1 NURS­ING Al­most nine in 10 reg­is­tered nurses (86.8 per cent) are fe­male, the Em­ploy­ment De­part­ment’s Job Out­look data shows. About half are em­ployed full time (55 per cent) and there is very strong job growth ahead.

2 CHILD­CARE Males make up just one in 20 child car­ers. Job growth is very strong. Most work­ers are em­ployed part time (54.4 per cent).

3 PRI­MARY SCHOOL TEACH­ING This pro­fes­sion is made up of 85.7 per cent fe­male work­ers. About two-thirds of pri­mary school teachers work full time. There is strong fu­ture growth.

4 AGED & DIS­ABIL­ITY CARE Women have an 80 per cent share of this oc­cu­pa­tion, which is ex­pected to have very strong em­ploy­ment growth to 2020. Full-time work­ers com­prise just 37.4 per cent of the work­force.

5 HU­MAN RE­SOURCES Fe­males make up about half of HR man­agers (52.5 per cent) but a more sig­nif­i­cant 67.1 per cent of HR pro­fes­sional and 80.3 per cent of HR clerks. Of these sub­groups, man­agers – which gen­er­ally re­quire a uni­ver­sity de­gree – are pro­jected to ex­pe­ri­ence the strong­est job growth in the com­ing years.
