Next month's Vacancy Report will be released on Wednesday 18 April 2018.
The IVI is the only publicly available source of detailed data on online vacancies, including for around 350 occupations (at all skill levels), as well as for all states/territories and 37 regions. The IVI is based on a count of online job advertisements newly lodged on SEEK, CareerOne and Australian JobSearch during the month. As such, the IVI does not reflect the total number of job advertisements in the labour market as it does not include jobs advertised through other online job boards, employer websites, word of mouth, in newspapers, and advertisements in shop windows. The IVI also does not take account of multiple positions being advertised in a single job advertisement.
In response to the growing popularity of the Internet Vacancy Index, the Department of Jobs and Small Business releases the monthly Vacancy Report and associated data files by email to frequent users.
