Recent opportunities in the labour market
A data visualisation is available on the National Skills Commission's Labour Market Information Portal - Tableau Public Channel
showing the 10 detailed occupations with the most job advertisements for each state/territory, on the job boards monitored by the National Skills Commission.
Explore regional IVI data by occupation
The Regional Australia Institute have developed an interactive map allowing users to explore occupational IVI data by region.

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.
