The Skills Shortage Quarterly presents quarterly analysis on occupation shortage pressures. Data underpinning the analysis is drawn from the Survey of Employers who Recently Advertised.
Key findings in the June 2023 quarter report are:
- fill rates for occupations decreased
- more qualified applicants were found unsuitable by employers for vacancies
- current competition among employers for skilled workers has potentially been more fierce in current times than during the mining boom.
The report also examines employer behaviour in periods of labour market tightness.
