Employment Dashboard March 2023

Job ad volumes fell slightly in March 2023, due mainly to drops in Sydney and Melbourne. Despite volumes declining in capital cities, job ads in regional areas rose in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.

Job ad volumes remain higher than pre-pandemic levels.  Workers are particularly in demand in the Education & Training, Trades & Services and Healthcare & Medical industries.
