The New Job Titles for 2016

The job titles that are on offer in 2016 are nothing new, but there’s something new about the ones that were released this week.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics has been publishing job titles since 1995 and they are widely regarded as being among the most reliable indicators of economic trends.

They’ve also been linked to job vacancies, with the Bureau predicting that there will be over 16 million vacancies for some of the country’s largest sectors this year.

One of the more interesting ones to emerge is a range of occupations which the ABS considers to be ‘highly relevant’ to their job seekers’ interests.

These include health and safety workers, police, fire fighters, doctors and nurses, as well as construction and agricultural workers.

There are also a number of jobs that are highly related to other occupations, such as computer and information technology, financial management, and administrative support.
