Construction jobs in Auckland city are set to grow by 70 per cent, or around 56,000, over the next decade.

That's finding of new research commissioned by Auckland Council's economic development arm ATEED as part of its Future Skills report into how technology will change the city's workforce and skills requirements.

Professional services jobs, including accounting, legal, engineering and management consulting, are forecast to grow by 28 per cent or 31,000 jobs.

Previous research prepared for the Council has indicated 270,000 jobs in the city will be changed by automation.

So where are those changes likely to be? Kathryn asks Pam Ford, general manager for economic development at ATEED.
