Olympic Dam flow-on to buoy em­ploy­ment

The Advertiser - Careers - - Job Focus -

SOUTH Australia is the only state to record in­creased em­ployer con­fi­dence year-on-year, the lat­est Hud­son Em­ploy­ment Ex­pec­ta­tions re­port re­veals.

Em­ployer sen­ti­ment dropped 2.1 per cent over the quar­ter to 20.5 per cent, from 22.6 per cent, but re­mains 1.7 per cent above that at the start of 2011.

Ex­ec­u­tive gen­eral man­ager Dean David­son says the Olympic Dam ex­pan­sion is ex­pected to sig­nif­i­cantly boost in­fra­struc­ture spend­ing, which is stim­u­lat­ing con­fi­dence.

‘‘ The flow-on em­ploy­ment ben­e­fits of this ma­jor in­fra­struc­ture project are ex­pected to be felt across many sec­tors over the next two to five years,’’ he says.
