Australian Jobs 2018 - added 30/7/18
Australian Jobs is one of the country’s foremost jobs publications. It provides an easy-to-read overview of industry and occupation trends in the labour market, and is designed to meet the needs of students, career advisers, people looking for work and those involved in the national employment service, jobactive.
This year’s edition has identified four key trends:

  • Labour market conditions are strong — employment is up by a robust 403,300 over the year to January 2018.
  • Young people are benefiting from the strong labour market conditions — industries with large numbers of young workers include Retail Trade (around 386,000), Accommodation and Food Services (385,000) and Construction (175,000).
  • Australia’s industry structure is changing — today, more than three in every four Australian workers are employed in a service industry, with much of the growth driven by Health Care and Social Assistance.
  • There are now more jobs for higher skilled workers — the majority of employment growth over the past five years has been in occupations that generally require post-school qualifications, and this trend is likely to continue.

The full report and a series of data snapshots is available on the Australian Jobs page. Download the Report - https://docs.jobs.gov.au/system/files/doc/other/australianjobs2018.pdf
