International recruitment firm Hays has published its latest quarterly report showing the skills and jobs employees are looking for in Australia for 2017.

“In compiling our list of skills in demand, one common trend was employers’ requests for candidates who can add extra value,” said Nick Deligiannis, managing director of Hays in Australia & New Zealand. “That could be through previous experience in a related discipline, prior process improvements or efficiency gains, additional tickets or qualifications or advanced digital or systems skills, all of which allow a candidate to perform supplementary duties. Any candidate who offers additional value stands out.”

In terms of the active sectors for 2017, Deligiannis said there are a few to watch. “Infrastructure projects are driving the construction, engineering and property markets, professional services is active, the focus on cyber security and big data keeps the IT industry busy, and the continued emphasis on risk, compliance and financial planning fuels the banking industry.

“The rapid rise in robotics and automation will start to increase job opportunities in the industrial robotics and service robotics sectors, the NDIS is creating a huge need for front line case managers, and qualified childcare staff are still in short supply in education”, Deligiannis said.

The recruiter says that that the roles of Financial Analyst, Payroller, Site Manager, Data Analyst, DevOps Engineer or Sales Administrator will be in high demand in 2017. Those with experience in renewable energy, disability case load management or HR business partnering will be needed too.
