Australia Job Ads Fall for 3rd Month
Job advertisements in Australia declined by 2.8 percent month-over-month to a six-month low at 189,272 in September 2021, after a revised 2.7 percent fall a month earlier. This was the third straight month of drop in job ads, as COVID-19 related lockdowns cooled demand for labor. However, ANZ senior economist Catherine Birch said underlying labor demand was still robust, despite lockdowns. "Nationally, the proportion of businesses reporting vacancies was still almost double what it was pre-pandemic," she added. "As New South Wales and Victoria progressively reopen through Q4, we expect ANZ job ads, employment and hours worked to rebound and underemployment to drop." On an annual basis, job ads surged 61 percent.

Australia Job Ads Fewest in 4 Months
Job advertisements in Australia declined by 2.5 percent month-over-month to a four-month low at 195,995 in August 2021, after a revised 1.3 percent fall a month earlier. This was the second straight month of drop in job ads, as COVID-19 related lockdowns cooled demand for labor. However, ANZ senior economist Catherine Birch said the decline in job ads over two months has been minuscule compared to the 64 percent plunge during last year's national shutdown. "It is likely that ANZ job ads will decline further over coming months and we expect sizeable employment losses in locked-down areas, with the national unemployment rate to lift back above five percent," she said. "But given the momentum going into lockdowns, policy support and signs that activity should rebound once restrictions ease, we think the setback will be temporary." On an annual basis, job ads surged 78.9 percent.
