As we enter the new year, the employment market in Australia is still running hot, offering plenty of opportunities for job seekers to find their dream job.
Despite a slight decline in total employment in December, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate remained at a low 3.5%, and there are still a lot of open positions available.
One of the most positive trends in the December employment data is the increase in full-time employment, which rose by 17,600. This is a great sign for those seeking what is often considered a more stable form of work and is a sign of confidence from employers.
In 2022 total employment grew by 3.5% roughly 100,000 more positions than it did in 2021, it was a huge growth year, that is showing no sign of slowing down.
Edutemps is seeing the demand for skilled staff in the education sector continue its upward trend, (aligning to the national trend) with plenty of full time permanent roles on offer. Overall, the employment market in Australia is still thriving, and job seekers, career changers, and those ready to ‘level-up’ should all be encouraged and optimistic about their employment prospects.
