LinkedIn’s InDemand Employer rankings were released last week, and revealed the most sought after employers in a number of regions. Analysing the data of more than 238 million members, LinkedIn examined brand reach and engagement between potential employees and the organisations.

Here are the top 10 most in demand employers in Australia:

  1. Rio Tinto
    Top skills: Mining, iron ore, minerals.
     
  2. Leighton Contractors
    Top skills: Earthworks, road, mining.
