New research into Australia's ever-changing workforce has revealed the most in-demand jobs and which professions should be avoided.

While cash register operators, advertising and public relations and primary education teachers are in high demand, some of the most common jobs in Australia are now declining.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, nearly four million Australians, or a third of the working population, are employed in 20 professions.

But an analysis of the latest ABS labor market data from The Australian revealed that some of the most common jobs are now being threatened.

The most common task is sales assistants, which account for 434,921 jobs.

But the changing retail market means that there are 126,174 fewer sales assistants than in 2016, which have fallen by 23 percent and are at the top of the list of jobs with the worst decline.

Administrative positions also decrease with chief executives and directors under the second largest threat with 31,000 fewer jobs.

The number of supervisors has fallen by 31 percent, as have call center and customer service managers, while the number of general managers has also fallen.

Primary education teachers and teaching assistants are among the sixth fastest growing jobs

Despite the emergence of self-service checkouts in stores, checkout operators and cashiers are the fastest growing job in Australia with a whopping 69 percent growth.

The list of the fastest growing jobs in Australia is also good news for advertising and public relations managers (32 percent), software and application programmers (also 32 percent), accountants (16 percent) and primary education teachers (17 percent).

Demographer Bernard Salt predicts future retail space for more childcare, elderly care and healthcare.

& # 39; Cafes, food courts and restaurants – and food delivery drivers – will undoubtedly expand to meet our insatiable lifestyle demands, & # 39; he wrote in a recent column for The Australian.

& # 39; Wellness centers such as massage, pilates, physical therapy, podiatry and beauty therapists (including manicures) will become more popular as we get older, as we become more prosperous and self-satisfied. & # 39;

The figures also questioned the value of university degrees in the constantly changing workforce.

Tom Larter, general manager of technology company WithYouWithMe believes it is more important to get to the staff earlier than to spend a maximum of five years in a lecture room.

& # 39; Jobs change so quickly, you have to start with your first job and then learn to use lifelong to build up your skills, & # 39; said Mr. Larter news.com.au.

& # 39; Discover what you are good at, quickly make yourself competitive by learning demanding skills, work in the workforce as quickly as possible and then continuously learn throughout your career. & # 39;

He also urged Australia to consider an emerging career that did not exist ten years ago.

& # 39; We have coach drivers and junior sailors without cyber security experience attended a 12-week training course and are looking for a job, & # 39; said Mr. Larter.
