Here’s the plan to create 1 million tech jobs | ticker VIEWS



The Tech Council of Australia is calling on Governments to help deliver one million jobs in the sector by 2025

Leaders in Australia’s technology sector including Google, Afterpay, Atlassian, and Tesla have banded together to create Australia’s Tech Council. The aim of the Council is to push for greater Government support and set Australia’s tech industry firmly on the global stage.

They provide a trusted voice for Australia’s technology industry, with an aim to advise and engage with Australian Governments, businesses, and the community. They’re endeavouring to support the ongoing creation, development, and adoption of technology across industries.

The members of the Tech Council have committed to work with Governments at all levels to ensure that Australia and Australians take advantage of the vast opportunities technology brings.

“We have released a roadmap to grow 1 million jobs in the tech industry by 2025”

1 million tech jobs by 2025

The Council has launched its new roadmap to create 1 million jobs in the technology sector, by 2025. The Technology Council is working with Governments at all levels to create 1 million jobs, worth $250bn to the economy.

The technology industry is growing at a rapid pace, causing a demand for skill in the industry. The sector is looking for upskilling opportunities, more females and people who have never worked in the sector before.

The tech industry contributes approximately $167 billion to the national economy and employs about 861,000 people. This makes it equivalent to the economy’s third-largest industry, only just behind banking.

This will benchmark Australia against industries in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States, which it has the untapped potential to do.

Breakthrough for the sector

This move represents a breakthrough for the sector with extraordinary technology entrepreneurs and heavyweights behind the Tech Council of Australia.

Technology has often been seen as a niche part of corporate Australia, with more traditional industries like banking or mining labelled as the pinnacle of financial success. However, that is not the case anymore.

Australia’s economy has historically relied on commodities, but tech is shifting this narrative. The Australian tech industry has struggled to get support, but with top technology entrepreneur putting their names on the line to back the industry, the Government is now listening.

Heavy hitters in the Australian tech sector have come together to create jobs and turn Australia into a global tech hub.

“The tech sector is going to grow,

what we want to see is Aussie’s working in those jobs and being able to keep those jobs here on Aussie shores.”

Kates Jones, Executive Director, Tech Council of Australia

“This is going to be the fastest growing part of our economy,

it’s a $250 billion industry right now and will continue to grow.”
