Logistics

January - March 2015

Hotspots

 

Distribution Centre Managers Employers are looking for degree-qualified candidates with experience working in a large multinational company.

 

HC/MC Truck Drivers These drivers are required to handle increased demand for transportation services through to February 2015. Drivers who specialise in transporting oversized machinery and equipment for the mining and agriculture industries are also in demand.

 

Casual Warehouse staff Personnel with Oracle experience are needed for the public sector healthcare system. There is currently a preference for temporary employees due to changes in the public sector’s permanent and contracted headcount.

 

Warehouse Managers Small to medium-sized businesses, sometimes family run, are creating new management positions in an effort to improve the efficiency of their business.

 

Experienced Forklift Drivers Drivers that have experience with reach trucks are particularly in demand at this time of the year. These Drivers remain in high demand across the industrial and transport sector as there has been a consistent job flow for blue collar temporary roles across logistics.

 

Trends

 

In 2014 we saw some interesting changes in South Australia’s retail sector, thanks to two large multinational businesses entering the local market. These companies will change the landscape of the retail industry, and subsequently positively impact the logistics job market in the state.

 

When one of these major businesses starts to operate new job opportunities will be created across all levels of logistics. This should provide movement in the market and give blue collar candidates who are currently employed on a long-term casual basis the opportunity to secure a full time position.

 

In Western Australia the outlook for the first quarter of 2015 is very similar to the last quarter of 2014. Companies are continuing to reduce costs where possible which will in turn create demand for Inventory/Logistics Analysts to identify further opportunities.

 

The recent arrival of multinational retailers to Western Australia and the imminent arrival of other well established retail brands will result in a continued increase in freight volumes and create opportunities in both the third party logistics and freight forwarding space.

 

As the Roy Hill mine starts to ramp up there will be opportunities for experienced logistics candidates across all levels, including client and contractor side opportunities as well as numerous site based roles.
