Jobs Added provides insight into the additional jobs required in your workforce to facilitate the implementation of emerging technologies.
The introduction and maintenance of machine learning tools and other emerging technologies will require several new jobs such as data scientists, software engineers, change- and project- managers, and educational trainers.
We do not predict the emergence of jobs that do not already exist in the workforce. Instead, we show that current jobs are transformed over time as new technologies emerge which require the role to incorporate new skills and perform new tasks.
What you can use the Jobs Added insights for
You can use the Jobs Added chart to inform your strategic workforce planning with a summary of the types of roles that will be essential to every organisation in the future. Use these insights to inform your internal mobility plans for the employees interested or competent to make the transition, and identify the skills your employees will need to reskill and upskill in to implement, maintain and successfully adopt the emerging technologies.
Understand the Jobs Added insights
Below the chart, you'll find three key insights from the Jobs Added data.

- The total number of FTEs that should be added to your workforce at the timeframe selected in the Years filter in order to implement and use emerging technologies.
- To see how these numbers and percentages change for different future scenarios, use the platform filters across the top of the page.
