The Internet Vacancy Index (IVI) is a monthly count of online job advertisements compiled by Jobs and Skills Australia. Data are available by occupational groups, skill level groups, state or territory and by regional areas.
In seasonally adjusted terms, job advertisements decreased by 2.0% (or 5,200 job advertisements) in January 2024 to stand at 254,500. Despite this, vacancy numbers remain at record levels, with around two-thirds more advertisements in the labour market presently then compared with the monthly average for 2019.
The monthly Vacancy Report includes spotlights on key facets of the Australian labour market. These bring together the wider breadth of data produced by Jobs and Skills Australia and our external stakeholders to provide an overarching summary of a particular labour market segment.
This month’s report is The Hard Sell: Why Demand For Motor Vehicle and Vehicle Parts Salespersons Isn’t Creating More Jobs.
Headline and detailed results for occupations, skill level groups and regions are also available in the Vacancy Report.

The Internet Vacancy Index is an ongoing project that seeks to continuously improve the accounting of job vacancies listed online, understanding of businesses’ use of online tools for advertising vacancies and users’ needs and interests regarding our data and reports. To facilitate ongoing improvement, feedback and enquiries are welcome.
See the Internet Vacancy Index Methodology Page for detailed information regarding the IVI, such as how the data are compiled, a map of the regional structure and important notes on use and interpretation of the data.
Jobs and Skills Australia publishes seasonally adjusted IVI data to better show monthly fluctuations in job advertisements, which can be affected by seasonal factors and economic shocks such as the COVID-19 pandemic. There is some volatility in the IVI series month-on-month, particularly for results post-COVID-19, and as such results should be interpreted carefully.
Jobs and Skills Australia thanks Seek, CareerOne and Workforce Australia for their ongoing contribution to the IVI.
