Keeping an eye on the job market is always a good idea. This is especially true if you are a tech worker in Australia right now.
It’s a candidate's market. There is an almost endless selection of tech jobs waiting to be filled - meaning now could be the right time for you to make a change.
COVID-19 has added fuel to the fire of the tech skills shortage in Australia. One study by Deloitte found that an estimated 60,000 more IT workers will be needed per year over the next five years. With immigration at a standstill, that number of skilled new workers is not likely to enter the workforce.
For you, this is good news. You have the upper hand in negotiations and a wide selection of roles to choose from, allowing you to find the perfect fit. You can search for a role in a company whose values align with yours and who may offer better compensation, benefits or balance than what you are currently receiving.
On that note, here are our top tech jobs, cherry picked for you:
