Northern Territory Skilled Occupation Priority List Survey

Every year the government issues a list of occupations of high priority and priority that are in demand. This year, the list was issued in July 2019. We are now seeking your support to provide information for the NTSOPL 2020.

The Industry Skills Advisory Council Northern Territory (ISACNT) is an independent, not for profit organisation that provides advice to and gathers feedback from NT businesses on occupational skills shortages.

The purpose of this survey is to understand what occupations are in shortage and what difficulties you have in recruiting to them.

By completing this questionnaire and listing these occupations, we can ensure that your input is acknowledged, and your voice is heard. Your responses will provide a snapshot of the factors affecting occupational demand and supply in the Northern Territory labour market.

Analysis of the evidence we gather, will inform and guide workforce planning and development in the NT.

If you would like more information on ISACNT, please contact Michelle Burgess 08 7913 7509 or email
