Careers in Surveying - A Measured Path

There is a significant shortage of surveyors forecast for both urban and rural areas across Australia over the next 10 years. This means exciting job prospects for people entering the profession and solid job security during their career.

In March 2019, a new report ‘Determining the Future Demand, Supply and skills Gap for Surveying and Geospatial Professionals 2018-2028’ from BIS Oxford Economics offered the most up-to-date figures on the profession for some time. It forecasts a shortage of surveyors across Australia, which means increased job opportunities for students considering a career in surveying over the next 10 years

In Australia there are currently 8,172 various surveying professionals in the country – including cadastral, building, mining and engineering surveyors, as well as registered/licensed surveyors. However, there is demand for 9,125 surveyors. This means we need 953 more surveyors to meet the current labour requirements.

Of these surveying professionals, there is estimated to be a workforce gap of 297 registered/licensed surveyors. Clearly that suggests a lot of opportunities for students entering the field of surveying studies.
