Recruitment Conditions

The Department monitors recruitment conditions to identify opportunities and challenges for job seekers.

On this page:

The Department monitors recruitment conditions using the Survey of Employers’ Recruitment Experiences. Each year, more than 10,000 employers across Australia provide information about their local jobs market, including competition for vacancies. The survey results also identify practical information about what employers are looking for in applicants and how job seekers can better connect with employment opportunities.

Information for selected regions across Australia can be accessed using the menu on the left.

If you are a survey participant, please go to the Survey of Employers’ Recruitment Experiences: Information for participants page for more information.

Additional labour market information can be found on the Labour Market Information Portal, along with information on Employers’ recruitment insights.
