The job-hopping capitals of Australia

Are the days of staying loyal to your company dead? Probably.

The pandemic brought a lot of change in Aussie workplace culture, spurring the Great Resignation, which saw Aussies job-hop like never before.

But the trend hasn’t stopped, and workers in some areas are more prone to switching things up than others.

Brisbane and Adelaide were among the top three in Australia for both job-hoppers and loyal employees, research from resume.io found.

Australians traditionally prefer to hold onto a job for a long time, which may have kept wages down overall. But, as it’s an employee’s market right now, workers are much more likely to jump to a new role.

Rise of the ‘boomerang employee’

Resume.oi found the job-hopper/loyalty dichotomy was muddied in Australia by the “boomerang employee” trend of rehiring former colleagues to minimise recruitment and onboarding costs.

“The great jobs boom is certainly happening,” SEEK head of customer insight and strategy Elyssia Clark said.

“Candidates are increasingly aware of it and we are seeing more conversations around salary than in the past. Organisations are finding they need a really strong value proposition and must be able to clearly articulate why a candidate should join them.”
