The Australian Financial Report has released its 2016 Career Employers of the Year and Career Employer of the Decade report.

“The sector also has a strong demand for experienced, independent professionals who can help them navigate the complex world of finance.”
This year’s best-ranked profession was business management, with the average salary at $72,000.
The biggest winners of the year, according to the report, were education providers, with $21,500 salaries for teachers, $11,400 for secondary teachers, and $8,200 for teachers.
“The best performers in the tertiary education sector have also been successful in the service-sector sector,” said Professor Riddle, who is also the chief executive of the Australian Council of Trade Unions.
“While the workforce in the sector is still recovering from the global financial crisis, many employers are starting to attract graduates to fill positions in their sectors.”
A strong and growing supply of highly trained people is helping to lift the industry’s profile and to ensure that the sector continues to grow.
“Professor Riddle says employers are looking for the best in people, but they are also looking for talent.”
If you’re hiring, you want people with the right skills and the right experience,” he said.”
But you also want people who are willing to invest time, energy and money.
“And you want someone who’s motivated by the prospect of earning a high salary.”
The report also found that the number of Australian workers employed in service-related industries had risen to 4.1 million, compared with 4.4 million in the year before.
The study found that employment in service related industries has increased by 7.2 per cent in the past five years.
That’s a significant increase, and is partly because the Australian Government has been introducing measures to boost demand for services.
The report says that this trend is likely to continue.
“Australia is a strong market for education, healthcare, and health-care services and it’s not a stretch to think that there will be more and more people looking for those jobs,” Professor Riddles said.
