Top 5 Clerical and Administrative Worker Occupations
|Contract, Programme and Project Administrators||121,100|
Clerical and Administrative Workers provide support to businesses by organising, storing, manipulating and retrieving information. Employment is widely dispersed across industries, but regardless of the industry, jobs are likely to be office-based.
Employment of these workers fell over the past five years. Advertised vacancies also decreased (down by 19% over the last five years) to be around half the peak recorded in 2007. Nonetheless, there are employment opportunities in this group, including for people who do not hold post-school qualifications (about 40% of workers do not have post-school qualifications).
Employment growth in this group is projected to be subdued over the five years to May 2022 (up by 1.7%, compared with 7.8% across all occupations).
