According to the Australian Government’s Job Outlook, the nutrition sector in Australia is small, but growing strongly. Employment opportunities in nutritionist roles have grown steadily over the past decade, and Job Outlook predicts more opportunities will become available by 2020. The sector currently employs approximately 6,600 people, and Job Outlook predicts it will employ approximately 9,000 people by 2020.
Due to the size of the profession, job opportunities for nutritionists are limited to certain areas of Australia. More than 65 per cent of nutritionists currently work in New South Wales and Victoria.
