Transport skills in demand

Recruitment specialist, Hays, has forecasted the hotspots of demand in employment in the transport and logistics industries for 2018.

According to the Hays Jobs Report, there has been increased demand for Storepersons, import/export coordinators, fleet controls and supply and demand planners, as well as drivers holding HR and MC licences.

The monthly ABS Labour Force report showed 14 consecutive months of jobs growth and Hays’ survey of employers found 45 per cent will increase permanent staff levels in the financial year to June 2018, so the six months ahead look set to be strong with continuing momentum.

“This is no nine-day wonder,” said Nick Deligiannis, Managing Director of Hays in Australia & New Zealand.

“We start 2018 off the back of a strong, stable run of jobs growth where the labour market grew by over 383,000 positions in the past 12 months. Basically, more people are looking for and finding work.

“New calendar year hires will add to momentum as employers fills gaps in their headcount to take advantage of strong economic conditions.”
