Sector growth drives labour demand

AS the resources and energy sector continues to expand, demand for labour will do likewise.

Managing Director of Hays Australia and New Zealand, Nick Deligiannis said his organisation's research found a positive employment outlook within both the resources sector and the broader economy.

"Western Australia, Queensland and the Northern Territory are firmly in the express lanes of Australia's economy and there is no denying that the surging staffing needs of organisations involved in Australia's resources boom have driven the jobs market forward over the past year," he said.

"Employers involved in Australia's resources boom are not the only ones hiring.

"Despite a barrage of negative headlines in the media, the reality is that organisations across Australia and New Zealand are hiring and specialist professionals remain in short supply - both within and outside our mining and resources industry."
