Healthcare Jobs to Overtake Manufacturing & Retail

More Victorians are working in healthcare as the population ages, with the sector replacing manufacturing and retailing as the main suppliers of jobs in the state.

Census figures released on Tuesday confirmed that more and more Victorians are working as doctors, nurses, dentists, physiotherapists, childcare workers and aged-care providers.

These professions now account for 11.6 per cent of the state’s 2.7 million people in a job.

The jump in numbers employed in the health and social assistance areas was up 1.2 percentage points since the last census in 2006.

Working as a sales assistant in a shop or store has remained one of the most common jobs in the state, with 11 per cent of the state employed in this area.

But Victoria – once a manufacturing powerhouse – now has fewer people employed making things.

Manufacturing still accounts for almost 11 per cent of the state’s working population – but it has dropped by just under 2 per cent since the last census.

Tim Piper, Victorian director of the Australian Industry Group, which represents manufacturers, said that while proportionally fewer were working in the manufacturing sector, there were still 310,000 people employed.

”We have a greater production in manufacturing than ever before and we are doing it with fewer people,” he said, pointing to areas of manufacturing doing well, including medical instruments and pharmaceuticals.

The figures also shine light on where the highest levels of unemployment are centred in the state. Surprisingly, Carlton and Parkville emerge among suburbs with the highest unemployment levels, likely due to high student numbers and ample public housing. City fringe and rural centres, such as Flinders by the Mornington Peninsula and Wandin and Seville in the Yarra Valley, are Victoria’s most employed, with almost 98 per cent of people in these areas in a job.

The census found the top five occupations in Victoria were mostly office-bound, with ”professionals” making up 22 per cent of the workforce.
