If you were confused as to which career to choose, then here is some motivation for you. Australian Taxation Office has just released the data on which are the top paying jobs in Australia currently. Like it was expected, jobs including high qualifications and well-crafted skill set dominated the list. To say in more specific terms, you rule the list if you are a male neurosurgeon or a female lawyer.

Medical professions like a neurosurgeon, ophthalmologist, cardiologist, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, and gynecologist/obstetrician find almost a good fifty percent space in the list and among this male neurosurgeon make the most with the salary of $577,674. In females, the judge role was at the top of the list with a whopping package of $355,844. This was again followed by various professions related to medicine like neurosurgeon, plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Third in this was occupations related to finance sector. One can easily see the gender gap prevailing in the list by female neurosurgeons getting an amount of $253,992 lesser than men in the same profession.

The lowest earning jobs were those that required least training and education such as fast food cooks, home helpers, the staff at eateries etc… The list also showed the shortage of workforce in areas like automotive, Information Technology, construction. Other professions like chef, bakers, and hairdressers also need more professionals.   The automotive industry alone has more than 27,000 vacant positions in areas like panel beaters, spray painters, and technicians. Nigel Muller, Executive Manager Training Auto Apprenticeships and Skills Development Centre Technical and Training Services said about this shortage being faced in the market, “The current shortage across the sector will rise to 35,000 positions in the 2017/18 financial year. New entrants to the industry who have completed secondary school are highly sought after.”

Here is the complete list of the highest paying jobs in Australia.
