MARKET OVERVIEW & TRENDS

SKILLS SHORTAGES
INTENSIFY

4 | 2012 Hays Salary Guide


The demand for candidates in a broad range of
industries across Australia and New Zealand can be
easily overshadowed by the colossal staffing needs
of those involved in Australia’s resources boom. Our
survey clearly shows that not only are employers
across most industries continuing to register both
permanent and temporary jobs, but for positions in
demand skills shortages have intensified over the past
year in both countries.
According to our survey of employers, skills shortages are
most prominent at the junior to mid management level for
operations staff (up ten per cent year-on-year), followed
by technical (up ten per cent), accountancy & finance (up
four per cent), sales & marketing (up seven per cent) and
engineering (up nine per cent). Compared to last year’s
findings, these skills shortages have clearly become more
intense over the year.
Perhaps that’s why 59 per cent of employers would consider
employing or sponsoring a qualified overseas candidate in
skill-short areas.
In terms of vacancy activity, 39 per cent of employers
increased permanent staff levels in their department over
the last 12 months. Over the coming year, 40 per cent expect
permanent staff levels to increase, of which the overwhelming
majority will be full-time staff.
Meanwhile 15 per cent of employers said they employ
temporary or contract staff on a regular ongoing basis and a
further 45 per cent said they employ them for special projects
or workloads. Looking ahead, 17 per cent expect their use of
temporary and contract staff to increase.
In response, employers are increasing salaries, albeit
moderately. According to our survey, 44 per cent increased
salaries in their last review less than three per cent, while 46
per cent increased between three and six per cent. A lucky 10
per cent received increases above six per cent.
It should come as no surprise that the mining and resources
industry led the way when it came to salary increases;
55 per cent of employers increased salaries between three
and six per cent while a further 20 per cent increased above
six per cent.
This was closely followed by professional services, where
53 per cent of employers increased salaries between three and
six per cent and 17 per cent increased above six per cent.
Looking ahead, the mining and resources industry has the
highest expectations for future salaries increases, followed by
professional services.
In other key findings, 84 per cent of workplaces allow for
flexible work practices, with part-time employment and
flexible working hours or compressed working weeks the most
popular options, followed by flex-place (such as working from
home or alternative location).
Staff turnover increased in 30 per cent of organisations,
indicating that candidates have become more confident about
seeking new challenges, while business activity increased in
60 per cent of organisations and remained steady in a further
22 per cent.

Towards the end of 2012 a large scale solar flagship project will also

Adding to Australia’s skills shortage is the challenge of attracting
candidates to remote locations and competition with the mining and
oil & gas sectors, where salaries are higher. In the mining states, the
cost of accommodation in areas affected by the mining boom is
another challenge. As a result employers, particularly in regional
Queensland, are offering relocation allowances or accommodation to
encourage rural working or relocation.
We have also seen counter offers increase along with the provision of
additional incentives as employers attempt to retain current staff.
Another popular strategy to help overcome the skills shortage is to
