PMs in demand: Recruiter

by 0 comments

Residential property managers, industrial property managers and property analysts are some of the professions in demand in Australia’s property market, according to recruitment experts Hays Recruitment.

In the latest Hays Quarterly Hotspot, residential property managers have been listed as one of the jobs in demand due to a lift in residential sales.

According to Hays, a driving factor behind much of the demand in jobs is the focus of organisations on structural change to drive improved productivity levels.

Managing director of Hays in Australia and New Zealand Nick Deligiannis said the list pointed to an evolution of Australia’s job market.

“The glass has gone off the resources and mining sector, and we are moving away from a two-speed economy to a system of micro-economies that are creating pockets of employment opportunities – even in the most challenge sectors,” he said.

“Demand is not evident in every function in every location, but there are pockets of specific skill shortages.

“Employers are replacing departing staff and making selective staff investments in roles that can add immediate value to their business."

The finding follows a recent report by specialist recruitment agency Buckmaster Hawker, which found Australia was facing a shortage of 3,200 property managers.

“We don’t have sufficient numbers entering the industry to replace those leaving, resulting in many agencies with positions vacant – in some cases for months at a time," director Jeanette Hockney said.

“We were shocked when we ran the numbers last year but 2013’s results were even worse, with 1,400 vacancies for property managers Australia-wide.”
