Australia’s top 3 recession-proof industries 

With rising interest rates, inflation and ongoing impacts of the Russian-Ukraine war, markets around the world could be facing harder times and possibly a recession in 2023. And many Australians could be wondering if their jobs are safe.

SEEK’s Senior Economist, Matt Cowgill says that there might be a few storm clouds ahead, however the Australian labour market is, at the moment, in very good shape.

“In a softening labour market, we’d expect to see more employers letting people go. Australia’s in a strong position to defy a local recession, however we won’t be completely immune from a global downturn, and there are some industries that will do better than others”, Cowgill says.

  1. Healthcare & Medical is the most recession-proof industry. People still need to access healthcare even during a period of slow economic growth, so demand for healthcare workers will remain strong during a recession.
  2. Farming, Animals & Conservation is also relatively recession-proof – people still need to eat regardless of how the economy’s going.
  3. Education & Training is one of the most stable industries, as people still want to further their studies and advance their skills during a recession. Teachers will still be required to work and remain in high demand, even during periods of uncertainty.

If you’re looking to protect yourself in a recession, it helps to know which jobs are the most in-demand right now. We’ve looked at the latest data – the table below is a snapshot of the top 20 most-in demand jobs in Australia right now, including average salary.

When we picture someone working in mining, we can tend to think of someone working as a shotfirer or a boilermaker, who spends a couple of years in the resources sector before finding work in another industry.

But when we consider that the Australian mining industry plays a hand in employing close to 1 in 10 Australians, we realise that this stereotype is quite far from the truth.

There’s an incredible breadth and variety of professionals working in the mining and resources industry. It encompasses people working in more traditional trades and project management, through to cutting-edge roles such as drone operators, deep data analysts and digital engineers.

What may surprise you is that career paths between these roles are far more accessible than they appear at first glance. The resources sector spends more on training per person than most industries, including tuition for higher education.

Students could enter the sector in a rewarding and highly-paid job with a VET qualification, and then progress into more specialised or managerial roles.

STEM qualifications are becoming increasingly valuable in the sector, as mining and resources companies invest heavily in areas such as green hydrogen and renewable energy projects.

With over 5,000 apprenticeships being created in the resources sector over the next five years, there’s never been a better time to enter the industry.

That’s why AUSMESA has collaborated with Year13 to create Resourcefulness, our free e-learning module to show young people what the future holds in store for the resources sector, and how they can get involved. For more information, please visit Resourcefulness via the Academy landing page.
