MyCareer Employment Forecast
Overall, professional and managerial positions in Victoria have recovered strongly over the last quarter of 2009 and the first
quarter of 2010. In fact, the recovery is so strong that this sector recorded its highest quarterly growth rate since 2001.
Managerial positions have recovered strongly with jobs up 4.9%. Both specialist and general management positions have
recovered. Full time managerial jobs are growing again (C4.7%), after the slump when jobs fell throughout 2009 due to the GFC.
Part time jobs are still growing strongly (+6.5%). These types of positions grew strongly over 2009. Even so, part time jobs only
account for 12.6% of jobs in this category.
Professional positions as well are growing (+3.5%). This sub-sector continued to grow throughout the GFC although the rate
of growth did slow over 2009. Jobs are growing for education professionals, health professionals and also ICT professionals.
This last group grew jobs even during the GFC. Another area of quite strong growth has been with the legal, social and welfare
professionals. Full time professionals have grown strongly (+3.4%) and also part time jobs have also grown (+3.9%). Part time
jobs now account for 22% of jobs in this sub-sector and this share has consistently grown over the years.
Although the Victorian economy is expected to continue to grow, the very strong growth of the February 10 quarter cannot be
maintained and growth is expected to ease to a more sustainable but still strong growth rate in the future. Jobs by the November
10 quarter are expected to grow by 1.2% quarterly.
This sector has recovered and is growing strongly, with more jobs to come
