Journos Shaky On Job Security: Roy Morgan

The recent slashing of editorial jobs from a number of high profile organisations has seen journalists feeling of job security plummet.

New findings from research giant Roy Morgan say 21 per cent of journalists and other writers rate their job security as “very poor”.

The statistics come from the company’s new unemployment figures. Other employees who were questioning their job security include vocational and educational teachers, automobile drivers (such as taxi drivers) and housekeepers.

CEO of Roy Morgan, Michele Levine, said the journo job cuts made these findings unsurprising.

“With most major news media, including Fairfax, News Corp and ABC, cutting back their editorial divisions over the period, it’s no surprise that journalists are among the most insecure about their future employment in the current organisation,” she said.

“Perhaps similarly affected by digital disruption and fragmentation across new entrants, automobile drivers such as taxi drivers are also among the most insecure.

“Meanwhile CEOs and managing directors have a heightened sense of their own job security at either end of the spectrum, being among the most likely to feel very secure or very insecure.”

The unemployment figures come from annual reviews of various jobs. The review measures job satisfaction, perception of pay, recognition, security, opportunities and cultural issues.
