Job vacancies fell in July

Job vacancies have performed extremely well over the past year, but in July there was a 3% decline as renewed lockdowns took their toll. 

Vacancies remained 38% higher than pre-COVID levels, which is a mark of how successfully Australia has managed the crisis to date.


New South Wales saw a decline of 10% in July job advertisements, directly due to the Sydney lockdown.


While New Zealand looks to have cracked the full employment puzzle, with wages now rising quickly smart, for Australia the dream has once again proved to be elusive (for now).


Roy Morgan's survey found that unemployment and underemployment in Australia were rising again through July.
