The DHET advises youth to study for fields that offer the most job opportunities. If you’re a technical person, go for one of these jobs. It’s also easier to access funding for fields that already have shortages.

This list includes train and tanker drivers, Clothing, Textile and Leather Goods Production Operators, explosives and much more!

These 34 jobs are from the ‘Occupations in High Demand’ list

The term refers to job areas (occupations) that are growing quickly or job posts that are becoming more and more difficult to fill (known as shortages in the labour market).
