The healthcare industry is Australia’s largest and fastest growing industry. This highly important workforce is projected to have the strongest employment growth over any other industry, supported by the implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and Australia’s increasingly ageing population. Community services positions recorded the strongest growth of all broad occupation groups over the past five years, rising by 21.4% or 234,300 new jobs!
Now more than ever before, Australia is in need of registered nurses, aged and disability care workers, personal care workers, nursing support workers and a whole range of other roles relevant to the community services sector.
Possible jobs in this industry include:
- Aged care worker
- Disability services worker
- Personal caregiver
- Residential disability support worker
- Respite care worker
- Aged care supervisor
If you’re looking for a new career path or to apply your desire to help people in need, consider a role in a rewarding, people-centric industry like community services today.
