Overview

The Good jobs. Good people: Queensland Workforce Strategy 2022-2032 is the first whole-of-government workforce strategy delivered by the Queensland Government. 

This 10-year plan will provide the strategic foundation for ongoing engagement with industry, business, community and government stakeholders to develop a strong and skilled workforce, now and into the future. 

Queenslanders need a reliable source of information on the jobs of the future to make informed decisions about their career, their business and future skills and training needs. 

Jobs Queensland understands the critical nature of keeping our state one step ahead of the changing economy and labour market. 

As the trusted authority on Queensland’s future skills and workforce needs, we are readying Queenslanders for a growing, modern economy; a workforce designed to embrace and adapt to the pace of change.

Our Anticipating Future Skills data and free practical workforce planning tools and resources support industry, employers, regions and communities to help them see beyond the horizon and leverage future opportunities to create a stronger Queensland.

Anticipating Future Skills Series

Queenslanders need a reliable source of information on the jobs of the future to make informed decisions about their career, their business and future skills and training needs.

Our flagship project — the Anticipating Future Skills Series — is an authoritative, dynamic and evidence-based set of data, combining economic modelling and scenario planning to identify Queensland’s future skills needs.

You can use the Anticipating Future Skills data and insights for workforce planning, to identify regional jobs growth or to help you make decisions about your future careers. It also provides detailed employment projections to help you understand what Queensland’s future labour market might look like. 

To help you find the information you need, we have developed a statewide overview, and region and industry profiles. You can also explore the data yourself using either the Data Portal or the Data Explorer
