Australia Job Ads Highest Since 2008
Job advertisements in Australia jumped 7.9 percent month-over-month to the highest since 2008 of 213,894 in May 2021, after a 4.7 percent increase a month earlier. This was the 12th straight month of gains in job ads, suggesting strong demand for labor could withstand both the COVID-19 lockdown and the removal of some government emergency support programs. "The Victorian lockdown is unlikely to derail the state's labor market recovery," said ANZ senior economist, Catherine Birch. "Even if we see some employment losses in June, as long as restrictions start easing from June 11th as currently planned, workers should be reinstated or find new jobs quite quickly, given the underlying strength in the labor market." "What is still uncertain is the strength of the transition from lower underutilization to higher wages growth, and then to inflation," Birch added. On an annual bases, job ads surged almost 220 percent.

Australia Job Ads Rise for 11th Month

This was the eleventh straight month of gains in job ads, suggesting strong demand for labor will withstand the removal of some government emergency support programs. The strength of ads was welcome given the ending of the government's JobKeeper scheme coukld see 100,000-150,000 out of work, according to Catherine Birch, ANZ senior economist. “We've also seen almost 160,000 additional people employed over the past two months," she added. "Strong labor demand should mean that many, but not all, will be able to find new work elsewhere relatively quickly." On an annual bases, job ads surged almost 200 percent.

Australia Job Ads Surge to 12-Year High in March
Job advertisements in Australia rose by 7.4 percent month-over-month to the highest in twelve years of 190,542 in March 2021, after an upwardly revised 8.8 percent jump a month earlier. This was the tenth straight month of gains in job ads, indicating the labor market's recovery can withstand the removal of some government's emergency support programs. Catherine Birch, ANZ senior economist, said the strength of ads suggested the ending of the government’s JobKeeper program would have a smaller impact than first feared. “We estimate that 100,000-150,000 people will lose employment, equivalent to 0.8-1.2% of the current workforce." “But we think net employment losses will be smaller, as growing labor demand elsewhere should mean many workers find a new job relatively quickly,” she added. “While we expect a temporary rise in the unemployment rate in Q2, we think it will resume its rapid downward trajectory in H2 2021.”
