Occupations by focus area
Occupations grouped by focus area for ANZSCO public consultation
Updated as of 27/01/2023
Public consultation rounds will be held across 2023 and 2024 with each round targeting selected occupations grouped by focus area.
Focus areas have been grouped based on common industry (as defined by the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC)). Occupations for some segments of the labour market such as 'Clean Energy', may be reviewed across a number of focus areas.
We will be inviting submissions on these focus areas through the ABS Consultation Hub. Feedback will be sought on the accuracy of current occupation skill levels and descriptions and any occupations anticipated to emerge in the next 5 to 10 years.
Consultation rounds will remain open for a minimum of 12 weeks to provide users of the classification an extended timeframe to submit feedback on their area(s) of interest. Find more information on how to participate including the schedule for public consultation.
