Home' Employment Forecast : MyCareer Employment Forecast April 2011 Contents Total Jobs
This sector is continuing to bounce back very strongly after the GFC. Jobs are now growing at 6.6% (year ended February 2011).
Full time jobs are growing particularly strongly (+7.7%), while part time jobs are growing at a very solid 4.5% over the year.
Nevertheless, this sector still has a below average share of part time positions (23.1%).
The strong growth has been brought about by the continued expansion in the construction industry as well as a general pick-up
in demand for business related services in areas such as legal services and accounting.
There has also been a strong turnaround for positions in the advertising sub-sector, as well as market research, architectural
services and real estate. Once again, refecting the improved corporate business environment, positions for management
consultants are growing strongly, with jobs up more than 15%. One area that is under renewed pressure is low cost legal work,
where global companies specialising in this service are expanding their marketing operations in Australia. These frms offer
substantial savings by processing such items as document review, legal research and contract drafting at lower cost overseas
All states are showing strong growth in this area, other than SA. Of the others, WA is recording the strongest growth thanks to
the expansion of the Mining Sector. The decline in SA is more a refection of the very strong growth this sector experienced in
that state in 2009. Queensland and Victoria are both experiencing strong growth.
With confdence staying strong in this sector and business expansion plans looking solid, the outlook is similarly solid, with jobs
forecast to grow by 3.8% on an annual rate by November 2011.
