Currently the chances of qualified Administrative Clerks finding employment are considered to be fair in the local area. Employment potential for this occupation is Fair in the local area because the number of job openings placed locally during 2010 and over the past several years prior appears to be stable but minimal and many of those appear to be only for casual or term work while most full time job openings are due to attrition. Cutbacks in the public sector and the consolidation of office/clerical work is also having a negative impact on demand. Clerks should maintain computer skills to stay competitive in the workforce, as there is a large supply of labour competing for available opportunities.
In addition to employment opportunities locally, opportunities may exist in other areas of the province or in other regions of the country. People who are able to work elsewhere may want to research opportunities for this occupation in other labour markets within Nova Scotia and across the country. The future employment outlook for Administrative Clerks in Nova Scotia is expected to be fair over the next 5 years.
