Industry employment trends in Australia.

Across Australia, the industries with the greatest growth in employment opportunities were Mining, Resources & Energy (for the 12th month in a row), and Farming, Animals & Conservation – both saw a 37% increase in job opportunities in July 2018 compared to July 2017. Closely following was Government & Defence, where job ads were up 36% year-on-year.

Not surprisingly, Western Australia and Queensland continue to drive job growth in the Mining, Resources & Energy industry, although the industry’s job ads also recorded the strongest industry growth in both New South Wales (up 36% year-on-year) and Victoria (up 39% year-on-year).
Oil and gas exploration (and exploration more generally) have also been strong this year, alongside sustained higher commodity prices. In part, the strong recovery reflects the very low levels to which mining job ads fell – ads are not back anywhere near previous boom peaks but are likely to continue rising given recent announcements of new mining projects.
Some of Australia’s biggest employing industries also recorded strong growth in July. Job ads in the Healthcare & Medical sector grew 18 per cent year-on-year, while job ads in the Trades & Services and Information & Communication Technology sectors both grew by 17%. These three sectors were the biggest contributors to overall national job ad growth, and account for 29.2% of all available opportunities in Australia.
Four industries experienced a year-on-year decline in job ad growth in July, with Advertising, Arts & Media experiencing the greatest decline of -8%.
