WA Construction Employment Positive Outlook


The biggest improvements in employment are surprisingly in Western Australia, despite previous predictions of a crash in this region.

Unemployment in WA dropped to 5.7 per cent in March which is amazing considering the participation rate is at 68.1 per cent, considerably higher than the national average – 64.9 per cent.

Much of the improvement can be attributed to the investment in infrastructure by the WA government and private business. This is having a positive impact on the future job prospects in the construction sector.

As the second largest employer in the state, the construction sector can look forward to projects over 24 billion dollars over the next 4 years. Projects include Perth Stadium, Perth Children’s Hospital, Eastern Goldfields Regional Prison, Elizabeth Quay, the new WA Museum and others.
