The Australian Jobs 2016 report provides predictions of projected employment to the year 2020.
Over the next five years, it will be a good time to be working in a Community and Personal Services occupation such as a Child Carer, Aged/Disabled Carer, Waiter, Bar Attendant or Barista. This group is predicted to experience the largest jobs growth of 19%.
If those jobs don’t grab you, perhaps a Professional occupation is more to your liking with anticipated growth of 14.5%, including jobs like Nurse, Accountant, Teacher or Software/Application Programmer.
The Australian Jobs 2016 report says that employment growth for the the Clerical and Administrative Workers occupation group will only be 1.3% over the next five years. It is interesting to note that in 1990 this group made up 18% of Australia’s total employment and this reduced to 14% by 2015.
But according to Australian Jobs 2016, the standout not hot occupation group is Labourers. This occupation has experienced negative growth for the past five years and will continue to over the next five years (-1.3%).
What about geography?
NSW will continue its strong employment growth trajectory. In fact, it will speed up from 7.8% growth over the past five years to November 2015, to 9.8% growth projected to November 2020.
Predicted employment growth will continue to trend upwards in Victoria (6.4% in the five years to 2015 to be 8.8% between 2015 – 2020), Queensland (5% up to 7.9%), South Australia (0.3% to 5.1%), Tasmania (1.1% to 5.1%), ACT (0.7% to 7.2%). However, the projected employment in Western Australia will slow (11% to 6.9%) as will Northern Territory (9.6% to 7.4%).
