Australian Jobs 2021 (Posted: 01/11/2021)

Dear Students and Families,

Hope you are well.

The 2021 edition of Australian Jobs has been released by the National Skills Commission. The report provides an overview of trends in the Australian labour market to support students, job seekers, career advisers, those considering future training and work and people interested in labour market issues.

Australian Jobs is produced annually by the National Skills Commission and functions as a single source of information on industries, occupations and local labour markets, and helps employers to develop the skills they need, educational pathways and strategies to find a job.

The report details the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the labour market and how labour market conditions changed for Australia’s youth.

A copy of the publication is attached and is also available on the National Skills Commission website.
