The Top 5 Emerging Job Roles in Australia

  1. AI and Machine Learning Specialist. Whilst this may sound futuristic, you probably encounter AI and machine learning everyday through Google, Instagram or any app that captures data. Artificial intelligence is most broadly adapted to Digital Information and Communications, Financial Services and Healthcare industries. 

  2. Data Analysts and Scientists. With all the data being captured, it’s useless without someone to analyse it, discover trends, patterns and make meaning of big data. The WEF showed Digital Communications and Information Technology were most likely to adopt artificial intelligence, bid data analytics, cloud computing and cyber security by 2025.

  3. Information Security Analysts. It's no surprise with the rise of hacking and cybercrime, security will be a huge priority moving into 2023 after the threats to customer data across Australian organisations like Optus and Medibank.

  4. Big Data Specialists. With all the data companies are collecting, someone needs to manage it, right? That's where Big Data Specialists come in because big data is useless if it's not managed and organised properly.

  5. Process Automation Specialists. Technology is making our lives easier and more automated, arguable so we can enjoy the finer things in life as overall quality of life improves.
