ICT Job Profiles

The Australian Computer Society (ACS) has released an "ICT Skills White Paper: Common ICT Job Profiles & Indicators of Skills Mobility" (30 December 2013). This may be of interest for those designing training and education to help someone get from one job category to another.

As an addition to its annual employment survey, last year the ACS asked respondents to select up to skills they use in their work section. The skills definitions they were provided with are from the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA). The results were distilled by the ACS down to 25 ICT job descriptions, at five levels. SFIA defines seven levels of job from the lowest 1 to highest 7, but only levels 3 to 7 are reported on by ACS.

The top ten most common job categories, starting with the most common, were:
  1. ICT Consultant
  2. ICT Manager
  3. Software Engineer
  4. Database Administrator
  5. Project Manager
  6. Business Analyst
  7. ICT Architect
  8. Systems Administrator
  9. Analyst Programmer
  10. Developer Programmer
The paper gives a one page summary for each of the 25 jobs.
