Being one of the leading agencys in the sector, Edutemps have a deep understanding of both the jobs and candidates available in the Education and Training industry. Over the last 12 months we have noticed a shift in candidate availability, justified by the fact that many of the candidates that we have sourced for clients over the past 12 months have come from leveraging off our extensive network or traditional head hunting, rather than job applications from our job boards.

This is all confirmed once we dig deeper into statistics provided by Seek.

Vocational Management

The Annual Advertised Salary for this sector is $97,197

Seek’s latest statistics for Vocational Management in the Education & Training sector show that compared to Feb 2017, the change in job ads, is greater than the change in job ad views. Meaning that while there has been a 64%  increase in the supply of job ads in the market, candidates have not matched demand for job ads themselves, with only a 5.40% increase in job ad views. The dotted lines below show the trends over the last year for change in job ads and change in available candidates (job ad views).


Vocational Teaching

 The Annual Advertised Salary for this sector is $77,119

We can see similar trends for Vocational Teaching, showing that compared to Feb 2017. The number of Job ads are increasing, but the Job ad views are actually decreasing overall YoY.


University Management

The Annual Advertised Salary for this sector is $109,291

We can see that in the University Management sector, supply of Job ads have remained steady, while Job Ads Views have only slightly increase YoY.


So what can we take from all of this?

These statistics are particularly promising for quality candidates, who are now in even more demand than ever! Employers need to ensure they move quickly and explore recruiting tools other than traditional job boards as many candidates have multiple opportunities.
