SEEK Employment Trends Australia: job market suggests those who can teach should
SEEK’s latest employment data shows that the outlook is promising for Australians considering a career in education and training. A 27% year-on-year rise to June 2015 in new job ads demonstrates a significant demand for educators and trainers.
Managing Director of SEEK Employment, Michael Ilczynski, says “the data also suggests that increasingly, education roles are not confined to the classroom, with a 256% jump in school management positions advertised within the year. Schools are acting more like businesses, with school management jobs fetching an average salary of $105,200”, says Ilczynski.
