The skills shortage in Australia is starting to ease, and there is some uncertainty about the economy. Nevertheless, unemployment remains incredibly low so if you’re thinking of migrating to Australia, there are still plenty of opportunities to find work. Furthermore, the Australian government has increased skilled migrant quotas and bolstered its team to speed up the processing of skilled migration program visa applications. Do you have what it takes? The most in-demand skills that companies need nationally are: Project managers across almost every industry to lead the roll out of projects. Early childhood teachers to cope with demand driven by initiatives to increase access to childcare and the return-to-work post-COVID. Engineers of all kinds but particularly transmission and power system engineers. Cyber security, especially penetration testers as government and business becomes increasingly concerned about data breaches and cyber hacks. Office support – from receptionists and office managers to personal and executive assistants. Other skills in demand are civil project engineers; business analysts; service desk analysts; payroll officers; lawyers; industrial development managers; contact centre workers; accounts receivable; facilities managers; civil designers; labourers; boilermakers; fabricators and welders; forklift operations; ticketed crane operators; and licensed truck drivers.
