Work Employment Future in Australia
from the New Daily: Future of work: The top jobs of 2025. The ageing population and a tech boom will see registered nurses become the most in demand profession in the country in less than two decades, says research.
In 10 years Australia will have jobs we haven’t yet dreamt of, but the people that we’ll need the most will be from an already well-known occupation – nursing.
Based on projections from the Federal Government’s Future Focus report, Australia will have between 5.6 million and 6.4 million job openings in Australia in the years to 2025.
Nurses are already in high demand in Australia, with projections showing it is expected to become the fastest growing occupation by 2050.
With an expanding – and ageing – population, and constantly evolving technology, there are likely to be new careers in technical, professional and managerial areas. This is true of the coming years as well as in the next decade…..
