ARE YOU AMONGST ONE OF THE 10 HARDEST TO FIND TRADIES IN AUSTRALIA?

Date 01.02.2018
The shortage of skilled workers!

Often it is likely that we find it hard getting qualified trades people to do a quick task around the house; employers in Australia sometimes find it hard to hire tradies too!

One of the global jobs site in the world has analysed the job market in order to identify the hardest positions to fill. These include jobs posts that have been an active vacancy for over 60 days!

You and your fellow tradies will be glad to know that the most in-demand trades are:

  1. Cabinet Makers
  2. Welders
  3. Plasterers
  4. Bricklayers
  5. Metal Fabricators
  6. Air Conditioning Engineers
  7. Automotive Mechanics
  8. Electricians
  9. Plumbers
  10. Carpenters
 

Some areas of Australia, such as New South Wales, are reporting to only fill 60% of vacancies for electricians. Additionally, the Australian Department of Employment states that most of the businesses it surveyed had actually failed to attract suitable applicants for the roles of plumbers, bricklayers and mechanics

 

What you could be earning:

  • Electrician: $74,401 - $145,000
  • Bricklayer: $65,665 - $133,300
  • Cabinet Maker: $67,720 - $105,000
  • Welder: $61,012 - $118,000
