Peter Acheson, CEO of Peoplebank, commented, “We’re seeing steady growth in the ICT and digital jobs market stem from a continuous investment in digital technologies by Australian businesses. With a renewed focus on driving customer-centric experiences on a range of channels, there has been particularly high demand for user experience, customer experience, and data-related roles such as business intelligence professionals.”

Mr Acheson believes the strong demand is still outweighing the local supply of talent and businesses need to think more innovatively than ever to ensure they are offering both jobs and workplaces that are attractive to candidates.

“The fight for talent is clearly increasing in competitiveness, and we’re hearing more and more from candidates that they’re not just looking for high salaries, but also compelling work that they can have autonomy over, and be proud of,” continued Mr Acheson. “Employers and HR Directors should be looking at the roles they are offering as a whole and striving to offer jobs that come with flexibility, autonomy, creative opportunities, challenges, supportive teams, and compelling career paths. While money is a key driver for many candidates, it’s still only one point among many considerations for most.”
