National Aquatic Workforce Report

The Australian aquatic industry continues to lead the way in recognising the skills and experience of older workers and women, with the National Aquatic Industry Workforce Report 2023 also revealing improvements in Indigenous employment rates.

The report, which was compiled by Royal Life Saving Society – Australia, presents demographic information and analysis on the key roles and make-up of the workforce across Australia and builds on research previously undertaken in 2019. With the support of the National Aquatic Industry Committee, more than 2000 workers completed the detailed survey which informed the report.
