Skills Shortage New SOL and Clarius Index

Australian Skills Shortage Clarius Index and New SOL

Clarius Skills Index. Australia’s move towards yet another national skills shortage has been confirmed in the latest Clarius Skills Index, with demand for skilled labour reporting a significant upswing.

In the March quarter, 15 of the 20 skilled occupations measured in the Index reported an increase in demand with eight of those skilled categories showing demand exceeding the available labour.

The eight categories are Building and Engineering and Computer Professionals, Building and Engineering and Chefs in the Associate Professionals category and Metal, Automotive, Wood and Hairdressers in the Tradespersons categories, which all scored above 100 in the Index.

Interesting that the draft or proposed SOL Skilled occupation List for 457 temporary workers and skilled immigrants is apparently not going to include chefs and hairdressers? Much to do with perceptions that only “Indian students” at “dodgy colleges” study these migration or PR pathways?
