Skill shortages

For: 

The Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business (formerly Department of Jobs and Small Business) carries out research to identify skill shortages in the Australian labour market. The research results provide information about skill shortages at the state, territory and/or national level.

Overview

The department’s skill shortage research program covers more than 80 skilled occupations on an annual basis.

A paper outlining the methodology used in this research, including definitions for each rating, is available.

A rating of ‘shortage’ does not mean every job seeker will readily find employment - ratings should be viewed in the context of the full occupational analysis by reading the related occupational report.

The skill shortage research does not provide information for particular regions or industries, but the department produces a range of products which provide analysis of regional labour markets and industries.

Please note that these publications should not be confused with the skilled migration occupation lists. If you are seeking the current skilled migration occupation lists, or for information on migration programs or visa options, please visit the Department of Home Affairs website. The Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business regularly reviews the skilled migration occupation lists. For further information and details on the consultation process, please visit the Skilled Migration List page.

Information about Australian regional labour markets is available from:

Profiles of employment trends for occupations and industries are available from:
