Project background

Jobs Queensland has heard from stakeholders that work, industries and skills are changing, and that there is a need for an adaptable workforce in our state. There has also been significant media attention on the future of work as we move further into the 21st century, with much reporting focused largely on technological impacts.

Through research, consultation and other activities, Jobs Queensland aims to provide a nuanced conversation on the future of work and what it will mean for Queensland.

This project will investigate what the future of work could look like in 2030 for Queenslanders and our economy. This will include consideration of the implications for skills and employment policy of technological change, social and demographic trends, and institutional frameworks.
