Queensland Community Services Workforce Census 2

Exciting new project – the Queensland Community Services Workforce Census

The Health and Community Services Workforce Council (Workforce Council) is excited to announce the commencement of a ground-breaking project in 2017 – the first Queensland Community Services Workforce Census.

The community services industry is one of the fastest growing and most vibrant industries in Queensland and relies heavily on the capability and capacity of the people who work in it. For an industry that delivers vital services, there is currently limited data that exists about the workforce in Queensland.

This exciting project will collect and analyse previously hidden workforce data across all sub sectors to define job roles across the industry, and the relative size of the workforce.

The benefits of the project will include:

  • A common language about jobs across the industry;
  • A clearer understanding about the scope of work undertaken both paid, unpaid and outsourced;
  • A demographic profile of the workforce;
  • A view of the job roles emerging as reform and practice changes occur;
  • A clear pathway across the industry as well as within sub sectors;
  • Identification of critical job roles; and
  • A wealth of data available to industry for workforce planning and development, analytics and projection purposes.

This type of industry and sector focussed workforce information has never been comprehensively gathered before across Queensland and will be an extremely valuable resource for industry.

This is an important opportunity to build an accurate picture of the community services workforce in Queensland and the Workforce Council would like to invite you to participate.
