The country’s demand for skilled trade workers is likewise strong in commercial construction, engineering, mining, agriculture and business services. As there is a labour shortage, there are a lot of opportunities to find a good job with great compensation in these industries.
Equally, there are also wonderful options available in white-collar roles that don’t require years of study or a university degree but still offer a stable career path with plenty of progression opportunities for those who are interested.

As an overview, the average salary Australia awards an office executive assistant is between $75,000 to $85,000 per annum. Whilst for a property manager, the average lies between $60,000 and $80,000.
