National List of Occupations in High Demand: 2018

The Department of Higher Education and Training has published the National List of Occupations in High Demand: 2018.

National List of Occupations in High Demand: 2018

The DHET defines an 'Occupation in High Demand' as:

those occupations that have shown relatively strong employment growth, and/or are experiencing shortages in the labour market or which are expected to be in demand in the future

More specifically, occupations are in high demand if they:

  • have shown relatively strong employment or wage growth over the past 5 years;
  • are expected to show relatively strong employment growth in the future;
  • have been identified as being in shortage (demand exceeds supply) in the labour market;
  • are new and expected to emerge in the near future as a result of innovation, technological advancements, the development of new industries, or the implementation of government strategic priorities.

Information about occupations in high demand provides useful insights into the skills needs of the economy and society, especially in a context where the South African labour market is characterised by high levels of unemployment on the one hand, and skills shortages on the other.
