There has been a boom in the growth of Australia’s information and communications technology (ICT) workforce in recent years, from around 600,000 workers in 2014 to more than 640,000 workers in 2016 reaching 722,000 workers by 2022. With growth significantly stronger than the Australian workforce as a whole, there is an ongoing demand for ICT workers and skills highlighting the significant role digital technologies continue to play in driving Australia’s economic growth.
