Fastest growing jobs on SEEK in 2017

The resurgence of the Mining, Resources & Energy industry over the past 12 months sees this industry having the fastest growing jobs on SEEK for 2017.

Michael Ilczynski, Managing Director for SEEK Australia & New Zealand, said it’s exciting to see jobs across the Mining, Resources & Energy industry topping the 2017 list of fastest growing jobs on SEEK, based on largest job ad growth and job ad volumes from January to November this year.

“The pick-up of production activities by mining companies, especially in Western Australia (WA), after cutbacks over the past few years, is driving job ad growth on SEEK across the Mining, Resources & Energy industry,” said Ilczynski.

“The traditional mining states of WA, Queensland and NSW offered the most job opportunities across the Mining, Resources & Energy industry this November,” said Ilczynski.

Other fastest growing jobs on SEEK for 2017, based on largest job ad growth and job ad volumes from January to November, were Trades & Services roles - Welders & Boilermakers and Fitters, Turners & Machinists.

“Increasing infrastructure projects on the eastern seaboard, as well as the turnaround of the mining industry, is helping drive demand for Welders & Boiler Makers and Fitters, Turners & Machinists, resulting in these Trades & Services roles being among the fastest growing jobs on SEEK for 2017,” Ilczynski said.

“It’s not surprising our SEEK data revealed Welders & Boilermakers and Fitters, Turners & Machinists were among the fastest growing jobs. These professionals play a fundamental role in helping build infrastructure to cater for our growing population, and to support the maintenance of mining equipment,” added Ilczynski.
