Community Development An ‘In-Demand’ Job – Report
Monday, 13th May 2013 at 11:14 am

Job ads for Community Development Personnel saw a 94% month-on-month increase in New South Wales, according to new data from Australian online employment site, Seek.

Seek tracked job ad growth across 30 industry classifications and over 400 job types to find which job markets are fast-moving by measuring the job types which have the largest percentage increase in new listings each month.

Nationally, health and medical professions across the board have seen growth year-on-year, with the demand for medical imagers, pharmacists, medical specialists and dentists growing by 46%, 34%, 34% and 33% respectively.

Job ads for General Practitioners in April 2013 has increased by 95%, compared with the number of new job ads in April 2012.

Seek spokesperson Sarah Macartney says that it's no surprise that with Australia hitting a milestone population of 23 million in April that the demand for Primary Healthcare workers has increased.

"As our nation's population continues to expand, we could expect to see that growth mirrored by demand in the Healthcare industry,” she said.
