Australia's fastest growing jobs 2024

A staggering 76% of Australian workers are considering pursuing a new job in 2024 according to Linkedin's recent research (drawn from the profile information of LinkedIn's 800 million members around the world).

No longer overly cautious about the prospect of a career move in economic uncertainty, this new Linkedin data shows that job search activity on Linkedin is continuing to increase year on year, with 16% more job applications in 2023 compared to 2022.

Cayla Dengate, LinkedIn’s career expert explains….

“In 2024, we are seeing professionals taking back control and moving to the driver’s seat when it comes to their careers. However, with more people looking for jobs this year, competition is going to be tough. Standing out from the crowd is now more important than ever. Investing in building your professional profile, highlighting how your skills are relevant to your desired job and staying on top of industry trends will improve your chances of finding the right opportunity,” 

Adapting skills for tomorrow's jobs, today

The new data highlights that skills for jobs have already changed 24% since 2015 and are expected to change a massive 65% globally by 2030 driven by the rapid advancements in AI.  Over the past year, workers have been forced to adapt and be more nimble than ever before to succeed in this new world of work.  Being flexible, agile, and capable of adjusting their approach, strategies and processes as needed are essential ‘soft’ skills to thrive in this new dynamic and fast-paced environment.   Entire industries are going digital and the rise of remote work is fundamentally changing the nature of how we work, and as a result ambitious professionals really need to adapt and continually progress to stay relevant.  Read more on the Importance of Continuing Education and Professional Development for Contractors.

Motivating factors for job search

The need for higher wages (49%) in a challenging economic environment and the desire for better work-life balance (33%) are the biggest motivators for Australian professionals to change their jobs. The data highlighted that they are also open to exploring new career paths, with 52% of professionals actively seeking opportunities outside their current industry or role.

So what are the jobs to look out for in 2024?

LinkedIn has released its highly anticipated Jobs on The Rise 2024 list, offering valuable insights into the fastest-growing roles in Australia over the past five years. This comprehensive list serves as a guiding light for job seekers, providing invaluable direction for career planning and skills development while highlighting long-term opportunities in the job market.

With Cybersecurity Analysts claiming the top spot this year, boasting an impressive growth rate of over 57 percent, it's evident that the focus and future of work is rapidly evolving.  Read more on the role contractors can play in cybersecurity here.

 The listed roles are showing a much greater focus on tech, health and HR - with a real emphasis shining through on the importance of companies nurturing the relationships they have with their employees.  

We were surprised to find that AI-related roles, such as Data and Integration Engineers, ranked lower on the list. However, the data used for compiling the list spans five years, and considering that AI has only recently gained mainstream traction in the past 12 months, it's highly probable that these roles will significantly shoot up in the coming years.

Many of the roles in these in demand sectors are often found in agile environments where highly skilled contractors are being brought in as required to fill an immediate need with their specialised expertise and flexibility.

 

Here is the complete list of job titles from LinkedIn’s 2024 Jobs on the Rise data:
