With the Queensland economy slowly improving, positions in the Professional/Managerial Sector are relatively strong, certainly
stronger than the overall jobs growth for the state. Positions are now growing at a healthy 3.4%.
However, despite this, the growth in managerial positions overall has taken a breather after a strong performance in the frst
half of 2010. The main reason for this has been a decline in farm management positions in response to the recent fooding.
Demand for specialist engineering management positions continues to grow strongly, while human resources management
positions are growing strongly as are ICT management positions. Hospitality and service related management positions are
starting to recover.
While management jobs growth may be taking a breather, the demand for professionals is very strong. Professional positions
are growing at 7.5% p.a. (year ended February 2011). Business, human resources and sales/marketing positions are all
increasing strongly. Accountant positions are particularly robust, with jobs growing at more than 10%. Demand for design,
engineering and science professionals is also rising, while jobs for education professionals are also increasing. As always, jobs
for health professionals continue to grow.
With the Queensland economy expected to return to better times as reconstruction after the recent fooding rolls out, more
growth is expected in the managerial and professional job areas. By November 2011, jobs are forecast to be growing at a solid
2.4% on an annual basis.
