40,000 new jobs in Australian oil and gas
Australia expects to create around 40,000 resources operations jobs led by the oil and gas sector where employment is expected to increase by 57 per cent from 38,943 this year to 61,212 in 2018.
”Global competition for skilled workers is increasing and with a long lead time required to develop critical skills, industry, government and education and training providers have an opportunity now to work together to develop responses to meet these skills challenges,” said a spokesman for the Australian Petroleum Group.
“Workforce planning needs to proceed quickly to ensure domestic workers are available to fill time-critical shortages in the second half of this decade.”
