					State and Territory Skill Shortage List
Northern Territory
The following is a list of occupations which have been assessed in the Northern Territory and for which employers are experiencing difficulty recruiting
suitable staff. The list also includes information on recruitment experiences nationally for those occupations where the national assessment has been
conducted more recently or the occupation has never been assessed at the state level. National assessments do not provide enough information to
form ratings at the state level, however, they do provide a comparison for state skill shortage levels.
Occupational reports for the Northern Territory, as well as those for occupations assessed nationally are published at www.workplace.gov.au/skillshortages
Definition of ratings used in DEEWR skill shortage research:
S       state wide shortage
M       metropolitan shortage
R       regional shortage
D       state wide recruitment difficulty
M-D metropolitan recruitment difficulty
R-D regional recruitment difficulty
