Skills in demand
Foster Carers (out of home care experience) – These candidates are in demand in New South Wales due to a change from government to NGOs delivering foster care service.
Bilingual Case Workers – Candidates that speak a second language such as Arabic, Vietnamese, Chinese, Italian, Spanish and have worked in culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities are in high demand. Experience in working with asylum seekers and refugees are also in demand.
Midwives – A growing population is ensuring the demand for these candidates, but a small pool of candidates means this is also a skills short area.
Mental Health Workers – These candidates are in demand in Western Australia due to increased funding from government initiatives.
Nurses – These candidates are in high demand across Australia’s rural and remote areas.
