It is an interesting time at the moment on the job front with many potential employees worried that now is not the right time to change roles.
It is definitely a solid point that there are concerns new roles face a job security issue, however, unless you are a front-line worker, there aren’t many jobs or industries that don’t carry an element of risk.
We are still actively working on new roles and just last week had 10 new roles called in over the space of 3 days! The types of roles varied from property management, financial controllers, sales agents and marketing co-ordinators; however, they all had something in common – strong experience and a great attitude were essential requirements.
In speaking with our candidates, we have been asked some common questions that we answer for you below.
ARE THERE STILL ROLES AVAILABLE WITHIN THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY?
There are absolutely still jobs available in our industry and despite the ever evolving changes, the one thing that has not changed is employers looking for high quality employees that can demonstrate a strong skill set, longevity and a positive outlook.
HAVE SALARIES BEEN AFFECTED?
There appears to be a mixed answer on this one. There are some roles that have come back about $5,000 - $10,000 per annum and this appears to be more common at the higher end of the salary bracket. That said there are also salaries that have remained steady with no change. We are anticipating this to remain around the current levels and not drop further however expect that it will take some time for this to then increase again.
IS NOW THE RIGHT TIME FOR ME TO CHANGE ROLES?
Right now could be an amazing time for you to find your next step in your career or it may be time to sit tight for a few more months. Each individual circumstance is different so please reach out to our team to talk this one through on what is best for your particular situation.
