Latest data from Jobs and Skills Australia’s (JSA) June Internet Vacancy Index (IVI) shows underlying labour market conditions continued to ease with online job advertisements decreasing at the national level and across most regions. The number of internet vacancies, though, remain at relatively high levels historically.

In seasonally adjusted terms, online job advertisements at the national level decreased in June 2023 (down 2.0% or 5,600 job advertisements) to 276,400.

Over the month to June 2023, job advertisements decreased across all Skill Level groups and vacancy numbers were down in seven states and territories.

Despite this, internet advertisements in regional Australia grew by 4.6% over the year. In capital cities, vacancies decreased by 9.1%.
