Job vacancies increased in all three Tasmanian regions in the past year, with professionals the "most wanted".
The Regional Australia Institute said:
- North-West vacancies in September had increased by 4.5 per cent since September 2018 to 285;
- Launceston and North-East vacancies were up by 27.2 per cent to 435; and
- Hobart and South-East vacancies were up by 19.7 per cent to 1226.
Medical professionals were particularly prized in all three regions.
In the North, the 108 vacancies for professionals included medical field workers, engineers, health diagnostic workers and business finance personnel.
Community and personal services workers (63 vacancies) were also popular in Launceston and the North-East, as were clerical and administrative workers (also 63).
The RAI said the 72 vacancies for professionals in the North-West included medical practitioners, nurses and business finance and HR workers.
Vacancies for technicians and tradies (59) and community and personal services workers (33) also figured prominently.
The South's 427 vacancies for professionals were led by doctors and nurses, health diagnostic workers, therapy professionals and legal and social welfare workers.
Clerical and administrative workers (171) and technicians and tradies (165) were also high on the wish list.
The RAI said professional workers should consider job opportunities in Tasmania.
"Tasmania is growing and with this transformation come boundless opportunities to rethink what regional Australia will look like in the future and the direction we want it to take," co-chief executive Kim Houghton said.
"Like many parts of regional Australia, Tasmania has significant job opportunities and we know communities are working locally to come up with solutions to fill these roles."
Dr Houghton's co-chair, Liz Ritchie, said Tasmania was becoming a popular destination for migrants, with more than 2600 moving to the state in a year.
"We know that people choose to move to a location for a number of reasons, with work opportunities a major consideration," she said.
"We also know that a location's liveability factor is also an important driver."
Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Tasmanian regional manager Martyn Neville said the research showed there were great job opportunities in regional Australia.
"The research shows you can have the best of both worlds - a great lifestyle and career - in regional Australia," he said.
"We see the key to creating a strong socio-economic environment as striking the right mix of skilled people, connecting and empowering them and ensuring they have access to the capital required to build communities across Tasmania."
