Health and community services
Health is one of Australia’s biggest employers. It’s set for further growth due to the population aging and higher spending. New technology, research and care models are also changing work practises and employers are seeking extra skilled workers to keep pace. Community services can include areas such as youth support, indigenous health, housing and child protection.
Workers in this industry can be found in public and private organisations, including hospitals, specialist medical and allied health centres, community support organisations and non-for profit organisations such as charities.
