Human resources and recruitment managers are among Australia's five fastest-growing jobs this year when it comes to salary growth. So report Yahoo Finance.

The country's strong economy is a big reason the demand for HR and recruitment professionals is on the upswing, says Katie Bardaro, PayScale chief economist and analytics vice president.

Job openings had increased 13.9% last year compared to 2017, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

"Job vacancies are viewed as a leading economic indicator and a strong signal to labor demand," Bardaro says. "Therefore, the expectation is HR professionals will play an important part in attracting and retaining top talent as the labor market in Australia continues to tighten."

The top five jobs from 2016 to 2018 and their median pay for those just starting in their careers were senior product manager ($147,000), aerospace engineer ($83,300), recruitment manager ($93,700), application support analyst ($69,900) and HR manager ($85,800).
