Australia will be left scrambling to find carers, electricians, chefs and more as the growing skills shortage bites harder in coming years. Government projections have identified the top 10 jobs that will be in need of a new influx of trained workers in the coming five years. Immigration levels are slowly rising post-pandemic, but Australia’s previous stringent lockdown laws have left people wary of travelling down under for a job. It’s an issue the government hopes to address with its upcoming jobs and skills summit next month, as well as increased spending on vocational education and training.
Here are the top 10 professions the government believes are looking at critical shortages.
- Construction managers
- Civil engineering professionals
- Early childhood teachers
- Registered nurses
- ICT (information and communications technology) business and systems analysts
- Software and applications programmers
- Child carers
- Age and disability carers
