More full-time jobs available across Queensland

By James Brown

Being able to find a job is one of the most important considerations for anyone moving into real estate in Morayfield. After all, employment is crucial for paying the bills, and not to mention that all-important mortgage!

There is good news for those moving to Queensland, as the latest figures show that 6,200 full-time jobs were created in the state last month. Analysing official data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), treasurer Curtis Pitt explained that there is every reason to be optimistic at the moment.

"We're getting on with the job of creating more employment opportunities through initiatives such Skilling Queenslanders for Work" revealed Mr Pitt.

"This is a proven program which will assist 32,000 jobseekers over four years."

The ABS data showed that in seasonally adjusted terms, Queensland's unemployment rate declined from 6.6 per cent to 6.3 per cent between April and May. As the government pointed out, this was the second-largest fall across the entire country.

Unemployment was also down on a national scale, the ABS revealed. A total of six per cent of the population were without jobs last month, down 0.2 percentage points from the previous month.

There was also an increase in the number of people in employment. This was up by 42,000 to reach 11.75 million in May, and the figure was driven by a rise in part-time positions for women and full-time roles taken up by men.
