancer.com reported that statistics and statistical analysis are among the top 10 fastest growing. The company found that the Covid-19 outbreak increased the volume of data by tracking and tracing coronavirus cases, hospital stays, tests performed, and more.

On the flip side, Freelancer.com found that the number of “local jobs” fell 36% to 1,174 in the second quarter. This includes on-site tasks such as cleaning a house or assembling Ikea furniture.
