Six jobs in demand in Australia
According to a recent quarterly report by recruiter, Hays, the following six jobs are predicted to be in demand in 2017. The report highlights jobs that Australian employees will likely need to fill:
- financial analyst
- site manager
- data analyst
- development and operations engineer
- sales administrator
The report also says there is a strong demand for those with experience in renewable energy and human resources (HR). The Government’s new National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), is also expected to create many new job opportunities within Australia.
Hays went on to say that infrastructure development is still a major driving force within the country. The demand for the multi-skilled worker in the construction, engineering and property sectors is also expected to raise the bar for new jobs.
Candidates who can go the extra mile or offer extra value, have the greatest advantage. This could be through gaining additional qualifications or experience and not only perform the specific duties of the role, but who can stand out from the crowd.
