North America is seeing a hiring boom in private banking industry robotics roles

By Michael Goodier

North America extended its dominance for robotics roles hiring among private banking industry companies in the three months ending December.

The number of roles in North America made up 31.5 per cent of total robotics jobs – up from 29.2 per cent in the same quarter in 2020.

That was followed by Middle East & Africa, which saw a 1.1 year-on-year percentage point change in robotics roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include robotics, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

Which countries are seeing the most growth for robotics job ads in the private banking industry?

The fastest growing country was the United Kingdom, which saw 1.3 per cent of all robotics job adverts in the three months ending December 2020, increasing to 6.3 per cent in the three months ending December.

That was followed by Australia (up 1.7 percentage points), the Philippines (up 1.5), and Canada (up 1.5).

The top country for robotics roles in the private banking industry is the United States which saw 26.3 per cent of all roles advertised in the three months ending December.

Which cities are the biggest hubs for robotics workers in the private banking industry?

Some 3.8 per cent of all private banking industry robotics roles were advertised in Toronto (Canada) in the three months ending December - more than any other city.

That was followed by Pune (India) with 3.8 per cent, Brno (Czech Republic) with three per cent, and Mumbai (India) with three per cent.
