Skills Priority List Key Findings Report 2023

The Skills Priority List (SPL), produced by Jobs and Skills Australia, provides a detailed view of occupations in shortage and the anticipated future demand for occupations in Australia. The SPL is released annually as a point-in-time assessment of the labour market and serves as a valuable tool that can inform policymakers towards aligning policies and strategies with the current demand of the labour market.

The Key Findings Report highlights:

  • 36% of occupations assessed are in shortage
  • occupations with a strong gender imbalance were more likely to be in shortage
  • Technicians and Trade Workers, and Professional occupations have the highest shortages particularly in regional and remote areas.
