Brazil registers creation of 34.4 thousand formal jobs in September


For the sixth month in a row, the formal market registered hirings; sectors of transformation, trade and services were the main responsible for the opening of new posts

For the sixth consecutive month, Brazil registers the opening of new formal jobs. In September, 34,392 new jobs were created with a formal contract. With this result, the country accumulates 208.8  thousand formal hirings in 2017 alone.

In the month, the result marks the first creation of jobs for the months of September since 2014, when 123,7 thousand vacancies were opened.

The data are from the General Register of Employed and Unemployed (Caged) and were released on Thursday (19), by the Ministry of Labor. 

The Caged is a survey done by the Ministry of Labor that calculates the level of formal employment in the country. That is, it measures layoffs and hiring that involve workers with a formal contract. When there are more contractors who fired, it means that Brazil has generated new jobs, as it has in the last six months.


The main responsible for the performance of the labor market in September was the manufacturing industry, which had the opening of 25.6 thousand jobs.

In the wake of increased household consumption, trade also recorded a significant result. In September, little more than 15 thousand posts were generated in the area.

In the region, the labor market recorded a positive result in all Brazilian regions, with the Northeastern region standing out, opening 29.6 thousand jobs, followed by the South (+10.5 thousand jobs) and the North (+5 , 3 thousand stations).
