Hiring trends across the Australia

It was another tough year for recruitment in Australia as market conditions continued to adjust to a post-resources economy.

Confidence among both employers and employees remained generally flat, which in turn caused a lack of movement across the employment market. Unemployment reached a 10-year high (albeit only 6.1%), which also contributed to reduced mobility within the job market.

There were signs of improved confidence as 2014 drew to a close and professionals began to look for new opportunities. Hiring mainly took place on a replacement basis, with few companies hiring for growth. More companies are showing signs of an increase in growth related hiring as consumer confidence returns and companies look to increase their market share in 2015.
