In the Q3 2015 Hudson Report: Employer Trends, hiring intentions within the financial services industry climbed to 19.9 per cent since last quarter.
The report – which surveyed 3,500 employers nationally – found that one in four employers are planning to increase hiring in the quarter ahead.
Hudson Australia executive general manager Dean Davidson said: “The Hudson Report continues to point to changing dynamics in the hiring intentions of employers, with positive conditions in financial professional services.”
The report found that New South Wales is leading the way when it comes to hiring intentions in the professional services sector.
“Permanent recruitment is strong right across professional services and improving within financial institutions,” Mr Davidson said.
Mr Davidson pointed out that the data reflects changing dynamics within the industry.
“The ongoing transition in our labour markets is intensifying and organisations are evolving and recalibrating in order to remain competitive,” he said.
“Part of this transition includes investing in new skillsets, to ensure businesses are equipped for future growth.
“Smart employers should be investing in opportunities for key employees to develop a broad range of skills,” said Mr Davidson.
