Detailed analysis

In order to determine the expected outlook of an occupation, the magnitude of the difference between the projected total numbers of new job seekers and job openings over the whole projection period (2017-2026) is analyzed in conjunction with an assessment of labour market conditions in recent years. The intention is to determine if recent labour market conditions (surplus, balance or shortage) are expected to persist or change over the period 2017-2026. For instance, if the analysis of key labour market indicators suggests that the number of job seekers was insufficient to fill the job openings (a shortage of workers) in an occupational group in recent years, the projections are used to assess if this situation will continue over the projection period or if the occupation will move towards balanced conditions.

Over the 2014-2016 period, employment in this occupational group increased slightly. The unemployment rate rose as well, reaching 6.6% in 2016, compared to the national average of 7.0%. However, the average hourly wage for this occupational group increased faster than the average for all occupations. The mixed signals of key labour market indicators required the analysis of additional indicators, which suggested that the number of job seekers was sufficient to fill the job openings in this occupational group over the 2014-2016 period.

For Advertising, marketing and public relations managers & Other business services managers, over the period 2017-2026, new job openings (arising from expansion demand and replacement demand) are expected to total 18,600, while 18,600 new job seekers (arising from school leavers, immigration and mobility) are expected to be available to fill them.

As job openings and job seekers are projected to be at relatively similar levels over the 2017-2026 period, the balance between labour supply and demand seen in recent years is expected to continue over the projection period. The majority of the job openings are expected to arise from retirements. Because many years of experience are typically needed to obtain a job in this occupation, workers tend to be older than the average, and they also retire slightly earlier than the average as they can usually obtain a higher retirement income even when retiring early. The gap between the median age and the median retirement age for workers in this occupation is smaller than the gap for all occupations, which explains why the retirement rate is higher than for other occupations. Employment growth is expected to be smaller than the average for all occupations, with less job creation than over the 2007-2016 period. With regard to labour supply, the majority of job seekers will come from other occupations, primarily other management occupations. Indeed, many years of experience are generally required to obtain a management position. A sizeable number of new immigrants are also expected to seek employment in this occupation. Finally, very few job seekers will come directly from the school system.
