June - December 2016

Earlier this year we discussed the future of work and the rising ‘gig’ economy – a growing structural change in the way we work that aligns with the psychology of our growing Millennial workforce. 

That reality seems to be playing out in the Australian market as employers start to build momentum in the part-time job market. While the economy optimistically added 17,900 jobs in May (2,900 more than predicted), a deep dive into this result ultimately showed a decrease in full-time jobs and growth in the number of part-time jobs available.
