7. Financial Skills
Financial skills such as accounting, financial management, auditing, and investment analysis are all included in the Department of Labour’s skills in highest demand in South Africa.
A 2018 study by recruiting company Robert Walters found that financial and legal professionals will enjoy increasing demand for their skills, as businesses are hiring heavily in this area.
A high proportion of engineering graduates choose to work in countries outside South Africa, resulting in skills gaps in this sector. Engineering occupations dominate the Department of Labour’s National Scarce Skills List, occupying the top three positions and six of the top 10.
Once you’ve completed a national engineering qualification and you start applying for jobs, employers may well be clamouring to hire you.
