AI and cyber security skills rule the Aussie IT job market

1 min read

According to a report from tech recruitment agency Talent, the most sought-after skills in the Australian IT industry in 2024 will be artificial intelligence (AI), cyber security, data analysis, cloud computing, and software development. The report predicts that businesses will prioritize network security, cyber resilience, and the safeguarding of cloud-based systems and data. The rise of remote and hybrid work setups is also expected to create opportunities for talent from diverse geographical locations. The report identified the roles with the highest salaries outside of the C-suite, including enterprise architects, cyber security architects, and cloud architects.

On the topic of flexible working arrangements, the report found that 78% of workers value remote working the most, over flexible hours, compressed work weeks, and job-sharing arrangements. However, despite this preference, the majority of companies are enforcing a return to the office on a semi-regular or permanent basis. Talent’s managing director for NSW, Matthew Munson, warned that companies that offer less flexibility may suffer in the long term, especially considering Australia’s skills shortage.
