The overall demand for Surveyors generally correlates with the construction cycle. And with the construction boom currently happening in Australia, it is no wonder that surveyors are in demand.
Shortages of surveyors are most evident in NSW due to high volume of construction work in Sydney such as Sydney metro and WestConnex.
According to the Department of Employment, this occupation has been rated as being in shortage in NSW since 2011, with only 29% of vacancies being filled in Sydney.
Immigration has become a significant source of surveyors with the NSW Board of Surveying and Spatial Information assessing overseas qualifications of an average of 27 people per year.
Only cadastral and mine surveyors are required to be registered in NSW by the Board of Surveying and Spatial Information of NSW.
Graduate surveyors are also among the most likely to be employed straight out of university, with the third highest employment rate at 78%.
A BIS Shrapnel report which was prepared in 2015 for Consulting Surveyors National stated that the workforce gap will grow steadily peaking in 2020/21 with 1,247 surveyors needed in NSW.
