Transport employment outlook positive

All sectors – 1Q19.

Hiring intentions in the Transportation & Utilities sector remain robust for 1Q19 despite drifting lower quarter-on-quarter with a Net Employment Outlook of +18%, according to the latest ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey. The survey collects data from over 59,000 employers in 43 countries, including 1,500 in Australia.

The outlook for 1Q19 is -5 points lower than the 7-year high recorded in the last quarter of 2018, but remains in positive territory with its second strongest result since early 2012. The latest data reveals the sector had the strongest year on year gain, up +7 points.

The employment outlook is strongest for the Mining & Construction sector with a Net Employment Outlook of +22%, while the Wholesale & Retail Trade sector has recorded one of the strongest improvements compared to the same period last year as the sector appears to prepare for a post-Christmas hiring boost.
