Tech roles dominate the emerging jobs market

J Kruk & G O’Donnell

Tech roles have dominated as the most critically in demand by Australian businesses. Based on millions of user-input job titles over the past five years, Customer Success Manager, Data Scientist, Full Stack Engineer, Cyber Security Specialist and Experience Designer have all been identified as the top five roles in demand by organisations in Australia – across all industries.

Candidates in these areas have also been tight, particularly cyber security professionals, with a recent study by Frost & Sullivan stating there will be a global shortage of 1.8 million cyber security professionals over the next 5 years. We have also found key shortages in the Australia market of Data Scientists, Full Stack Engineers and Experience Designers – all niche and emerging areas.

While the need for professionals to fill these roles increases, many companies are faced with skills shortages and difficulty sourcing skills directly. “The top five emerging jobs are all in extremely high demand and when talent is thin on the ground, the ‘perfect candidate’ will be highly discerning and very expensive” the report states.

To combat this, partnering with specialist technology and digital recruiters such as Paxus can facilitate the hire of these rare skills, with Paxus for example already housing qualified pools of candidates in the niche areas identified by the report – ready to be deployed to our clients.

The report also identifies the importance of being innovative when sourcing candidates – targeting versatile candidates with the capacity for upskilling, which is also something to consider when recruiting for niche skills.
