2018 has been a stellar year for the Australian jobs market. Unemployment is at historic lows (5.3), wage growth has finally picked up following a gruelling period of stagnation, and competition for jobs is currently sitting at around 5.29 people vying for each live position, down from 6.5 earlier in the year.

Daryl Keeley, MD of MACRO Recruitment says that “Australia is now entering a market that’s going to become extremely competitive for hiring and keeping good staff.
Money and career opportunities are going to dictate hiring success, as are working within high achieving teams.
Companies are going to be swamped with more opportunities to grow, but will also be battling with handling less-than-ideal hires as they try to stay fully staffed.” http://ow.ly/i/K5uJG
