Jobs of the Future

100 Jobs of the Future is a research project that aims to look at the future of work in an increasingly technologically-driven society. We investigated:

  • major trends and issues associated with major drivers of change – technological disruption, scientific innovation, climate change, globalisation, and population changes;
  • the changes in work that will occur in key industries and domains;
  • the jobs that will emerge in the future as a result of these changes; and
  • the skills and interests that are needed for these jobs.

Having identified 100 jobs that represent key work futures in major domains and industries, we have designed a ‘job explorer tool’ called the Future Job Quiz, to help young people think about work futures, and how their aptitudes, career interests and skills might lead them towards these jobs.
