Government agency Ilmia says employers have been finding it increasingly difficult to fill positions in the manufacturing and services sector.

According to the critical occupation list compiled by the Institute for Labour Market Information and Analysis (Ilmia), over the past four years employers have found it increasingly difficult to fill positions in 23 occupations.

Software developers, auditors, financial analysts and computer network professionals were also labelled as short in supply.

Its suggestions included bridging shortages by strengthening curricula and providing training for specific skill sets, as well as allowing foreigners to fill the gaps on a temporary basis.

It advised Putrajaya to train more workers in the machinery and equipment and advanced engineering industry, citing the country’s efforts to progress towards the Industrial Revolution 4.0.

For entry-level workers, the report said, employers have trouble finding staff with problem-solving and critical thinking skills who can work independently and communicate well.
