Skills Shortages Amongst Professionals In Australia

19 Nov 2012

Large skills shortages still exist in the sectors expected to drive economic growth in Australia.

That’s according to a new report from the Clarius Group’s Skills Index, which says seven of the 20 occupations representing 2.6 million workers analysed in the report were in shortage. Clarius chief executive Kym Quick warns large skills shortages still exist in the sectors expected to drive economic growth in the next 12 months.

The index found there was a shortage of 6,900 engineers, 5,900 information and communications technology professionals, 2,700 accountants, company secretaries and auditors, 3,200 sales and marketing professionals and 700 legal professionals.

The most “in demand” occupation was corporate service managers, with a 4.9 per cent increase in the shortfall.

That role had become increasingly important given post-global financial crisis compliance and stakeholder scrutiny, Ms Quick said.

The unemployment rate among Australian professionals is just 1.8 per cent, compared with the national rate of 5.4 per cent, with a shortage of 15,300 professionals.
