Home' Employment Forecast : MyCareer Employment Forecast April 2011 Contents Total Jobs
The managerial and professional market has been soft in South Australia after a strong start to 2010. Overall, jobs in this sector
are down by 1.4%. The main reason for the fall has been a decline in farm management positions. Jobs in categories outside that
area have still been fat.
Managerial positions fell slightly in the year ended February 2011. They were down 2.3%, the decline in farm management
positions providing the main negative effect. However, with recent rains, it is predicted this sub-sector is likely to turn around.
Demand for business related professionals was stronger in areas such as sales and marketing, fnance managers and human
resources managers. Demand for engineering managers was also stronger.
The professionals market has been fatter in SA, with jobs steady in the year to February 2011. The market for accountants and
fnance brokers continued to be strong, with jobs growing. Positions for science, engineering and design professionals have also
been growing. Opportunities for education professionals continue to be strong, for health professionals a little weaker after
strong growth, and for ICT professionals also weaker.
The SA economy is forecast to continue to expand and, as a consequence, positions for professionals and managers are
expected to grow again, with jobs rising by 0.7% in the November 2011 quarter.
