There are scores of lower north shore job vacancies on offer for workers of all ages and experience.

By ANNA USHER

Ongoing staff shortages caused by the pandemic have left hundreds of positions vacant from Mosman to Neutral Bay, giving local jobseekers the opportunity of working close to home.

Figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics released last week show there were 471,000 job vacancies nationally in August – 10,000 less from May 2022.

Lauren Ford, head of Labour Statistics at the ABS, said: “The number of job vacancies declined by 2 per cent over the three months to August 2022, although remained elevated in historical terms and are still more than double pre-pandemic levels.”

Many Mosman boutiques and cafe’s are looking for permanent and casual staff members.

“The large growth in vacancies through the pandemic has coincided with a decline in the number of unemployed people. As a result, there were a similar number of unemployed people (488,000) to job vacancies (471,000) in August 2022, compared with three times as many unemployed people to vacancies before the start of the pandemic,” Ms Ford said.

“Despite the overall quarterly decrease, the number of job vacancies continued to increase in some industries, such as Retail trade (up 15 per cent) and Accommodation and food services (up 14 per cent). This reflected ongoing labour shortages in a tight labour market, particularly in customer facing industries,” Ms Ford said.

In our local area, there are several new jobs we’ll highlight this week, suitable for a wide cross section of the community.
