Super Connected Jobs, written by KPMG partner Bernard Salt, explores how increasing broadband connectivity can bring about drastic changes to the traditional workforce.
The report shows:

  • Three million new jobs by 2030 – with a particular increase in the amount of part-time working women.
  • Significant digital transformation – for existing jobs like beauty therapists and personal trainers, and an increase in high-tech start-ups.
  • Entrepreneurialism on the rise – new start-ups and new technologies with increased connectivity will see more businesses move outside metropolitan areas. 
  • Better connectivity – will increase flexibility and allow people to work from anywhere, impacting all job sectors.

New report shows jobs of the future

The Government’s commitment to connecting all Australians to high-speed broadband by 2020, no matter where they live, will continue to support innovation in the job sector.
