The top 10 types of jobs Australian employers need to fill right now

Analysing searches over the last three months, Search Party has found which job titles Australian employers are looking for in 2015. Ben Hutt, CEO of Search Party, says job hiring takes two to three months on average in Australia. The Search Party, however, has been able to bring that number down to just 10 days on average.

“There’s not sufficient growth impetus across the economy to make it really urgent,” he says. “In the UK we see real talent shortage in key areas which drives urgency and competition for candidates.”

At the moment there is demand for good sales people in Australia.

“Sales I think is in demand by areas going well as well as those not so well,” he says. “It’s across the board and this is national.”
