澳洲200,000 職位年增長 健康護理領頭帶動經濟
在過去 15 年，澳洲的就業職位以每年上升 20 萬個的速度增長， 當中，健康護理服務的就業機會將越來越高。
因全國殘障保險計劃（NDIS）的推行，老年護理員、醫療行業及社會援助部門崗位的需求都會相繼上升。根據社會保障部門的數據，預計在 2020 年，NDIS 將為澳洲帶來八萬個全新的全職崗位。
Immigration & population growth: 1 million new jobs in 5 years
Accordingly to ABC news, Australia’s population is rapidly increasing, driven by high immigration, and the economy has been growing continually for decades.
On average over the last 15 years, about 200,000 new jobs have been created each year. Multiply that by five and you’ve got 1 million.
Australia is relatively rich and changing fast. The above chart shows that a more educated society is helping drive very fast growth in the vaguely named “professional, scientific and technical services” sector.
This includes everything from lawyers, engineers and architects to designers and computer programmers. It’s now the second-fastest growing sector in New South Wales, Victoria and the ACT, behind health.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme, together with an increasing demand for aged care, is fuelling a spike in jobs in the health and social assistance sector.
The NDIS alone is expected to create an extra 80,000 full-time jobs by 2020, according to Department of Social Security figures.
Also, according to University of Melbourne economist Mark Wooden, the dominant employment feature of the current generation has been the growth in part-time work, which is out-stripping growth in full-time jobs.
