Skill Shortage in Australia Labor Market 2019

Australia is stumbling with acute skill shortage in the country. Many jobs are going unfilled as Australian employers are unable to find the skilled workers with specialized skills. A report titled “The path to prosperity: Why the future of work is human” released by Deloitte says that nearly 243,200 jobs lay vacant in May 2019. This indicated an increase of 0.3% as compared to February 2019.

The Department of Employment, Skills, Small, and Family Business does regular research to recognize the skill shortages in Australia. The Department releases the skill shortage occupation at the national, state and regional levels.

The report suggests that following occupations are facing skill shortage:

  • Automotive Trades occupations like Motor Mechanics, Electricians, Vehicle painters
  • Engineering occupations like civil, mechanical and electrical
  • Engineering Trade occupations like mechanists, aircraft maintenance engineers, metal fitters
  • Food Trades occupations like bakers, chefs, cooks, butchers etc.
  • Health Professionals like speech therapists, optometrists, sonographers etc.
  • Teachers
  • Nurses

Based on the skill shortage across various occupations, the Australian Government on a timely basis updates the Australia SOL List to take care of the skill shortages prevailing in the country.
