ISACNT launches Priority Occupations in Demand Survey

For any business to grow, expand, transform, win contracts and keep operations ticking over, they need the right people.  Skilled people with experience and knowledge can be hard to find and even harder to keep.

Every year the NT Government publishes a list of priority skilled occupations.  This list is put together based on evidence that the jobs are in demand, are hard to fill, are possibly experiencing regulatory changes or require specific skills not readily available in the NT labour market.  This evidence comes from economic modelling and feedback from NT businesses. 

So how does a job get on the priority list to be eligible to attract this sort of support?

The list of skilled jobs in high demand is updated every year to make sure the occupations reflect the needs of local business.  Feedback from employers is an important part of the process.  If you have difficulty finding suitable employees, let us know so that your story can be included in the feedback.  The Industry Skills Advisory Council NT (ISACNT) works with businesses and industry peak bodies to collect evidence and make recommendations to the government.


Now is the time for you to make sure the skilled occupations your business needs are considered for the list by completing a short online survey.
