Chronic Skills Shortage

A report just released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has identified areas of chronic skills shortage in the country.

In Western Australia, for example, the booming resources sector and a strong property market have fuelled the demand for skilled personnel; placing considerable pressure on labour supply.

In fact, there is a significant increase in demand for skilled workers in the electrical and metal trades, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

In New South Wales, the government has launched a scheme to double the state’s intake of skilled migrants by sponsoring employees in the finance, pharmaceutical, information technology, and biotechnology sectors.

The program will target migrants with professional and trade qualifications to fill vacancies in regional areas.
