Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2014
SPECIALIST RECRUITMENT SOLUTIONS... There appear to be two very distinct market trends developing from a geographical perspective. Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory have experienced a very significant fall in demand while the major Eastern seaboard states have all seen steady demand over the past five months. The decline in the mining sector is clearly now hurting Western Australia while difficulties in mining and the motor industry may already be dampening demand in South Australia. STATE ANALYSIS WA, SA and NT experience very significant fall in demand CHART 3 ANALYSIS OF JOB ADVERTISEMENTS BY STATE AND TERRITORY FEBRUARY 2014 Chart 3 demonstrates that the vast majority of opportunities (86%) remain in the major Eastern board states. So while SA, NT and WA may have all decreased markedly they still only represent 14% of all vacancies. The national picture overall therefore is strong. REPORT Transport & Logistics Job Index SPECIALIST RECRUITMENT SOLUTIONS... Transport and Logistics job growth continues to improve this quarter. The Job Index shows encouraging growth over the last two month, but is still only 11% of all vacancies. The significant issue for the growth is the increase of contract and temporary work.

The Index now sits 2% below the benchmark set in September 2013, a fairly robust performance given difficult business conditions across the broader economy. The Index suggests the pickup in business confidence following the Federal election has not been sustained. Where permanent job opportunities have fallen steadily over the quarter the strength in temporary demand has been more volatile. Strength in October / November was indicative of the peak of the annual cycle, some softening thereafter was inevitable but job seekers should be encouraged by the pickup in demand this month.
