As of November last year the number of people employed by the construction industry sector in Australia stood at over one million (1.062 million, seasonally adjusted), which is up by 14,000 from the previous year and by almost 70,000 compared with three years earlier. The boom in the construction industry can be attributed to the residential construction activity and the high level of activity in civil construction.
As a result of the recent boom it’s good news for tradespeople and professionals in the construction industry in Sydney for 2017! With so many residential projects remaining and a good number of infrastructure developments a lot of roles are in high demand and will continue to be in demand into 2018.
Top professional construction jobs in demand:
Contract Administrators – are high in demand in the building market in NSW.
Site Managers – ideally with residential and commercial experience, again in NSW.
Estimators – needed for project homes in NSW.
Project Managers – in demand for residential and commercial work in NSW.
Top tradesmen jobs in demand:

Although this is set to ease over the next few years as the residential activity subsides it is good news for people in the construction industry in NSW and Sydney this year!
