For retailers to thrive in today's climate, a skilled workforce is imperative.

Australian retailers have long been challenged by the availability of local talent to fill buying, planning and online retail roles. This shortage of skills is compounded by the lack of formal training options that support employers in growing their internal teams. It has become critical that the national training system supports skills development in these key areas to ensure Australian retailers remain competitive and commercially viable.

Extensive work has been undertaken to analyse job roles and define skills needs that allow individuals to make valuable contributions to a retail business.
