This is a relatively small employing industry that offers services including travel, employment, building cleaning, pest control and gardening. There was a modest employment rise over the past five years, although job numbers have fallen over the last year.
More than 40% of workers in this industry do not have post-school qualifications, so there are good opportunities for entry to the labour market. There are also training opportunities available, with around 26,600 apprentices and trainees employed in this industry in 2017.
Administrative and Support Services employment is projected to have above average growth over the five years to May 2022, driven by strong growth in the Building Cleaning, Pest Control and Other Support Services sector.
