This is a small employing industry and employment fell over the past five years.
This industry has a lower skill profile, with around 40% of workers not holding post-school qualifications. More than half of the jobs are for Clerical and Administrative Workers, Sales Workers or Machinery Operators and Drivers. Accordingly, the industry provides good entry level opportunities. That said, a relatively low share of workers are aged 15 to 24 years.
Wholesale Trade is projected to have subdued employment growth over the five years to May 2022.
