Report highlights career prospects for the year

The Occupation Outlook Report 2014 is a comprehensive overview of job demand, likely incomes, and training requirements for 50 different career options across New Zealand.

The Occupation Outlook is designed to be one of the first places for young people and their families to look when making decisions on subject choices and future careers.

Career prospects

This second annual Report brings together the latest information from employers, industries, the education sector and labour market analysts in a format that makes it easy to compare career prospects across different occupations.

This year’s Report shows that there would be strong demand in all skilled occupations as the economy recovers. But hot careers are in the Construction, Engineering, ICT, Science, and Primary sectors.

Core streams

The 2014 Report includes a special feature on careers based on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

“STEM are increasingly important for growing and sustaining New Zealand’s economic competitiveness. They underpin the development of new technologies and new, high-value products, and can lead to a wide range of interesting careers.

Job opportunities based on STEM subjects are increasing, and this is expected to continue for several years.

The construction sector is another growth area featured in the Report. Increased demand for skilled construction workers is being driven by the needs of the Canterbury rebuild, Government investment in large road networks and infrastructure projects, and a recovering commercial building sector.

Extensive information

The Business, Innovation and Employment Ministry (MBIE) publishes the Report, with a wide range of information.

These include actual employment trends and other key statistics compiled by MBIE and Statistics New Zealand, expertise from Careers NZ, Tertiary institutions, Industry associations, Industry Training Organisations, licence and registration boards, and other industry stakeholders

It also contains qualification completions and graduate income information from the Education Ministry.

Steven Joyce is Tertiary Business, Innovation and Employment Minister. The above report was based on a statement that he issued on January 14.
