Demand for Electricians in Sydney Continues to Boom

2020 is here, and it’s shaping up to be a great year for sparkies. If you’re an electrician in Australia, you’re in a great position to secure work with some of the nation’s leading contractors – with top rates on offer for high quality candidates. The latest research shows that qualified electricians are in short supply, largely due to the fact that older electricians are reaching retirement and fewer young people are taking up apprenticeships to fill their place. But if you’re already qualified, the future looks bright with the number of available jobs rising 66 percent in the 12 months leading up to October 2018 and continuing to climb to this date.

Below we will highlight the key reasons and facts why electricians are in for such a treat throughout 2020 and beyond. Keen to get involved? Contact a Brix Labour Hire specialist today and we’ll match you with a position commensurate with your skills and experience.
