Nearly half of the surplus balance of new jobs spots – the difference between hirings and redundancies — in recession-battered Greece in March 2018 were in the tourism sector, specifically 27,325 out of 55,494, or 49.23 percent.

The geographic distribution of the new jobs is also indicative, with more than 10,000 coming in the southern Aegean region, i.e. the popular Cyclades islands, along with roughly another 10,000 on Crete.
Other well-known holiday destinations, such as the Ionian islands, Halkidiki prefecture and the greater Athens area showed increased hirings.

Compared to March 2017, 16,977 more jobs spots were created in March 2018, year to year.
On the “down side”, most of the new jobs were part-time or contract work, 52.2 percent of the total; 53.34 percent in the first trimester of 2018. At the same time, 3,167 employment contracts were transformed from full-time to part-time or rotational work.

Overall, new jobs in March 2018 neared 200,000 (196,142), while redundancies were 140,648. Of the latter, 65,620 were resignations; the rest were firings and the expiration of work contracts.
