Human Resources (HR) & Recruitment Graduate Jobs Overview

The human resources (HR) industry in Australia has experienced significant growth over the past few years, particularly the recruitment industry, which has experienced over 6% growth in the last five years. The industry has over $3.1 billion in revenue and employs over 22,000 people.

It is an industry that is continually changing as it responds to shifting business environments including economic changes, government and media interest, new technologies and legislative changes. The use of technology, tightening budgets in relation to contract and temporary staff, and fierce competition has also changed the way the recruitment industry operates.

Finding a graduate job

There are around 7,300 HR and recruitment agencies in Australia, the majority concentrated in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, with head offices mainly located in Melbourne and Sydney. 33% of HR positions are in NSW, over 24% in Victoria and a further 19% are in Queensland.

Graduate HR and recruitment jobs can be found in a variety of organisations across the country, though, including in banks, health care services, hotels, government, manufacturing, construction and retail organisations.

The average salary for a graduate working in HR and recruitment is $46,000.
