The Recruitment Industry in Queensland, Australia

February 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 165

The Australian economy was severely affected by the global financial crisis. As an aftermath of the economic downturn, the unemployment ratio soared throughout the country. The only state that managed to thrive in these dismal conditions is Queensland where more than 4,600 new jobs openings were announced in the month of January alone.

Whilst the unemployment rate continues to rise in other states, jobs are still emerging in Queensland. An exception to this is the Cairns recruitment industry which has reported high unemployment ratios throughout the financial crisis.

Another amazing fact about the Queensland job market is that the jobs created in this state account for one-fifth of the total jobs created in Australia. Another encouraging fact is that the job market is finally improving throughout the nation and has shown increasing trends for one and a half years now.

This may come as a surprise to many people but the economic indicators are finally indicating that the economy is on the mend. Once the tourism industry revives, the Cairns recruitment industry will also improve.

According to statistics, most of the jobs were created in the building and construction industry. The reason for the upsurge in the construction sector was the cyclone which devastated the state earlier in the year. With the massive need for reconstruction throughout Queensland, the recruitment industry is flourishing.

Another sector which is currently prospering is the mining & energy sector. Mining jobs are being created every day which is an excellent prospect for Cairns recruitment industry as Cairns serves as a gateway for mining jobs.

As the mining industry increases its pace, the recruitment industry is likely to benefit from it. Queensland has vast reserves of coal and with the increasing demand in both domestic and international markets; the employment ratio will continue to improve. There is great demand for engineers, welders, underground drillers, jumbo operators, boiler operators, pipe fitters, sheet metal workers.

The hospitality and the tourism industries are still badly affected by the financial crisis and jobs in these previously thriving sectors are still scarce. However, as the economy gains momentum, the tourism industry will step up its pace and Cairns recruitment agencies will get back to work.

Cairns provides easy access to the rainforests and the Great Barrier Reef. Both of these incredible locations have attracted tourists from all over the world. With the improving global financial outlook, the employment rate is bound to increase.

Vlasta Eriksson writes articles about the Australian HR Industry and is the owner of a Cairns Recruitment Agency, called Signature Staff.
