After 18 months of major project initiation, we are seeing a levelling out of demand for project services related skills such as business analysis, project management and architecture. As these major projects progress through the project lifecycle, we have seen a shift towards demand for data and integration skillsets.
After the establishment of a number of key technology projects within QLD state government, demand has now slowed as projects become fully resourced. The resources sector continues to see a resurgence in investment within technology with solid demand for security and analytics based skills. With compliance based projects such as Open Banking now on the horizon for the banking sector, demand for fintech related skills are still in high demand. With a shortage of these skills within the local market, we are having to source these specialised skills on a national and international basis.

Brisbane is currently enjoying an extended period of economic prosperity and growth which looks set to continue for the foreseeable future. Significant investment is being made into Brisbane’s infrastructure with major projects such as the Cross Rover Rail project, the new Queen’s Wharf Casino Complex and the expansion of Brisbane Airport beginning construction.
Brisbane also offers a high standard of living with much lower living costs than Sydney and Melbourne (particularly the cost of housing) but with technology related salaries rivalling those of the these cities.
With nearly 300 days of sunshine per year, Brisbane offers an unrivalled lifestyle for those who love the outdoors being only an hour from the beautiful beaches and relaxed lifestyle of the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast and a short drive to the many national parks of the Gold Coast Hinterland. For those who enjoy the nightlife, the redevelopment of Howard Smith Wharf has added another favourite hotspot to rival the likes of Newstead and Fortitude Valley offering even more restaurants and bars to explore and experience.
A burgeoning tech start up community has positioned Brisbane as a major start-up hub increasing demand for specialised technology skillsets. QLD State Government continue to invest in technology programs that will transform the way we live in Queensland and with a resurgence in commercial industry sectors such as natural resources and banking, employment opportunities are strong.
