Australia Jobs, June 2010 - 300% of Projections
300+% Job Increase Over Projections in June 2010
During the summer of 2010, news from the respected business economy publication BLOOMBERG BUSINESSWEEK (reference link) was that Canada and Australia seemed little touched by the Recession of 2008-2010 that affected USA, UK, and other countries. At the same time, Australia experienced Unemployment in June 2010 of only 5.1%, the low rate when compared with USA and UK an indicator of open job listings in high demand of workers.
The number of job listings gathered across the Internet for Australia reached over 165,400 on the jobs search engines by June 2010.
A story on Yahoo!Finance on July 9, 2010 stated that Australia (ca.news.finance) possessed 11,100,000 people actively on the job; according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (reference). A report showed that economic forecasters predicted 15,000 new jobs for June 2010, but that the nation actually created 45,900 additional jobs - just over 300% of projections..
Employment Projections for 2010 - 2020
A full copy of Australia Business Forecast Report Q3 2010 is a report published by Business Monitor International and for sale online at the price of 335 GBP.
Overall, a broad summary for the upcoming 4thQTR 2010 is a 2.3% total growth forecast for the country’s economy, spurred by continued business and government investments and the increasing Chinese demand for Australian resources. This all led to a remarkable creation of 45,900 jobs instead of the forecast 15,000 in projections for June 2010, the end month of 3rd QTR. This trend is a firm continuation of marked growth beginning 4th QTR 2009. Chinese and Australian real estate sectors have also, reportedly, shown economic strength and growth during the last 12 months.
Whether there will be a slowdown or downturn in Australian and Chinese real estate during and after 4th QTR is uncertain during summer 2010. However, jobs continue to be created in July, but some analysts wonder about a possible Chinese property crash in 2010 – 2011 that would decrease the currently increasing demand for Australian resources in China. China’s business behaviors also include purchasing Australian companies and it will be interesting to see if this trend also continues. Other factors in economic growth include newly proposed resource taxes and their expected impact.
Employment Outlook To November 2018
The following top jobs are expected by the Australian labor department to provide the largest numbers of new positions:
- Healthcare for Aged and Disabled
- Sales Assistants
- Registered Nurses (RN)
- General Clerks
- Child Care people
- Retail Store Managers
- Advertising Managers

New South Wales, Queensland, and Victoria are the areas expected to gain the most new jobs in the country.

Visiting and Working in Australia 2010 - 2025
Since 2010, a call seems to be out to move to Australia.
The website Embrace Australia at www.embraceaustralia.com states that higher numbers of British residents immigrate to Australia than any other nation. The site relays information from publications such as Currency UK that suggest that the UK economy is rather uncertain and may remain so, while Chinese trade interest in Australian resources remains high and also is likely to reamain so for some years.
Embrace Australia tells us that many British residents retire to Australia as well as to emigrate for work, obtaining actual work visas.
Besides a strong economy, the climate in Australia is more pleasant overall for the British tired of wet weather and Americans tired of the cold in the north.
Education for children in Australia is advertised as top notch. Reports are that 80% of youth atteend higher education facilities as well.
An NHS system is named Medicare in Australia and offered to permanent residents. However, private healthcare remains available via arrangements at work.
Much of the culture is located within a short distances of Australian coastlines and beaches, involving outdoor activities much of each year. Sightseeing can be done in any number of landscapes, from rainforests to deserts, an Aboriginal Peoples still call the continent and country home in many areas.
