The Fishing Biologist has the lowest number of vacant jobs in the entire Fishing Biology Department since 2011.
The number of vacancies has dropped to 10 from 18.
A total of 921 Fishing Biologists are working in Queensland’s top 50 regional areas.
This means that over 11,000 jobs have been lost since 2011, with almost half of them being in Queensland.
According to the Fisheries Biologist’s regional manager, Mark Williams, the recruitment process is now “completely different” to what it was when the current vacancy rate was 10.
“The recruitment process has changed significantly, and is now completely different to what we were before.”
The focus is on retention and not just on finding an appropriate candidate, but also on getting the best candidate in the area.
“The Department has also moved away from recruiting a candidate based on a career path, as they are now looking at people who are able to contribute to the organisation, rather than a career that has a clear path ahead.
As well as the vacancies, the department has also received a record number of applications, with around 14,000 applications.
Fisheries Biologists across Queensland have been told to consider applying for a new position as part of their current recruitment process, which will last until January.
