As digital technology infiltrates every aspect of our lives, making our world easier, faster and more convenient, companies in Australia are rapidly evolving the way they do business. 

Australia’s ICT sector is growing as companies undergo large scale digital transformation through investment in digitisation, process automation and technology upgrades to compete and evolve product and service offerings on a global scale.  

Rapid advances in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and new emerging technologies are happening in shorter cycles, changing the very nature of the jobs that need to be done and the skills needed to do them, faster than ever before. 

Access to highly skilled workers is already a differentiating factor for successful businesses. But as we enter an increasingly data-driven future, demand for well-rounded technology professionals is at an all-time high. As technology evolves, savvy professionals who invest in learning new skills and developing leadership and management capability are highly sought-after. 



DevOps, Cyber Security specialists, and Data Scientists are only the beginning of a long list of critical tech skills that are in short supply. To remain competitive in the market, businesses need to attract and recruit top tech talents.

In our new Technology Talent Trends report, Six Degrees Executive tech experts - Katrina Park, Nicole Cooke & Mark Watson- explore the current and future trends in the technology talent market, and give you practical advice to hire top talent along with salary insights.
