As Hungary continues to navigate high inflation and costs, the landscape looks uncertain for employers. We can expect the jobs market to become much more active as the year progresses and professionals gain confidence to leave stable roles for new opportunities.

It’s fundamental in this candidate-driven market to check your salaries and benchmark against your competition to ensure you can attract and retain the right professionals. 

Using data from jobs posted by Reed, our 2024 Hungary salary guide is the ultimate salary checker. By using our guide to inform your average salary, you’ll understand what jobs are worth across the country, helping your organisation stand out from the crowd when hiring, or when looking for a new position. 

To further inform you, we conducted a survey of 818 professionals in Hungary on salaries, benefits, and finances.

 Our survey says…

  • 56% are actively or considering looking for a new job

  • 45% are happy with their current salary

  • 71% desire an annual increment


The Hungarian jobs market shows signs of growth in 2024

“This year, the job market in Hungary is expected to grow at a steady pace, although we will likely see a candidate shortage, as professionals leave the country for better opportunities. Over the last year, the inflation rate reached 17.6% and food prices increased but we’re already seeing signs of this stabilising and inflation has lowered significantly.”
